Oil overpressure as indicated on a pressure gauge or overpressure as if it is blowing the oil filter apart ??


You don't give any info on car. how many miles? how old is the oil? what weight is the oil? did you overfill it? are you using major brand filter, ie: Fram, etc.? Please answer these for more help.
