The head came off my car to address once and for all my oil loss issue i've been having.
Can timing cause the car to run overly rich? This is not for sure, but the shop working on my car reported that crank timing was off 3 degrees and the cam was off by a tooth.
The machine shop says there's way too much fuel going into the motor. The exhaust ports have crazy amounts of carbon in them, thus, causing the exhaust valve stem seals to leak because of the gas thinning the oil.
How the heck did it not bend the valves, still get over 300 miles to a tank, and put down 175whp?
This is what i'm being told. Input?
