    I have a 1988 240DL volvo.

    Suddenly I am having a problem with oil leaking out the oil
    filler opening. I bought a new cap thniking it was an old gasket problem.

    it is still leaking.

    So I guess there must be a value of some sort that is plugged and causing
    pressure in the crackcase.

    Anyone have an idea and have seen this problem before?

    TIA

    My guess is that either the flame trap is plugged, increasing crank case
    pressure, or that some of the oil passages are plugged. The former is
    easy (if a bit grubby) to fix, the latter could require significant
    disassembly.
