When you combine a large cylinder bore, high cylinder pressure through turbocharging, many hours of use and marginal maintenance, excessive blowby is the result. The leakage of any combustion gases, air, or pressure into the engine’s crankcase is considered blowby.

Can too much oil cause crankcase pressure?
Think of this as your engine's way of turning cream into whipped cream. No one wants whipped cream lubricating their engine. Also of concern, the extra oil creates excessive pressure inside your engine that will look for an escape through various gaskets and seals.
How do I lower my crankcase pressure?
This usually happens when the engine is under load or at high rpm, which is when pressure builds up quickly and needs to be relieved the most. The extreme solution to prevent all of this is to install a vacuum pump that continuously draws the pressure out of the crankcase.
Can overfilling oil cause PCV valve problems?
Overfilling oil can cause some to leak (be forced out) through the dipstick tube. Also, as i said above, can a problem with the PCV valve. The crankcase builds up pressure, which is relieved into the intake through the PCV system.
Engine Crankcase Pressure And Engine Oil Leaks
What happens if extra engine oil is overfilled?
When too much oil is added, the level in the oil pan becomes too high. That allows a fast-moving lobed rod called the crankshaft to come into contact with the oil and essentially aerate it. The result is a foamy, frothy substance that cannot properly lubricate the engine.
What causes too much crank case pressure?
If the engine is producing blow-by gases faster than the PCV system can dispose of them, an increasing surplus becomes trapped in the crankcase, causing excess pressure and, inevitably, oil leaks.
What happens if crankcase pressure is too high?
Increased pressure in the crankcase can cause blow-by when using a traditional push-in style breather, covering that trick engine compartment with a fine mist of fuel-oil.
1986 2.5L Xj High Crankcase Pressure !!
What should the crankcase pressure be?
2.5 to 6.
Will too much oil cause Blowby?
Overfilling the crankcase by half a quart or so is nowhere near enough to cause this problem. On older engines, excessive blow-by can be caused by piston rings that are all worn out and let too much stuff get by them. And that's a much more serious, and expensive, problem.
High Crankcase Pressure Dd13/Dd15/Dd16 (Relative Cylinder Compression Test)
What causes alot of Blowby?
The most common causes of blow-by are worn-out piston rings, worn pistons, or damaged cylinder walls. In some cases, you may mistake blocked crankcase ventilation for blow-by, so it's good the check for clogged crankcase ventilation before checking for blow-by. There are a few different things that could cause blow-by.
What will cause high crankcase pressure?
If the engine is producing blow-by gases faster than the PCV system can dispose of them, an increasing surplus becomes trapped in the crankcase, causing excess pressure and, inevitably, oil leaks. Even the most carefully sealed gaskets leak when confronted by rising internal crankcase pressure.
