    What is with my dipstick on my th350? Every time I drive my truck the dipstick pops out a inch or so and spits a little fluid out. I thought it was building pressure because the fluid was too high, but the level is fine hot and cold. Could my filter be a little clogged or something? What causes this? Thanks.

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.

    If your PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventalation) valve is cloged it can cause the preasure to build up and pop the dip stick out. For how cheep and easy the are might as well try it.

    I'm talking about the tranny dipstick. Can the PCV cause the tranny dipstick to pop out? Its new anyways. Any other suggestions.

    You might want to check the transmission vent. The tube or vent top might be plugged. There is some air in the transmission, so it is normal for pressure inside it to change as the temperature changes

    Sorry I missed the "th" in front of the "350". PCV has nothing to do w/ trans.
