All-

I was once told that if your losing oil - it can go 2 places. 1. Be burned off <or> 2. Leak out.

So - knowing this - I checked my oil today and noticed it low to the tune of 2 - 3 quarts. Strangely enough - no oil burn off coming out the rear *nor* any oil drips/puddles under the car where it parks.

Now I KNOW I put 5 Quarts in the pony before I left Dodge's house about 1500 miles ago.

Anyone know of any other ways for 2 - 3 quarts to vanish?

there is 3 places. the third is into your antifrezze....check your coolant to make sure it doens't have rainbows.

Did you put the ruber gaskets in yet? you might be leaking out the back of your valve covers and not notice it

And you might be getting just a little past the rings when you punch it and you just havne't noticed it out the tailpipe

*SCRIBBLING ON MY NOTEPAD FOR SATURDAY THINGS TO DO*

1. Check Antifreeze
2. Crawl under car look @ tranny bell housing
3. Finger my mufflers. *snicker - couldn't resist - sawry*
4. Pull valve covers and look at baffles
