I still am using a lot of oil! Like 1 quart every tank fillup! I don't see any smoke.. Is dosent leak..... Sooo what the heck!?

I'd blame baccaruda. He messes everything up.

I really have no clue what might cause this, I just can't miss a chance to pickon Andy.

check your PCV valve. If its bad, it could be stuck open and you'll be sucking oil into your intake.

skeet's being mean again!

check the oil return line under the turbo? maybe a clamp is loose.

take your car to a carwash with HOT water and clean all that nast crap out of there, so you can see where it's coming from when it leaks.

Skeet, go to your room, no Internet for you tonight! (LOL)

as for the oil leak, the DIY carwash place and spray the bejebus outta the engine bay is a wise choise.

Dont let the people that run the carwash see you, they flipped on me when I sprayed the engine. They don't like oil washed into their drains or on their concrete.

thats pretty daggone hypocritical of them when the dial has a selector for "engine washing" they do have a sign up that says:

Do not wash list:
Livestock trailers
open engine or transmission cases
Tankers (inside the tank)
Dumpbed trucks (the dumpbeds)
cement mixers
farm equipment
construction buckets on heavy equipment
asphault trucks or trailers
chemical transports

so yeah i use it for washing off the underside of the car reguallarly. That and on retunrs from the winter trips up north I bring ramps for washing the salt off the car.
