How long can I go refilling oil?
Tell me if you've heard this story before, bought a " good looking jeep" only to run into problems immediately. My main issue now is the engine is burning oil like crazy and has a leak that isnt too bad, but will probably get worse. Long story short I'm putting oil in it on a regular basis. I am 12 mo's from an engine swap, here's the biggest laugher its my DD, my commute is roughly 10-12 miles so thats my only advantage. I see white smoke out of the exhaust when accelerating. When the oil is low I get a strong gas smell. Its a 2.5 and I really want a new engine and hate to put any $ in it, but it needs to last until next fall. Should I get it fixed or keep dumping oil in it. Its a 84 CJ7 2.5. I'm not at the point of DIY so I would have to pay for all repairs. Advice, opinions, jokes have at it!
