  12. High pressure and oil coming from dipstick hole and oil filler cap.

    Hi! I have a 2001 Clio 1.2 8v D7F746, and oil and air coming from oil filler cap and the dipstick cap. I measured cylinder pressure, all of them are 190 PSI dry, although I didn't do a wet test. Afaik this engine doesn't have a pcv valve, so the crankcase breather can't be the problem. Any ideas?
