    04 RXP oil consumption.

    I'm going thru about a 1/2 quart of oil per tank of fuel. I found oil at the s/c inlet so I replaced the seal in the s/c. Still have the same oil consumption. Next I added a soda bottle catch can and no oil found in the catch can after I ran a tank of fuel thru the machine. I still had to add about 1/2 quart of oil. I see no external oil leaks. Any advice? Thanks in advance.

    If you replaced it with a OEM seal I have heard of them leaking again within a couple hours.

    I dont think 1/2 a quart could be from that though, unless it was leaking that bad, but i doubt it. You sure ur checking it right each time?

    Operating temp, idle 30 seconds, shut off, let sit for at least 30 seconds, then check. Maybe I'll try the Viton seal. Any other reason I would have a puddle of oil at the s/c intake?

    The only other reason I can think of is if your running your catch can tube back into your intake (like stock). But above you said u have a catch can installed.

    I did a comp.test. Cyl 1= 135 Cyl 2=135 Cyl 3=105. I talked to a dealer and he told me piston ring blow by past the bad rings into the crankcase and is blowing oil past the s/c seal. What's your thought on that?

    #3 is low. Almost 25 % off from 1 and 2.
    Rings/bore, be my guess.

    If it is rings/bore, then why do I have no oil in the catch can? That's what I don't understand.

    comp. seems to be down but, low compression/ bad rings wouldnt give you oil in the SC/ intake manifold like you said you were seeing...try the Viton SC seal
