Another Oil Consumption Question
Well from reading the previous post I can assume that it's a very bad thing that my 87 Samurai burns almost a full quart of oil between every other fill-up eh? It is a little weak on the freeway, but I always thought that it was just due to the sucky carb. It doesn't blow blue smoke at all... in fact it seems to be doing just fine. I've only had it for one year and I'm pretty sure that the previos owner(s) didn't baby it like I do. Heck...my radio got stolen right after I bought it and now sometimes I actually prefer to listen to the motor run, just so I can tell if something needs to be checked out on it. I love the little thing. Anyways I digress... it has about 140K miles on it, so oil consumption would be expected, but just not this much, I guess. Does this give me an excuse to start looking for a 1.6L instead of just a new carb? Give me some opinions here. Thanks.
