Late 99' PSD Burning Tons of Oil! Help Please.
Im hoping I can get some advise in the right direction. Im leaning hevily towards turbo seal(s) but Id llike to hear some opinions so I dont jump to conclusion.
My 99 F-250 just started burning TONS of oil a couple days ago. I didn't realize how bad it really was until the thing died because it ran itself so low on oil it couldn't feed the HPOP to fire the injectors! It ate 11 quarts in 20sih miles! Odd thing was that I topped it back off to get it home and for about 4 miles it wasn't burning ANYTHING! then it just started again. It fixed itself for a few miles? Well, its home now and I need to fix this thing.
Intercooler pipes are loaded with oil BUT my friends 02' PSD doesn't use hardly any oil in 10K and its pipes are loaded too. I assuming this is just from the crank vent setup. Yes its smoking blue, bad. The truck does have over 200K on it but I do not know if this turbo is original.. Looks to be though. The truck is bone stock, zero modifications. Turbo still spools and truck makes good power besides the heavy oil consumption. Starts rough not and won't let you throttle it up for a few minutes... Never did that either. Went from perfect to this.. Help please.
Short history.. Until this, the truck used ZERO oil, starts immediatly, ran perfect, got 17 city 20 highway MPG. No issues and always smooth sailing. Good power.
