'94 Sundance Valdez Edition
I got a question that you maybe able to answer or at least put me in the right direction.
I have a 1994 Plymouth Sundance with a 2.5L motor (naturally aspirated) its also a 3sp auto with a 130K on it ( 70,000 miles or so)
I live up in the Arctic and the block heater cord is broken and I could not plug it in the other night. The Temp dropped to -40. I started the car, it started fine (well fine is a relative story at -40) but she fired up and idled nicely giving me issues running wise.
After a few minutes I began to smell oil. I looked under the hood and the oil was just shooting out of the right side back (passenger fire wall side) It was dark and I could not see it too well. I lost 5 liters of oil today and only drove it a very short distance, it sounds and runs great, but loses an amazing amount of oil, it just pours out from somewhere.
The top of the valve cover is wet as well, but the whole front of the motor is dry and clean, the worst part is the rear and the accessory side is soaking wet in oil.
What should I look at as a possible cause?
Any info is greatly appreciated!
Cheers from the Great White North!
