Definitely check out your PCV, etc. When my plenum started to go (just a small leak), I was burning a quart in 3 - 4k miles, which dropped dramatically after doing the plenum.
oh wow i thought it was normal for my high miles thanks . shes got 302k miles now and i believe the plenum is in stock condition so thats going to be repaired this winter i should grab a manifold from the j/y and port it before i start the fix

q.q. is there another fix besides the hughes kit that you know of ? im going about this on a budget and im getting close to the red on maintenance for the season

Poke around ebay and you might find some. You've got almost double the mileage I've got, so burning somewhat more than I do would be fairly normal. However, more than a quart in 3k would be enough to worry me.

I wouldn't get a new manifold, get a new plenum plate and a new gasket for it and you should be good to go.

All of your belt-driven things failed at once? Sounds like a belt to me.

Either worn belt, needs the tensioner tightened, or the tensioner is bad.

Yep. I was constantly chasing them off the mountain at my old house. Another guy had his cat converter Sawzall'd off, parked on the side of the road while they walked down to the Rocky Broad River. Eventually it catches up to the bastards. Couple of years ago in the news in WNC some guy got electrocuted trying to steal a bunch of copper wire or something from a highway light.
Up here in Cleveland (ugh) now you drive through the ghetto on the east side and most of the abandoned houses have "NO COPPER" spray painted on the front to try to keep the scrappers out. Other houses have the aluminum siding stripped off about as high as a cracked can reach.
Makes me glad to live a decent distance from the city!

Don't be afraid to call it what it is. Here, vacant homes in Las Vegas will have entire a/c units stolen because they are on a concrete slab on the ground. It's ridiculous.
