oh no. how long has it been in this condition? Does it run okay? or like a guy sprintin' with a wooden leg? If it is a leaking fuel injector would not run right, but this is our only choice here, so stop the vehicle, and pull out and test the injectors to see which is jammed up...replace.~ and do an oil and filter change immediately~

Ditto, well said. Next case. ~~~~~~~~~~~ When a fuel injector is stuck open, the fuel will flood out. Gasoline will definitely get into the oil when this is the case. If the fuel pressure in your car is too high (above 7 psi) that may cause gasoline to get into the engine oil .

H25...so low? I thought we were talkin' 700 psi with aggressive auto shutoffs? am I dreamin?


7 psi = carb / 40-50 psi = indirect fuel injection / 4000 psi = direct fuel injection
