SOURCE: consume too much gas after replacing spar plugs, wires, cap

were the plugs properly gapped?? If it was, I would recommend checking the distributor for proper adjustment, timing may be off. Have this checked by a mechanic. Hopefully this helps

SOURCE: 1994 Mazda B3000 V6 engine

Failure of head gasket between cylinder head and block.

Because oil pressure is higher than coolant pressure, oil will creep across poor sealing area of head gasket from the oil riser drilling that feeds the cylinder heads cam assembly's.

Worst case scenario would be a cracked cylinder head/s. No totally unheard of but rare.

Continued oiling of the coolant system will rot out the coolant hoses from the inside to the point they will burst.

Due to the year of this engine it may be prudent to find a used engine with less miles and swap it out.

Type of engine oil?1994 plymouth voyager v6

API SG or SG/CD look on the Cap or Label of the Oil Container (Quart, Gallon, or 5 Quarts).
10W 30 for Winter.
10W 40 for Summer.
V6 3.0L gets 4.0-quarts.
V6 3.3L and 3.8L gets 4.5 quarts.
Always change Oil Filter with the Oil Change.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me at!

to give more room - the motor cover can be taken off by unscrewing oil cap out of front valve cover - reach across or lay across motor to reach rear plugs
