Also the engine is burning a bit of oil, like I just had to put 2 quarts in the freaking engine... any ideas on what this could be? Some of the people I've talked to have said maybe the PCV valve?

PVC is cheap and easy to replace. But if you see oil on the intake side of it then it maybe your problem. Also make sure it has the screen on it.

If its not that then you will need to do a compression and leak down test.

Well I'll be able to look at it this weekend when I don't have to drive to school, and I'm praying its the PVC valve because we finally got her running good haha and yeah it's like $4.10 here which angers me because last year around this time it was $3.50 or something like that

Oh and I'm pretty sure I know where the PVC valve is, I'd still like to be positive, right being my Trickflow intake by the firewall right?

That's sweet! Perfect power IMO. I'd like that for my Mach. Not too much to exceed my drivetrain.

Both the foxes I had would use a quart of oil by the next oil change, even the 92 I bought new. No smoking or anything like that. Hope the PCV change does it for ya.

My beef with the 302 is every one I've ever had the rear main will seep oil. Even with a brand new one. It's usually not enough to leave on the ground but you will see the residue where the tranny meets the motor. Mine always go through oil. It's not a whole lot but its noticeable after a thousand miles or so

My white 87 had the rear main trickle. It would leave about a quarter size spot overnight.

Do oil separators do anything to help on the pushrod 302's? It's like a must have on the 4.6's.

Sure, they will help remove any oil that gets past the PCV system and they are a must on forced induction engines.

Yup, hope so too. I can't say I really using much oil at all, but when I changed my PCV a few months ago, it was soaked in oil.

Did you replace or check & clean the screen too?
That's what they count on to remove most of the oil to keep it from getting sucked up into the intake. That's also why I think an oil separator is a good addition. It will catch what gets past the screen and PCV valve and keep it out of your intake.
