SOunds like the rings on the pistons are bad. The rings are not sealing and the pressure in the combustion chamber is blowing by the rings and causing pressure in the crankcase thus blowing oil out the filler tube. You may, I said may be able to eliminate some of it by buying a can of RESTORE.........and adding it with your next oil change. I have never had a an engine with severely worn rings but this stuff is supposed to help seal the rings against the cylinder walls.............and maybe buy you some time. It's less than 10.00 You will need to drive it and see if it may or may not depending on how bad the rings are. If the rings are too bad, you are looking at an engine tear down.......

How do you check transmission fluid in Taurus?

Drive the car for about 15 minutes to heat (and thus expand) the automatic transmission fluid (ATF), then park the car on level ground, but leave it running. Remove the ATF dipstick and check the level. You need to keep the engine and transmission running and warm when you're checking the ATF level because the fluid level mark on the ATF dipstick is calibrated for a warm, running condition, and because a significant amount of ATF will be in the torque converter only while the engine is running. If you measure ATF level while the engine isn't running, you'll get an inaccurately high reading because the ATF will drain out of the torque converter and go into the transmission pan, which is where the tip of the dipstick is located.

How do you check transmission fluid in a 2006 Chrysler 300?

#1 start the engine #2 let engine run for 15 minutes #3 with engine running, pull the dipstick out (NOT the one that says "engine" on it) #4 wipe the dipstick (the one you pulled out of the engine, not the helper) #5 reinsert the dipstick into the hole you just pulled it out from #6 with the engine running, pull the dipstick out ( no, this is not a misprint) #7 look at the dipstick ( the one from the car), you will see either a crosshatch area or two small holes about a half inch apart, the fluid should be in the middle of these areas (please don't cheat by turning the dipstick upside down, after all, its Your car not mines). Most likely your 300 does not have a transmission dipstick and you will have to take it to the dealer to have the fluid level checked.

pull out the dipstick, put a small funnel into the dipstick tube and add until its between the hot and cold marks on the dipstick with the engine running. if you've drained the fluid, start by adding 4 quarts of dexronII, check the level(again, with the engine running) and add more as necessary to get the level between hot and cold.

How do you check transmission fluid on a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.8?

Open the hood, and look for the engine oil dipstick. Then look for another dipstick somewhere in the engine compartment. It will probably be to the right of the engine dipstick, and might be on the back side of the engine/transmission assembly. With the transmission in 'park' or 'neutral' and the engine running, check the fluid level. If the fluid is low, it is added through the dipstick tube, which requires a special, long neck funnel. Be very careful not to overfill the transmission.
