Re: Need info

Assuming you're running injectors: Put a rail pressure gauge on and watch the 'hold' pressure. If you're injectors are leaking, there's only one place for the gas to go and that's into your cylinders, past the rings and into the pan.

This is actually a safety feature. Instead of the fuel leaking all over your engine and causing a engine fire it goes into your oil. You need to fix this ASAP! Your oil is being diluted and oil pressure drops.

Re: Need info

You need to do the fuel rail pressure hold test and see what side is leaking and replace injectors as required. The cost $$$ will vary.

Re: Need info

If you're not sure how to do it try to find a good shop at a good price. If you continue to drive it that way the fuel is diluting your oil and you will burn up bearings on your crank shaft.
