View Full Version : Going through Oil

I just replaced all the seals on my 97 RR 4.6 engine. Since then I have been burning more then I should. Oil light when on with only going a 1,000 miles. Any thoughts? Thank You.

Are you burning it or leaking it?

If burning you should see your Cats clog up soon, if leaking it... I would say time to find the leak. Just because all the seals have been replaced doesn't mean one isn't leaking.

No it's not leaking. I took it back for inspection, they didn't find anything.

If your burning... valve seals or piston ring issues.

check your breather valve, also change your air filter to a high quality air filter. My son had a clogged up breather valve on his SUV, was burning oil rapidly. After fixing the problem, burning stopped, power restored.

Thank You. I don't see any gray smoke coming out of the tail pipe. I hope it's just Breather valve.

What is a breather valve?
