1994 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Drinking Problem
September 03, 2010
One quart every 1000 miles. That's the rate of Project Miata's oil consumption.
Judging by the extra glossy block, accessories, splashpan, subframe and steering rack, some of it leaks out the cam seals. The rest is being burned off in the catalytic converter.
This engine is not long for this world.
