I have been noticing something - directly related, but not exact topic .....
- I thought I was just leaking oil, but the last tip I brought it up to 'Full' on the Dipstick -
I noticed several hours later, on a cross-state drive, that it looks like that last quart of oil just blew out through the rear, front tubes and around the filler cap. It is running down the head-cover sort of like the flame paint-jobs they did in the 1950's and '60s. (Streaming toward the back - prob from wind, fan, etc)
ALSO -- this happens when I fill it above the 'low' mark - actually it seems to prefer being a little below the 'Low' mark on the Dipstick.
Note: My transmission / transfer-case mount cross-member is 1" lower than stock.
SO, WTF is going on?
- Is this common when lowering the trans mount (for lift)
- Do I have the wrong Dipstick tube?
- Do I have something worse?
- What question should I be asking?
