I have a 1993 Topaz / Tempo 4 cylinder engine. I was told the front engine
seal was leaking, paid $300 to get it installed.
However my car is still using about 5 quarts of oil per tank of gas. I
took it back to the mechanic. The people told me there was an internal
problem causing blowby. The oil is leaking out the back of the engine.
If I have blowby doen't that mean the oil is getting into the cylanders?
Shouldn't I see tons of blue smoke.
They claim there is a hose coming out of the engine that should go to the
air cleaner where the oil is supose to go, however it is not hooked up
causing the oil to fall on the ground and not get burned.
Something does not sound right to me.
Could this be a bad head gasket? (Not using anti-freeze).
