I don't believe your squirters are your problem,they are used for cooling,how many miles on your engine,and type of driving.Start with a compression check on your cylinders and see if you have a problem, also check your spark plugs to see there condition,is there oil going to your throttle body,just a few things to narrow down what might be the cause of your oil usage, also check for leaks.

No fluid leaks 170 compression on all cylinders all of the plugs had oil on threads, but nothing on the tip. Driving conditions are normal occasionaly i get on it not often. Consuming more than a quart every 1000 miles. Deleted pcv hoses.

I did some checking on the Coyote engine for oil usage,one thing you might want to check,is what they called in the old days PCV valve not sure what the new term is,but if it is restricted it can cause oil usage.This is all I could find after the checks you did and the info you gave me. Good luck and keep me posted.

Let me understand this correctly. You said you deleted the PCV hoses? So is the PCV valve venting to atmoshere? Or do you have that plugged off as well? If you have deleted the PCV valve, that right there could be your problem. The whole purpose of the PCV valve is to relieve pressure inside the crankcase as the engine runs. If these gases ad pressure have no where to go they will create one. Blow by piston rings, valve cover gasket leaks, oil pan leaks. All kinds of bad. Just something to think about.

The pcv was my first replacement with a new ford one then i drove it for a while and it still was consuming. I put breathers on to see if the tubes to the intake were letting oil go by, but that did nothing for me either.

I believe you replied that you replaced the original pcv valve/line with a new one. Then you said you installed breathers. You put breathers on the lines coming out of the valve covers? If so then I would expect the passenger side breather to eventually clog up with oil.

How many miles on the motor and are you the original owner?

If you are going to rebuild the motor I think you should not plug off the oil squirters if you use the 11-12 style pistons. http://forums.corral.net/forums/s-19...squirters.html

If you have an 11-12 do not plug off the oil squirters.

The problem is most likely the pcv system with the valve stuck open. Ford renamed this, but I cannot remember off hand. Adding a JLT oil separator will prevent oil vapor from being drawn into the engine, fouling plugs and lowering your octane - potentially damaging your engine. I've tried others, but JLT works best. Silver Horse and Shelby use JLT's design without paying for it, so don't help them out there. Another good one is Bob's Oil Separator. Everything else is a step down.

The pcv valve is in the valve cover and I pretty sure you need to remove that to replace. In almost all cars using oil, the pcv system is usually the main culprit.

I tried the new pcv before i tried the breathers. Ive also tried the jlt oil separator on the passenger side of the engine. I didn't notice any difference at all with or without it on there other than the fact that I would get probably about a teaspoon of oil every 500 miles.

I hate to say it. And I don't think you mentioned seeing blue smoke coming out of your exhaust. But it really sounds like one or both of the previous owners did not take good care of your engine. Oil must be getting past the rings somehow excessively. Maybe just a good overhaul will cure the oil usage? But if you are going to pull the motor out to do that, and you have the money, might as well rebuild it all the way and put forged bottom end in there.
