I got a problem with oil shooting out of the dip. tube. my tube wont stay in the block, just falls out. Is there a clip or something to hold these in? I have another 302 sitting in garage but cant seem to get that one's tube out... It's seems stuck and the one i'm using falls out HELP!
The tube has never been stuck in the block since i bout it. it was zip tied onto the brake system but will just fall out from normal driving. When i stick the tube in the block hole, it will wiggle around about an inch, its like its just hanging in there.
Sounds like someone has the wrong dipstick tube in there.Aslo a clogged pcv system will cause same thing as blowby but the pcv valve is just clogged.
Also I think the dipstick tubes are pressed into the block.You can try to pull hard on the tube and put some WD-40 on it.
