Well.... I jusr replaced the turbo on my 88 gl10 wagon (the one I decided not to sell) it was squealing and the whole bit..... Got one with 40k miles on it for $130 anyway.... 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!?

 

Any thoughts?

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.

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.
