I'm helping a friend determine a most perplexing problem. She has a 1990 4 Dr SE 4WD. Say every couple hundred miles, she has to put a half-quart of oil in. There are no leaks that I can see (or that the few auto repair places could see either). Assume that we are inspecting the vehicle only when stationary. Every time she has taken it in, they tell her, "We don't see anything wrong, just keep putting oil in it!". I really can't accept that, so I'm hoping for some insight from the power's to be - this forum!
As the engine/seals look dry and there isn't any smoke coming out of the tail pipe (thinking blow-by in th engine), I am out of ideas. Hoping that these symptoms can tip someone off on the solution. Thanks for all your help!
