IIRC shouldn't there be an O ring near the top of stick? Bingo's not here so can't check mine. If there is an O ring is it old & perished or there at all? Is the dipstick tube mishapen? Do you have inreased crankcase pressure?

i will remove the cover today, to see if this makes a difference, what would cause to much pressure?
