1983 300SD Turbo Diesel
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
Hi everyone. Does anyone have any ideas on why I started going through so much oil on my 83 300SD? I do have a small drip drip from the oil drain plug that I need to get on but we're talking a teaspoon per day. I've added 5 quarts in the past 6 weeks. Please do not say the bent rods thing.. I don't want to think about that yet. It doesn't smoke at all (other than the little bit at cold start up) and runs like a dream. Only 121k miles. Could the air filter/oil return have anything to do with it? Its been a busy summer and I'm going to get on this problem this weekend. Thanks for any ideas.
