did the search still have oil burning questions

Hi all, I did the search and still have oil burning questions,
I just read a post/question from the Capn and I checked/ well replaced the PVC valve

I have 103K miles on my samurai, and have been running Mobil 1 synthetic since about 40K miles,
Lately I have been going through 2quarts ever 400 to 600 miles depending on my cars mood.
it Runs great, has full power, no fuel hesitations, great gas mileage, and No leaking, fact there is
no oil anywhere outside on anything, that is how clean the darn thing is.

I read from other people on this board that if the Fuel pump is having problems, it will blow oil.
Is this internally, like blowing it into the eng to be burned.

I dont have any smoke at all, but the exaust is stinky more than ususal.

Please give any more input.

Just so you all know, I did search oil consumption, and oil burning.
lot of good input, but still have questions.

good suggestion all to use the search, I did not even see it.

Yes, a fuel pump can leak oil internally, mixing it with the gas.
I don't think I caught your last post, but I'm assuming you've got good compression??

Re: did the search still have oil burning questions

I have not checked the compression, I am assuming, that since my engine performance has not changed and is
running great, and getting 24 miles per gallon, that I have good compression.
Is there a inexpensive and easy way to check the compression?

whats a good way to check the fuel pump?
and what does one cost? or what does it cost to check it out.
I am just in a $$ bind for the next couple of months.
seems to be this way every year.

any other ideas of things I can check out?
No smoke
No loss of power
None in the water
using 2 quarts every 400-600 miles

thanks

Re: did the search still have oil burning questions

It is more common for the fuel pump to leak oil out the vent tube. You can check that by duct taping a 20 oz plastic coke bottle to the fuel pump under the vent tube in the back. It will usually leak oil like the Exxon Valdez when that is the problem, so you should notice SOME fresh oil on the passenger side and on the side of the tranny. It doesn't leak there when not running so it does not necessarily leave a large puddle when you are parked.
I suspected that was where mine was leaking because I had heard about this, but it was not as apparent from looking at it as you might think. I had about 3 inches of oil in the coke bottle after about 40 miles. There will be NONE if this is not the problem.

Re: did the search still have oil burning questions

Brown29,
I'll look at it when I get off work, but I was just under the thing looking at it last night and Saw NO
oil deposits, as far as oil stuff, this is one clean rig.
as far as mud and dirt, Not that clean.
but no muddy oil stuff.
I will, just to check it out, put a bottle on the vent.

any more Ideas welcome, I appreciate any feedback.

One more question, if the fuel pump is going out and letting oil mix with the gas,
wouldn't fuel get into the crank case?
hopefully not a stupid question.

Brown,
No Oil blowing out the vent port on the pump.
checked this out this weekend.

any more Ideas?

Do you think the valves would allow that much oil to burn?
valve guides?

I am still looking for a pressure gage.
thanks

Re: did the search still have oil burning questions

smell your dipstick. if it smells like gas (wich its shouldnt) then its prolly fuel pump. But i know if oil smells like gas, thats not good.
