Got a 91 loyale, 146k that is acting up. I was driving over the altamont pass here in Northern CA. I was on the boost and noticed a huge (I mean HUGE) cloud of smoke in the rearview. I was driving around 75mph passing a big rig going straight up hill too. I arrived in Stockton to the sound of lifters ticking away (loud). Pulled it over immediately, checked the oil and it was over 2qts low!!!!!! back window covered in an oily film.
well, 10 qts later I made it back to Berkeley added a can of engine restorer and now she is running up to par again. Drinking oil .5 qts per fill up What gives?
