Check your PCV valve. Its the device that provides ventilation to the crankcase and valve covers. If its clogged or non functional it will cause the engine to **** or blow air from an area with less resistance, which is probably the filler cap. As its blowing air out of the engine it will shoot a little bit of oil with it

VOLVO V50 OIL ON CAMSHAFT COVER


I will try and simplify the problem. I have an oil leak, which I traced up the back of the engine to the cylinder head area.
When I removed the top plastic cover on top of the coil packs I found oil in every recess next to the coil packs. The crankcase breather pipe was also off. The source of the leak is not evident, but it is definetely above the cylinder head gasket area.

I have a leadk around my head cover. I found digram off my motor and i see there is not gasket. Is this correct ? and im also trying to find the tourque settings for the head cover.


Are you referring to the black plastic cover that says Volvo on it just to the rear of the oil filler cap? If so that piece does not have a gasket, and is held in place by 6 #30 Torx crews. It is not uncommon for the breather cap gasket to go bad and cause oil to collect in the valley beneath this cover. You should replace your filler cap gasket, remove the spark plug cover and get all the oil out of that area, then torque the Torx to 7 ft-lbs.
