Russ Austin replied to mark zimmerman's discussion Oil leaking out of oil cap breather
"This is caused by excessive piston blow by. The piston rings are worn allowing too much gas to blow by the rings.  Check that the PCV valve is sucking, and that oil fill cap is allowing air to be drawn in.  After that, try the sock…"

And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment
