2000 7.3 Burning tons of OIL

Like the title said my truck is burning lots of oil. Like 4qts in 100 miles. No leak or black smoke at all. We changed the turbo, and the injectors. We have virtually no blowby and not a damned drop of oil. Any help on this would be very useful.

For reference the truck has 254,000 miles on it.

Re: 2000 7.3 Burning tons of OIL

Check your fuel filter to see if it is black, sounds like an injector oring is leaking and sending the oil to through the fuel system

Just came back inside from replacing the fuel filter, not a drop of oil in there. Trust me if it were that i'd be doing hops of joy around the yard....

Sounds like bad injector orings. Open the fuel filter top. If it's black fuel you need injector orings
