Default Air from the Dipstick tube!?!?

So this weekend i started my PT let it warm up. Made it like 1/4 mile away and there was an ungodly loud whine, like a belt, or a loose pullie some where. Drove it back home and parked it. no codes nothing. Looked at it yesterday and nothing, then it warmed up and screaming began. I wanted to check the oil for foam and it went poof air came out and the whining stopped !!! put the dipstick in and whin whin whin pull the dipstick and air lets out and no whining !!! idk but the dipstick pressure release must be shot. lol

Check your PCV valve and hoses and the breather hose and filter at your air box. While you are there clean it! If the air pressure continues then seek someone that can do a compression test and is necessary a cylinder leak down test. Nothing to get worried about at this time!
Not sure what the model PT you have but if you have an aluminum valve cover with Turbo engine and twist in PCV valve on the top passenger side of the engine I recommend getting an AIRTEX PCV valve. They proved through random pressure testing better then all other including OEM.

no serious response from me... but on a funny note

they commonly pop OUT on DSM's making high boost, so someone came up with this "fix":
STM: SPRUNG OIL DIPSTICK | 90-99 DSM

This weather is not good for auto repair! And have to check the pcv valve and hose. I was thinking i have about 130k and i think i should just do the head gasket timing belt and timing componets and water pump. And then check the pcv valve and tube just so i have all the issues covered.
