Eating ALOT of oil
OK, My truck has this issue with eating oil lately. I took a trip to Charlotte and back, probably 300 miles round trip last weekend. Went to start it today(havent driven it all week) and it wont move. Checked the oil level, and I am not even reading on the stick. A gallon and a half later, i am refilled.
There are no leaks that I can find. valley is dry, and no oil spots on the driveway. The truck isnt smoking when at idle, so its not giving me the impression that the turbo seals are bad. I just dont understand where the oil is going.
Had the rings and bearings replaced in motor 2 years ago, I dont think its from that. Any ideas?? Im stumped!
Heres another for you deep minded techies.....
When the truck sits for over a day, it takes some serious cranking time to fire. the HPOP is good, but the resivior seems to leak down. I checked the check valve right behind the HPOP, and its seating good. Was told it could be front cover, how does that affect it not starting?
Once its started and runs down the road a couple of miles, it starts up instantly the rest of the day. Only does it when it sits overnight or two. did notice that when nose is pointed in a slight downhill position, it fires up easier and with less cranking, but not like it should.
