Maybe this has happened to some of you. Where you grab an pull the dip stick t check your oil, I've got oil blowing out of the top.

Right at the handle, where it curls over into the question mark handle.
Now I know these motors make a lot of internal pressure, but what can cause this to be happening??????

I wipe down the motor, drive it, oil all over it again.
An I see the puff of hot oil coming out if the hood vent, just a puff of smoke, and It blows out about a quart every two weeks.

Suggestions?
Blocked PCV?

Thinking about a catch can system ? Loosing oil, and oil ain't cheap.



Attached pic, see the handle, right at the end of the curl, oil is just literally leaking out.

Well, I know the turbo needs rebuilding as it sat for 4 1/2 years, but the motor has less than 4000 miles on that build. I know the seals in the turbo are shot, but it still pulls hard. PCV clogged?

Let me explain it like this, I'm like Tom Cruise in Days of Thunder, I don't know shit about cars, an my pride don't get in the way of me admitting that. Now leak down, compression, have no clue how or even to try an attempt on that, as I don't have any kinda tools to try.

GLHS727, u r in Spring, TX, not to far from me, can I schedule some dyno an testing time at FWD Perf. ???? Cost for some test an tune, because honestly I hate working on this car. I just wanna drive it, I've spent more time wrenching than actually driving.

compression test is easy as pullin spark plugs

any auto parts outlet will have a compression tester - it's not goin to be expensive
20 - 40 bucks should get you a good one - just don't buy a push in one with the rubber tip , get a threadded one that fits your spark plug holes

start cylinder 1 , remove plug install tester , crank engine without coil hooked up , read / record gauge reading - repete for accuracy
then move on to cylinder 2 and so on and so on

compare numbers across the engine and you'll know if you have a dead cylinder

you are looking at $300-400 for a dyno tune, but a stage cal is only between $125-200 depending on year of car. But we wouldn't be putting your car on the dyno with it blowing oil out the dipstick. We would do a compression/leak down test first and a few other diagnostics to make sure the motor was healthy enough before tuning. We could do the diagnostics in less than an hour so if you want to bring the car it and have us look at it, let me know

Before you go tearing things down and spending a chunk of change, check your breather. Your PVC system could be stopped up. In town, the PCV valve goes into the base of your carbretor/throttle body assembly. When engine speed picks up, there is too much in the way of vapor for this so it is vented into your breather. I've seen this a bunch of times through the years and only once was it blow by on the rings. How much oil is in your air filter box?

I had been so busy with work, I had no time to check, did that an hour ago. not only did I completely clean out the airbox, but made my own homemade oil catch can system, to much oil was being blown through the system.
But, the original t1 turbo pulls its ass off, but its tired, I hope to have a new one soon from FWDP. hopefully it will last long enough till I pay off the IROC I'm buying, lol
