Have you ever heard of this happening on our 2.2's ?
I don't know what car the poster quoted below was speaking about but it made me wonder can the same thing happen with the mechanical fuel pumps on the 1980's Dodge & Chrysler 2.2 L. 4 cylinder vehicles with carburetors?
"Older car? I had a car once burning oil due to a bad mechanical fuel pump literally pumping oil and fuel into the cylinders burning a gasoline oil mix, after new rings, new heads and still fouling plugs and burning a quart every 100 miles (yes you read that right) and old school mechanic in broken English told me (without seeing the car) "brokeeen fuela pumpa" well guess what? Those old school guys do know a thing or two, a ruptured diaphragm was sucking oil and fuel and doing a nice mix in the fuel line and going right into the carburetor."
