Clean the engine well and look for source of leak, one place is oil pressure sending unit. try Marvel Mystery Oil in fuel tank to help free sticking fuel gauge sending unit. Stuck spark plug is bad if in aluminum head. Spray PB Blaster around plug several times after engine is warm and let sit. I have had cross threaded and corroded plugs take out the threads in the head have had to insert helicoil to repair it. Try removing the plugs when the engine is hot, aluminum expands when hot.

1990 volvo 240 front oil leak cam and crankshaft oil seals? problems with home repair leaking 1 qt in 2 days, getting worse came on quick engine damage if oil level is maintained?


It is not a solution, but as long as there is oil in there, you are good. Just make sure you keep a good eye on it, just in case it gets work. Best wishes. If you need anything, let me know Bob. I am always here.

Northstar loses a qt of antifreeze every week. No drips leaks seen anywhere. Oil level is ok and water free.


Most likely the Northstar engine has a failed head gasket.These are notorious for this.Take to a reptuable shop and have vehicle block tested.If they dont know what you are talking about,go to another till you find one that does.

'01 Durango R/T slight oil consumption. 1/4 - 1/2 Qt a month. about every 500-1000miles. Is this normal is signs that gaskets need replaced. If so what gaskets?


Anything over 1 quart in 1000 miles might be considered excessive. It probably is not gaskets unless there is a leak. If there is a leak there might be a puddle of oil on the ground where you park it. If there is a puddle or drips of oil look at valve cover gaskets, oil pan gaskets, crankshaft seals , etc.

Engine makes a rapping noise at idle and under throttle.


The rapping noise makes me think that it might be a broken belt or even the lifters. It could be even your fan. Check the blades to se if they are bent or broken.

3.8engine using oil 1 qt week


Your pcv system is designed to handle normal amounts of internal crankcase pressures. If your rings are a bit worn, you will have higher internal pressure that can and will drive oil out through pcv or sometimes even the dipstick tube. This wear can be detected by doing a cylinder leakdown test (air is blown into each cylinder and the amount of pressure drop is measured) . If leakdown is greater than normal, you will then need to decide if it is worth it to do a ring replacement (major job), drive it as is and perhaps use a heavier oil, or sell it. If your engine uses any other venting for the crankcase, make sure that is not plugged up (I don't remember seeing anything lkie that on your engine though)
