Hi,
Iím new to this forum but could really use some advice.
My dipstick keeps popping out and oil spraying over the engine bay.
Itís an 20006 warrior with 126k .
Water is fine and it doesnít smoke from exhaust. I have changed oil and filter and run a cleaning agent through.
Also changed the o ring on dipstick.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks .

This is normally not good news, if you have changed the O/ring and it still comes out I would suggest you take it to some one who knows a bit about these trucks. It sounds like the crank casing is pressurising and blowing the dip stick out, this is a sign that the rings are letting compression past the rings and pressurising the crank. or Maybe a breather is blocked,
