Oil Consumption

Since I change my EGR cooler and Oil cooler, I have been consuming about a qt of oil every 300 miles. I originally thought that it was to replace the voids that may have been emptied from doing the work, but the more that I drove the more that it would smoke a light bluish smoke. Now, about 1k miles later, I pulled the intake off and looked thinking that the CCV may be the issue but that was not it. There was just a light residue on the CCV exchange tube. Next I took off the CAC tube exiting the turbo and BINGO - saturated with oil. So I ordered the rebuild kit from Gpop and got started pulling the turbo today. It came apart very easy and will put the kit in it tomorrow and should be back on the road tomorrow afternoon.

Do I miss my Ford's? Nope
