Engine Cooling problem
2000 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 101K miles
My Windstar had a rough idle about 4 weeks ago. I had a tuneup and oil change done, but a couple of weeks later the oil light came on and I found that almost all the oil was gone. No leak on the garage floor, no oil underneath the engine, no sign of smoke out of the tail pipe.
I put in 2 quarts of oil 3 days ago, and I checked it again today and have already lost a quart.
I've had 2 mechanics look at it; both tell me they get a vacuum sensor code on the diagnostic machine. One guy says a valve cover kit will fix the problem but the other says I'm burning too much oil for it to be just the valve covers.
I don't know what to do. If I have the valve cover kit put on and it isn't the problem, I'm out $400 and I'm still burning oil.
have the same problem?
