An engine intake manifold plenum pan gasket oil leak may occur on some V-6 and V-8 style engines. The oil leak is internal to the engine so no external oil leakage will be present. Two symptoms of this oil leak condition may be present. The vehicle operator may experience an engine spark knock during acceleration and/or an increase in the amount of engine oil consumed by the engine. Inspect the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve. Shake the PCV valve to verify that the pintle inside of the PCV valve is free. Replace the PVC if the pintle is not free. If the intake manifold plenum pan gasket is leaking, an additional vacuum source will be created inside of the engine at the location of the pan gasket leakage.- Engine combustion blow-by gases, oil vapor, and air from the crankcase filter/breather may be drawn past the leaking pan gasket and into the intake manifold. In most cases when this condition occurs, an engine at idle will create the highest vacuum and lowest amount of engine blow-by. 1. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature. 2. Stop the engine. 3. Disconnect the breather hose from the air cleaner. 4. Attach a vacuum I pressure gauge to the end of the breather hose (Figure 1). 1 - VACUUM / PRESSURE GAUGE 2 - BREATHER HOSE 3 - VALVE COVER BREATHER HOSE PORT 5. Disconnect the PCV valve hose from the intake manifold. 6. Seal off the intake manifold PCV valve hose port opening. 7. Seal off the open end of the PCV valve hose (Figure 2). NOTE: DURING THIS DIAGNOSIS, IT WOULD BE NORMAL FOR THE ENGINE TO DEVELOP PRESSURE WITHIN THE ENGINE CRANKCASE. THIS IS DUE TO -THE NORMAL PROCESS OF. EXHAUST BLOW-BY- GASES- LEAKING PAST THE ENGINE PISTON RINGS AND ACCUMULATING IN THE ENGINE CRANKCASE. DO NOT ALLOW MORE THAN 3 PSI (20.7 kPa) OF PRESSURE TO BUILD WITHIN THE ENGINE WHEN PERFORMING THE FOLLOWING DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE. 8. Start the warmed engine and observe the vacuum gauge. 9. Allow the engine to idle for approximately 30 seconds. Do not allow more than 3psi (20.7 kPa) of pressure to develop in the engine crankcase. 10. If the attached vacuum I pressure gauge does not indicate that a vacuum is present in the engine crankcase, then the intake manifold plenum pan gasket is good and no further internal engine vacuum leak diagnosis is required. 11. If an internal vacuum leak is present then perform the Repair Procedure.

With the engine reassembled, inspect the coil and spark plug wires for proper routing. Refer to TSB 09-48-98 for additional assistance. 3. Start the engine and allow it to warm to normal engine operating temperature. 4. Decarbon the combustion chamber using Mopar Combustion Chamber Conditioner (p/n 04318001) per the instructions. NOTE: ALLOW THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER CLEANER TO SOAK INSIDE OF THE ENGINE FOR 2 TO 2.5 HOURS. NOTE: A SECOND APPLICATION OF THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER CONDITIONER MAY BE REQUIRED IF THERE WAS A LARGE QUANTITY OF OIL LEAKAGE PAST THE INTAKE PLENUM PAN GASKET. 5. Verify proper engine oil level.

The oil is being burned both in the cylinders and in the catalytic converter. Be aware that the emission controls will not be able to do that much longer and you will probably start to get fouled plugs, oxygen sensors and catalytic converter. When that happens, you get to rebuild the engine.

So in the UK, Ireland and other countries which use the same system, a quart is 40 fluid ounces, which is equal to 1.136 Ltr.
