Hello

Ron :

What year , make and model do you have?

Customer:

1973 DJ5C jeep

Customer:

yes

Ron :

In most cases, if you are pushing oil out of the dip stick, this usually means you have a broken piston ring.

Customer:

is there any other possibility

Ron :

Unfortunately no, this means you have compression going to the crankcases which will cause pressure and push oil out the dip stick tube. Not a good sign at all.
