Customer Question
Trying to add oil...

Trying to add oil to my 95 Saturn sc2 but it won't go in. It just pools in the filler and won't go down.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

April 2017

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 9-5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, thinking it might be pcv, but i took it off and it rattles

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Also leaking oil (which is why I was trying to add some) and coolant is also leaking

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Can you send a picture of where your adding oil to?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
i'm about 2 qts low. Oil just sits there and does not go down to the engine. is it possible it the pcv valve?
Saturn Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

It would slow it down but it wouldnt stop it completely, can you take the cap off and take a pic of inside the valve cover? even with the dipstick removed its not going in?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
it is going down very slowly now
Saturn Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

you may just have carbon buildup in the cover I would pull the cover and inspect for debris buildup

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
any other reasons for this problem?
Saturn Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

unless it about -40 and your using 20-50 or greater than I would suspect an issue with the valve cover itself, I bet there is some carbon and oil debris buildup with the oil burning like that

how do i fix that
Saturn Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

depending on how bad the deposits are, could just need a good engine cleaning or worse a new engine, some deposits get so bad the valve cover wont be able to be cleaned and it would just need to be replaced, the only way to know is to pull the cover, its not to bad on that model
