Question about Dodge Caravan
Oil out the tailpipe is definitely oil control rings and all the rings on the pistons simply worn out from high mileage.If keeping the vehicle,a remanufactured engine would be the best choice,with a good warranty.A used engine is also a possibility,but sometimes hit or miss.A rebuild would consist of about the same cost as a remanufactured unit.To correct only the oil problem would consist of a complete disassembly of the engine.The block would have to be taken to a machine shop and overbore the cylinders whatever is needed,.020"-.040",and purchase new pistons corresponding to the overbore,and all new rings.Top compression ring,secondary compression ring,both oil control rings,and the oil control expander.This will correct the oil out the tailpipe,but you are at a full on rebuild at that stage.
