Why is there noticeable suction into the crankcase when the dipstick is pulled with the engine running after replacing the intake manifold gasket?

It's supposed to do that.

The part you are referring to is called a "Flame Trap" - it is part of the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) system. When it fails it causes too much suction in the crankcase, usually resulting in a nasty squeal or howl at idle that goes away when you remove the oil filler cap. Replacing it requires removing the intake manifold. My dealer quoted $450.00 for the job ($100 for parts and 3 hours labor).

the oil dipstick is located between the exhaust manifold

You can tell when a manifold tuning valve is bad when oil is leaking through it. You also can tell by inserting the dipstick into the valve and seeing if oil comes out through the dipstick.

Not likely. In fact, the backyard mechanics' test for a blown head gasket is to drip some oil from the dipstick onto the (hot) manifold. If it bubbles, there's water in the crankcase. Another sign is white smoke in the exhaust.

The PCV valve is located in the camshaft cover,in the crankcase breather chamber or in the hose which connects the crankcase breather chamber to the intake manifold

To find the positive crankcase ventilation valve, look on the right bank of the engine. The valve is located beneath the intake manifold.

Positive Crankcase Ventilation Answer 2: The Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system reduces hydrocarbon emissions by scavenging crankcase vapors. It does this by circulating fresh air from the air cleaner through the crankcase, where it mixes with blow-by gases and is then rerouted through a PCV valve to the intake manifold. - Haynes Repair Manual #36071

No, but your crankcase should be vented anyway. If your getting coolant in the crankcase it is getting in from a bad head gasket or cracked head or bad intake manifold gaskets. If you don't fix it soon your engine will be toast.

engine block, piston, cylinder head, cylinder liner, camshaft, crankshaft, valves, crankcase/sump, inlet manifold, exhaust manifold, cylinder head cover

If there is oil coming from the exhaust manifold it generally indicates a bad valve stem seal or a worn out engine. (too much crankcase pressure)

Under the intake manifold next to the orange dipstick tube. on the 1.8t that is.

do i need to change the manifold when replacing thermostat

User Avatar

Possibly a hose is broken or disconnected on the crankcase ventilation system?Intake Manifold?

User Avatar

It can be a few things, turbo seals leaking faulty crankcase valve faulty bell pan.

User Avatar

air leak to inlet manifold check small hoses the back of the inlet manifold if the hose is blocked with carbon clean it or replace and clean crankcase breather all of it.

On the drivers side of the engine near the exhaust manifold.

That is a very COMMON PROBLEM WITH those engines. You need to replace the intake manifold gaskets to fix that problem.

For the 6 speed transmission the dipstick is located behind the radiator support, to the left of the air cleaner box. The dipstick is a round yellow plastic towards the bottom of the transmission. The exhaust manifold is slightly above it, so be careful not to burn yourself.

Intake manifold or exhaust? The complete job (parts and labor) is between $700-$900. depending on labor rates.

Remove the front exhaust manifold and remove the starter from the top.Pull the front exhast manifold and dipstick remove the 3 bolts with a 15mm socket or wrench pull the starter from the top
