    Question:Dipstick Is Coming Out When Driving??

    Got home after a drive popped the hood and oil everywhere,then noticed no dipstick its just gone.

    OK may be my fault,put in a spare stick all good.Nope same thing,but this time stick was hung up on
    hoses. :td:

    Slighty modified 2TG,is this a symptom of a known or common problem?

    Whit-- N.Y.

    Crankcase is pressurizing with no relief, check Pcv, or however your crankcase breathes

    Ya OK,I just got a hose from valve cover top down to the block breather under the intake,behind oil filter.Been this way for years.

    Pretty straightforward basic setup.Is there something else I could check?

    So it's recirculated not ventilated then it sounds like. It needs to vent somehow

    And it maybe that now your engine is wearing and you have some blow by forming an now crankcase pressure is a problem

    OK that all sounds about right.
