hey guys,
i need some advice asap! when i first bought my Gen1 econoline i drove it for 4 hours to get it home the next morning it dumped most of its oil out as i tried to start it up, this basically came out of the top of the filter which was distorted! originally i put this down to a weak filter however roll forward several months and last weekend we went away, 3 hours drive perfect motoring the same on the return journey 2 days later!

however last night the first time i have attempted to drive it since then it decided to do the same thing and dump its oil across our shared carpark! what could be causing this? i know i could just change the filter and it will probably sort me out for a while but i need to fix the problem!

any idea's greatly appreciated!
