Re: I mean a quart a WEEK!
check your fuel pump. i see on your profile you have a 87
the vent tube not hooked to anything is where they leak
when starting to go bad. you can wire ty a baggie to the
tube and drive around awhile and tell. happened to me on a
88 replaced all front seals and timing belt still had a leak
was about to pull engine had less than 10,000 on rebuild was
fuelpump leak only.
