What else can i do to solve compression pressure in the sump on a Hyundai H100 2012 2.6D bakkie? oil was blowing from the dipstick now pouring from the crank rear main seal.


First thing ,,,Is to remove dipstick and run engine [now how much back pressure have you got] if none ,ok .what is the oil pressure when cold,and when hot , should be very little differance, what ring gap did you give the rings when they were fitted. and was the rear main seal a good fit or loose fit ,,,and as for fitting new oil rings AGAIN and that stopped the pressure in the sump from blowing out the dip stick hole well THE compression rings are the ones which should have been checked for the correct gap and at -003thou per inch per bore,as the oil rings are only oil scrapers, and compression rings are for Compression is what you have a lot of in the sump.
Let me know how you get on,

Why is there oil leaking - or being pushed out - around my oil filter housing seal?


There used to be a copper ring as a gasket between the oil filter and the motor. Look if you forgot to put one there. (copper ring)
Supposed to be a new one with every filter.

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

Oil filter gasket blowing out with on minutes of restarting after oil filter & engine oil changed.


Hi hope this helps.
When you removed the old filter, did you check if the old oil filter rubber gasket was removed also.
Some time when you remove the oil filter the old o-ring will get stuck on the filter housing.
Then when you place the new filter on you have what is called a double gasket.
this will cause you to leak oil rapidly.
I would remove the filter and check for a double gasket.
Hope this helps FixYa
leave feedback please.

2008 kawasaki mean streak uses a quart of oil about every 800 miles. It's has been doing it for a while.


If it is smoking, then your going to need piston rings.

If its leaking the oil, try to located the leak and buy the new gaskets to fix the leak. If its a side cover gasket, or maybe an o-ring on the oil cap or o-ring on the oil filter cover.
Wipe the bike down or wash it down and look for the oil.

Look near the oil filter and see if oil is leaking, i have saw this several times where the oil filter is leaking, and oil blows down the whole underside of the bike.

The only other place the oil can go is in your airbox. Check to see if your engine crankcase breather hose is blowing by way to much oil and soaking your airfilter. If this is the case then you need to change your oil and filter.

93 PARK AVENUE OIL PRESSURE TO HIGH


If the oil filter was over torqued and the gasket was rolled off the filter's gasket grove would case the gasket to blow out. Case would be not lubricating the O ring gasket on the filter before installation would also case the gasket to come off the grove on the filter and the oil pressure pushing through the system would blow it out. Note: follow instructions on the oil filter prior to installations and check the gasket for leaks upon start up and warm up. Hope this help's.

Oil leak from oil filter


There is an "O" ring between the Oil filter housing and the adapter that will leak as well. Remove the oil filter and check inside of the housing for a large nut. Remove the nut and separate the adapter from the housing. Check the "o" ring between them and replace with new "o" ring. That's where mine is leaking and I've read a couple of others that had the same problem. The old ring started out "round" and has, over time, become flat. The new ring should start out with a flatter cross section that will seal better. Good luck! (Easy Fix, but finding the "o" ring may be a challenge. Check for the ring at the Honda Dealer as the Passport is the same basic vehicle.) Do it during the next oil change........

Oil leak


If it's leaking from the oil filter spacer.( the 2 inch metal ring that attaches to your block, and has two rubber hoses coming out of it, and your oil filter attaches to) There is an o-ring between the spacer and the block. Take off your oil filter, remove the oil filter stud with 1 3/16" socket( or metric equivalent) and the spacer will come off. I found all the auto parts stores around me said that the o-ring was a dealer item. I bought a FRAM PH3387A oil filter and removed the o-ring on that. It fit perfectly, snug down your oil filter stud to specs, then install your oil filter. Double check that the oil filter is not double gasketed, and your are fixed!
