2007 Ford Ranger, 2.3.Manual. loss of power up hills, starting to stall in neutral while rolling, going through 1 quart of oil every 400 miles. PCV valve grommet is gone, and PCV has oil in it. Could it be that I am losing oil through the exhaust
? (clean under carriage, no leaks) Would this also cause loss of power?
JA: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?
Customer: original gaskets, car has around 175,000. which hoses?
JA: Are you fixing your Ranger yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes, fixing myself. order new pcv valve, grommet and clip. need to install.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: don't think so. I can hear small rattling at certain rpm through the floor shifter.
