I have a little bit of a problem and was hoping to get everyones input. I have a 1986 CJ7 with a rebuilt AMC 360 in it. The car has 160,000 on the clock and about 30-40K on the motor.
The jeep runs great, most of the time
, but I have been having issues with high levels of oil consumption. There are no apparent leaks and no smoke coming out. For instance since my last oil change I have driven a couple of hundred miles maybe and had to refill an entire quart.
Oil pump, timing cover are all brand spanking new pretty much and in terms of pressure I see a healthy 60+ PSI at start and around 15 at hot idle. At load im getting around 10 PSI per 1000 RPM.
Currently im running straight 40 oil, a little heavy for my taste, but I'm still curious to find out where all my oil is going
Any input would be greatly appreciated
