This is a head scratcher. I've got a gas 88 300E burning oil.
No biggie, seals and guides for sure because compression is good
on all six, good oil pressure as well. So it isn't rings.
300K, time to do seals/guides. Been there done that before.
I keep a close eye on the stick; oddly, oil level never seems to go down.
Now I've seen what coolant and oil mixing as a result of a bad head
gasket looks like - chocolate milky looking coolant, or visa versa,
coolant mixing with oil = milky looking oil. This isn't what's going
I know these 300E's pretty well. There is 100% no way trans fluid can find
a way into engine oil is there(?) since trans oil only goes to the rad to
be cooled, then back to the trans - engine oil doesn't, so there's no
union anywhere where oil/trans fluid can meet.
So what the heck is with this engine burning oil, yet the levels always
show full on the stick?
