SOURCE: Blowing oil on an 8HP craftsman snowblower

That is a breather tube, I can't picture the motor off the top of my head but that tube is either connected to the valve cover or if the tube seems to go up over the motor then that tube goes down into the motor. If it's the one thats connected to the valve cover then it's possible there is to much oil in the valve box. If it's the one that seems to go up over the top and in then if your just alittle to much over full you'll get oil out of that tube cause that tube sits alittle above the oil level.If your oil level is right on the line then I would run it for a bit then check the oil level. If the level is still good then you should be ok but keep an eye on it if it continues to blow oil out I would take it in to get looked at futher.

SOURCE: where is the hydro unit filler tube?

If you are talking about the hydrostatic drive, most of them are a sealed unit and not servicable by the consumer

SOURCE: 2000 dakota 4.7L. When first

I had the same vehicle. The 4.7 oil filler tube was a design defect. I don't think there was an official recall on it, but in later years, there was a change to the design. Dodge did say that it was not a problem though. As far as the valves chattering, I had the same thing. Just takes a while for the oil to flow back up. A good resource for all of this is www.dodgedakotas.com. Does require a small membership but the information is good.

There are no valves causing your problem. You have purely a plumbing isue. Some fuel stations pump fuel faster then the size and orientation of your filler tube will take. Don't be in such a rush when putting your 15 gallons in run the fuel nozel on slow.

2000 Buick Cen 3.1L no fuel will flow into tank nd what little that do mak a gurgling sound then start backing out nd spilling on ground. It's like pressure in tank is the cause of no flow of gas n


Usually the problem is a restriction in the vent tube in the filler pipe, or the vent on top of the tank. Covering the filler tube with the new style gas nozzle guards can also cause problems.
You have to be able to allow interior pressure to equalize with outside pressure while pumping fuel into the filler tube.

Why is oil spill on the floor and the exhaust tail pippe and the bus is smoking


You probably have a valve cover leak. Oil is running down the engine on to the exhaust system. It's very dangerous.
You probably need to have the valve cover gaskets replaced. Other things to also check: see that you PCV valve hose is not leaking, and that your transmission dipstick tube (if you have an automatic transmission) is not leaking. Oil coming out of either of those can also get on the exhaust system. Finally, you may have leaky front or read engine seals, or you may have leaking hydraulic transmission fluid spilling from cracked hoses or fittings.

I am guessing you may have put this question in the wrong category, you say hydraulic oil? This is the air compressor category, but all manuals for Clarke compressors can be found here

I got a 1995 camaro and just got the oil change and smoke is coming from under the hood.


Sounds to me like oil got spilled onto the engine and exhaust manifold. I had to get an oil filler extension to keep that from happening when I changed the oil in my '96. Otherwise; No matter how careful I was, some oil always got spilled and then it would be a few days of driving and some smoking before it all dried up.

Have you looked things over carefully under the bonnet?

Have you looked things over carefully under the bonnet for evidence of a BP event.. Oops! I mean evidence of an oil spell?

I can not locate my car gear fluid


If the vehicle is an automatic, the oil check/ filler plug is on the bottom of the gearbox sump. To check oil level jack vehicle up, keeping it level. Start vehicle from cold and remove 17mm allen key plug on bottom of sump. Oil should just start spilling from aperture at an oil temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. If not top up fluid until it does start spilling. Temperature important as oil expands as it heats up.
