Question about 1990 Toyota Camry
I have oil loss but the car runs great. If there was a PCV valve, I would assume it was plugged. Any suggestion on how to find and correct the oil loss.
Considering the age of the car I'm guessing failure of the main seals or piston rings. Failing piston rings would give the exhaust a blue tinge and be most noticable when reving the engine in neutral (park). It would also show up big time during an emissions test. Leaking main seals would show up as oil all over the lower parts of the engine and transmission. If your valve cover(s) are leaking it will make it difficult to determine where the oil is coming from.
I have a '90 Camry and have leaking main seals. I'm down almost two quarts each oil change if I don't stay on top of it. Not much to do in either case but rebuild the engine ($$$$$). Hope this helps.
