VR 2000 Enduro Oil blow by...

Just bought it and found out now it needs a rebuild. Oil is blowing by the crank case I guess so it needs new piston rings. Anyone know how much this would cost and if its ok to drive the rest of the season? Also you think its worth doing it? It has 42000 K on it.

How much oil does it use? Some blowby is to be expected with older engines. Does it fog the neighbourhood every time you ride it? Does it put the entire contents of the crankcase into the airbox every 328 miles? What? You're the only person who can answer the is it worth it question. Is it worth it to YOU?

We have an E model engine was told that the E model has a problem with oil leak an coming out of the blow bye. was told that they have to plug it an put new head an gasket to fix the problem

Blowby is caused by compression gas escaping past the piston rings into the crank case . Requires a engine rebuild to cure the fault.

Ok I have a 2003 Pontiac grand am and I smell gas in the oil an when I'm stopped at a stop light it makes a bubbly gurgling sound but only does it when the car is warm what it be????

Sounds like the car has very high milage and is experiencing blow by. Blow by is caused by fuel blowing past the piston rings because piston rings are worn from high milage. It could have a broke piston ring. If thats the case, when you take the oil cap off while the engine is running, there will be an excessive amount of air blowing out of the crank case. Engine would also run bad and have a dead miss on the cylinder with the broke ring.

I used compressor 3 wks ago and worked great.Now will not compress air above 25 psi.changed regulator OK,removed air intake filter,it has suchion.removed outlet tube,bloweds air.Oil in site glass.I did...


If you have air blowing out of the oil filler cap, I would suspect that the piston rings are shot. The piston rings are supposed to keep the compressed air above the piston, and air seems to be leaking past the piston rings into the crank case.

Engine has blowback what the possible causes and how do I repair it?

I think you mean blow-by, you fix it with a new engine, or remove that engine and rebuild it. the rings are shot and the only fix is a new set of rings. if they are shot, the whole engine needs a rebuild.

Blow back is for example 1800s US gunboat diplomacy forces japan to open trade with the west, the blow back is WWII, pearl harbor, invasion of china, etc. Or when the post WWII western powers decide to take palestine from the palestinians and make israel out of it. Read any news source any day of the week for the past 40 years and the next 200 or so to see how unhappy this has made the Palestinians.

During normal operation, a small amount of unburned fuel and exhaust gases escape around the piston rings and enter the crankcase, referred to as "blow-by".[7] If these gases had no controlled escape mechanism, the gasketed joints would leak (as they "found their own way out"); also, if the gases remained in the crankcase and condensed, the oil would become diluted and chemically degraded over time, decreasing its ability to lubricate. Condensed water would also cause parts of the engine to rust.[8] To counter this, a crankcase ventilation system exists. In all modern vehicles, this consists of a channel to expel the gases out of the crankcase, through an oil-separating baffle, to the PCV valve, into the intake manifold. In a non-turbo engine, the intake manifold is at a lower pressure than the crankcase, providing the suction to keep the ventilation system going. A turbo engine usually has a check valve somewhere in the tubing to avoid pressurizing the crankcase when the turbo produces boost.
If an engine is damaged or enters old age, gaps can form between the cylinder walls and pistons, resulting in larger amounts of blow-by than the crankcase ventilation system can handle. The gaps cause power loss, and ultimately mean that the engine needs to be rebuilt or replaced.[7] Symptoms of excessive blow-by include oil being pushed up into the air filter, out the dipstick,[9] or out the PCV valve. In rare cases of serious piston or ring damage, the oil filter housing's sheet metal can even burst at its seam.

97 satrun sL uses oil dont leak ?

I have owned several including a 2000 that i drive everyday.They have all used more oil than i thought was normal ( about 3 quarts between changes).A new pcv valve will help, i dont belive there is a fix other than rebuilding engine.

The oil dip-stick is blown out of its seat when the compressor runs

Without knowing what make or model you have, check the following:

1. Some, not all, compressor dip sticks have venting holes for the crankcase. If the vent holes are plugged or the check ball is stuck the dip stick will get forced out when the piston comes down.
2. Make sure the oil level is where it's supposed to be. Too much oil in the crankcase will cause the motor to work harder and the excess oil being splashed around the crank case can overwhelm the vents in the case or dip stick and again blow the dip stick out.
3. Worst case, you have worn or broken rings on the piston(s), a hole in a piston or a badly scored cylinder(s) and air is leaking past the piston and creating pressure in the crank case and blowing the dip stick out.

Oil blow back from out of the dip stick, what may be causing this and how to resolve the problem.

Time has come to retire this vehicle to the recycle plant and get yourself a nice new SMALL car thats fuel efficient.Most obvious cause is worn pistons and rings
