Oil problem ! 91 Daytona

2041 Views 6 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  bamman
I have a completely rebuilt 2.5 91 Chrysler Daytona with a t2/t3 new turbo boosting at 15 psi. Everything has been rebuilt but now after it has been warmed up, I notice the car starts to burn oil, it has been broken in I have 8,000 kilo on meter. The oil never smells sweet, just oil. I notice that over a week or two's time the coolant level drops a bit and in 2 weeks I have to add about 200ml of oil. I am now running synthetic mobil 1. Was still smoking before non synthetic. Before the car got rebuilt than sat in a garage for awhile.
I am getting for compression. 126,127,130,131. I have my power still, no stalling issues. I have My ac disconnected. My gauge goes into 15 Vac, which is fine I think, No leaks there. It has Moly Rings, Aluminum head, venolia pistons and rods, new plugs, wires, inter cooler with piping, Larger inter cooler.
Ecu has been upgraded/Re programed, new belts, Timing, power steering pumps, relays etc.. Stock throttle bottle but with, Accufab Fuel Pressure Regulator, forge unos boost controller, hks ssq bov,

could this be a turbo issue? got from turbo, seals? or gasket? replaced ith mopar performance gasket and new head bolts.

input please?

How does the air box look? Does it look oily?

Only reason I ask is because on the 91 air box setup, blow by oil is re-circulated back to the crankcase. However, if you have a ton of blow by, it will pool up in the air box and eventually be sucked into the intake and burned.
I do not have a airbox. I have a 2.5. /3 inch intake. And no oil in the throttle body. It smokes a lot once it's warmed up when oil is flowing.
How is the PCV system? Also, when will it smoke? Does it smoke when it is warm at idle? Or does it smoke while driving it? If it does smoke while driving it, does it smoke upon acceleration? Does it smoke more noticeably after the engine goes into high vacuum (such as during downshifting, deceleration, or coasting) then smoke heavily upon acceleration?
It smokes when I shift, or when warm at idle, itll smoke for 2 to 3 min, than stops, than if I pin it.. and come to a stop.. it smokes.. so I was thinking maybe the turbo.
I was reading that the compressor seal may be gone,
Read the following:

Maybe your oil drainback is plugged or there may be a problem with the PCV system.
