Where in the heck did it go???????
Like an amateur I put oil in the valve cover when it was off checking the valve lash. I put in over a quart and it never showed on the dip stick. When I started it smoked like I was spraying for mosquito's. I've asked several people what is going on and doesn't the oil drain into the crankcase when you do something like I did. I drained the crankcase today and no extra oil came out like I thought it would.
Now I'm wondering if I ran it out of oil or close to it and ate the rings up?
Bottom line. Where does the oil go when you pour it into the valve cover? If it does for sure go into the crankcase then I am definitely looking at a rebuild.
Dumb me. It never has had an oil problem before and it doesn't have that many hours or miles in it.
Thanks for any input.
