Pressurised oil coming out of the dipstick help please

check the oil level to make sure it isn't overfilled, also check the seal on the dipstick as their is pressure in many modern internal combustion engines and if the seal isn't good oil can come out. It is also possible that you have a blown head gasket, check water for oil and oil for water.

Oil pressure coming from dipstick

If you mean oil coming out of dipstick tube under pressure you have a major problem . The oil is not circulation around the engine and creating too much pressure. The pump is most likely still running but could have a blockage

My Astra holden has 2 dipsticks one i know is for oil level the other just a /14 inch from the oil dipstick is my question , what is the second dipstick for??

Might you have an automatic transmission?
Automatic transmissions have their own dipstick.
I don't know about Aussies, but here in the states, transmission fluid has red die added to it to prevent your mixing them, and to tell you whether it is engine oil or transmission fluid that is leaking.
If you mix them by mistake, you must drain them and put in the correct fluid, or suffer ruining the engine or transmission, which ever one has the wrong fluid.
Your oil light should not be coming on. That is a different problem.
Oh, yes. There may be a dipstick on the power steering pump it you have power steering, but it should be really small. (short)

How do I drain the oil on a Briggs & Stratton Troybilt 725 series 190cc push mower?

  • 1) Lay your mower on its side.

  • 2) Find a square bolt head protruding from under the mower engine. Adjust the crescent wrench to the size of the bolt. Turn the bolt counter-clockwise until the bolt comes out and oil begins to drain out.
  • 3) Grab the square-headed bolt and quickly lay the mower over the oil capture pan. Wait about a minute to allow all the old oil to drain out of the engine.

  • 4) Prop the mower back on its side and tighten the square-headed bolt back into the oil pan hole on the base of the mower engine.
  • 5) Return the mower to its upright position. Unscrew the oil dipstick. Read your owner's manual for the proper amount of oil to add. If you no longer have your manual then slowly add the oil to the engine by pouring it through the funnel and into the oil dipstick hole. It usually take 20 ounces to fill a small mower engine, so pour in some oil and check the oil level with the oil dipstick occasionally until the oil is to the FULL line on the oil dipstick. Screw the oil dipstick back in once you have enough oil in the mower engine.

    Check oil 2001 road king

    Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on later models unscrews, on earlier models it just pulls out with moderate force, on Softail and Sportster models the dipstick is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck and have nice day.

    No if you have filled the engine with (at least 5L) of oil it HAS to be showing a little on the dipstick. The indicator can come on with low oil pressure or sometimes they have a float in the oil pan indicating the vehicle is actually low on oil. I'm not sure where you put the oil into the engine or if the oil plug and filter were installed correctly, but the dipstick ONLY indicates the amount of oil actually in the oil pan. If its not on the dipstick then its not in the oil pan.

    How quarts of oil does a 1992 passat hold, no manual and has the wrong dipstick in it. The car was given to me. The oil light and alarm is driving me nuts. The dipstick that is in it is reading full but...

    That car takes 4.2 US quarts or 4 liters when you change the oil and filter. It takes 3.7 US quarts or 3.5 liters without the filter change.
    Change the oil and mark the dipstick with a file so you know where the full mark is. Also that engine has 2 oil pressure switchs on top of the oil filter housing. If they aren't connected or faulty the oil light will come on. Hope this helps.

    Oil level no good readings, how much oil till full

    generally when the light comes on in this fashion it indicates low oil. when you check the oil ... put the dipstick in one way... pull it out .. check the level... then turn the blade of the dipstick around so the other side is facing you... reinsert it into the hole and check it again... make sure the dipstick is completely seated in the pipe. i'm not sure i've ever heard of it but the baffle inside the oil pan may have broken (this prevents the oil sloshing front or back when you brake)

    Hi there

    You should not have oil leaking from the carby. If you have over filled it with oil, then it may be coming from the crankcase breather and then into the airbox, and appearing to come from the carby. If you have not over filled it, then the bike may have blowby problems with compression gasses passing the rings, and in a similar manner forcing oil out the crankcase breather. Not sure about the hole in the side of the cylinder... do you have a picture? Unless its pouring out, or gets worse, I would not be too worried. If you have over filled the oil, maybe time for an oil change to get the level right.
