How much oil do you burn through?
I don't know what is up with my truck, but lately it is just drinking oil. I don't know where it's going.
It has reman'd heads, new head gaskets, new oil pan and gasket, front and rear main seals, etc..
Haven't owned the truck long, so I don't know it's history..Have only driven it after most of the work. It didn't seem to burn through this much up until right before the oil pan rusted out and started leaking - So I assumed that's where the oil was going..But now that that's fixed, it's still drinking a ton of oil.
Had the dipstick full, drove about 4 hours (less than a tank of gas), and it's towards the low end of the safe zone on the dipstick. Probably went through nearly a quart I'd guess.
I crawled all over under the truck and didn't see any leaks.. I'll check again when the weather clears.. When I bought the truck it had oil in the coolant, so I did the heads/headgaskets. No oil in the coolant since then, that I can find.
Is it possible this motor just burns this much oil? It's not smokey at all..So I doubt that's whats happening..Just wondering if anyone else goes through this much oil and what they think of it. I've owned a lot of cars, and none of them guzzled this much oil.
I imagine it's just leaking somewhere new, and I haven't spotted it yet.. At least I hope that's what's happening. Hopefully something that's easy to fix.
