It's not uncommon for these little engines to burn oil. Now granted, that is an excessive amount, the engine should be looked at and tested for worn rings and valve guides.

1988-1993 ford festiva leaking oil around the crank pulley... could the oil be coming out of timing chain seal... are could it be a the seal on the crank shaft.. if so would i need to removle the engine to...


This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,60d826b.gifca916fa.gifcb2cb5a.gif

How long does a big end bearing in a 2003 ford


Do you mean a main bearing/ If so it sounds as if it was bad before you bought it unless you over rev'd the motor. The main bearings other than from over reving do't usually go just like that.

Camry 1993 oil pump


No reason to toss the engine then. The oil pump drive sprocket is located behind the timing cover and he would have had to remove a lot of things to have definitively told you it was the pump leaking. Even then, you shouldn't have to replace it. It's far more likely to be a crank or cam seal that's leaking. Just the fact that he told you 1200 bucks would make me run, it's a 6.5 hour job to change the pump. I would suggest taking it somewhere else. Without knowing the service history, this is what I would do if it were my car: Since you have to remove the timing cover to get at the oil leak, I would take to a Toyota dealer and have them attack it as a timing belt job, tell them; "while you're in there, fix the oil leaks and replace the water pump". The labor for all of this is about 4.5 hours (~$450.) + parts (timing belt, water pump, seals (~$250). This gets you a whole bunch of maintenance for about 800 bucks. Now if you have had the waterpump and timing belt done already, you would be looking at 4 hrs labor and a handful of seals (~$30) to just fix the oil leaks.
Just out of curiosity, what part of the world are you in? My dollars relate to the Vancouver, Canada market.

hi, oil leaking down into the spark plugs causing problems, in the 4.6 the plugs go way down from the top and can get full of oil, pull one boot plug up and out inspect one at a time to see how bad the oil leak is. it needs gaskets but should be okay to go back and forth once, needs valve cover gaskets now..jm
