Re: oil loss help please

Causing a vacume on upper side of engine.???hum
breathing problem??? (thinking out loud)
i once inherited a ford sierra v6 with the same problem. (yrs ago) compression seems ok so oil rings should be ok.????
Thinking back it was due to the lack of "oil changes" in the sierra and carbonised oil in the breather pipes and oil filler cap which also had a breather hole/mesh in it.
Dont forget at worst sonario worn crank/bottom end pressurizes. Hope this jogs ya memory.
Bulldog and friends will be along soon these guys should be able to help you out
Thanks turtleautos thanked for this post
