I sold a friend of mine my '85 300D (turbo) and now there is oil shooting out of the dipstick. The engine still runs strong and there doesn't seem to be any loss of power. I'd like to help him resolve the issue so any suggestions would be great!
Engine cold or when the engine has warmed up enough? Coz mine varies.If the oil level is correct, I would check for 'blow-by'. While the engine is running, remove the oil fill cap on the valve cover. You are checking for the amount of air (or smoke) that blows out of the fill hole. If everything is correct, you should get very little air coming out.
