Engine Mechanical problem
1988 Mazda b2200 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 15100 miles
Recently experienced that my engine was losing about a 1 Qt of oil after a short 20 mile drive. Discovered that oil was collecting in the air filter breather cap. In fact so much oil that it was being feed to the exhaust line through the air filter breather cap (reed valves in breather controls exhaust gas remixing). Need to know what could cause such a large amount of oil to end up in the air filter. Since 140,000 miles the engine has used 1 Qt of oil every 2,500 miles. This was acceptable for a low use weekend lawn and garden delivery truck. But now I fear the engine has serious damage that obviously can not be ignored. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
