Puma Oil Consumption


Recommended Posts

Hi all

The last few months our puma started using lots of oil (0.5L per 500 miles)

No blue smoke out the back and no leaks i.e on drive , so I am starting to think breather


I got under it this eve and I see oil being pushed out via the dipstick,

some on the exhaust side of the block, and the top of the rocker cover

is moist around the filler cap.

Otherwise she is running fine, can anyone send me in the right direction


Cheers Bryan

1.4 btw

sounds like the PCV Valve or a pipe is blocked (Positive Crankcase Ventilation)this allows the crankcase to vent and if it gets blocked causes back pressure in the engine.
