I am having some oil come out of the dipstick tube on my car. A friend is having some similar probs with his car. Could you all suggest some things to check? We have checked several things already, but we may have overlooked something. I was kinda hoping to put together a "checklist" of suggestions from you guys.
Thanks as always,
Jeremy

Are you running a PCV? Are your valvecovers vented?

You can do a leak down test to check the condition of the rings. If you can hear/feel compressed air comming from the dipstick tube, you've got tired out piston rings, or a hole in a piston

Possibly the squirrel has enphazema and is breathing to hard in the crank case.

Okay, put that in terms a '68 owner can understand. I think the '65-'66's have squirrels in them, the '68's have a mongoose!

I've never seen one get a squirrel, but I have seen one get a cobra!

I'd start with the PCV. Make sure its not clogged up. It should rattle when you shake it. If its gunked up you can clean it with gumout carb cleaner. Do you have too much oil in the engine? (Wont hurt to check). After that, put a can of Restore in the oil and see what that does for you.
