So.... I rebuilt the 22R-EB last year and have around 10K since then... new crank, rods, .030 over pistons, new EB RV head, cam, ARP studs, yada, yada... I checked my oil today and was a couple of quarts low, kinda wierd... got home, let it cool off and just started looking around under the hood... opened the rad cap.. nice and full. Opened the overflow bottle and was surprised to see nothing but black sludge... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" /> easily a quart... no trace of water in the oil (that I can see), no milkshake under the oil cap, no white smoke, no gurgling sound from the heater. It runs great, doesn't overheat... What gives? Anyone ever heard of this b4?

I'm beyond frustration with this... I love this 4Runner, its been my dd for the last 3 yrs, but I've about had it... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" /> gonna pull the spark plugs in the morning see if there is a story there... geez...

Did you by chance replace the timing cover or chain guides when you rebuilt? It may be worth your time to pull the T-stat and check for a hole in the timing cover underneath.

sound like a hole in the timing cover or a bad gasket on the timing cover

Sounds like your oil pressure is good. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I'd first suspect any gasket that has both coolant and pressurized oil routed through it. You could also have a corrosion hole between a high pressure oil line and a coolant area.

>>>*If the tensioner hung up enough to allow the chain to cut the cover it would be warning you with the classic rattling noise.

It is possible the gasket itself breached for some reason, there is a pressurized oil galley that runs pretty close and can leak oil into the coolant.

Typically that would be a chocolate milk color, though, not black. I would dump the coolant recovery bottle and wait, because if you have that much oil in there it should show in the crankcase on on the filler cap for sure.

Run her for awhile that way and see if it keeps coming, watch the oil level, too. Holler if you think you need a cover, 3 year warrenty on those....*EB

Good advice... I'll change the oil this week too, that will let me know if there's any coolant in there fer sure <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />

I'll let you know on the cover... not looking forward to tearing into it again. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" /> In Feb I had to replace the TC gasket because of an oil leak... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" /> dangit

Little tip on inspecting that cover. If you have some kind of solvent laying around, pour a little into the cover and very slowly work it around. If there's any cracks not visible to the naked eye, the solvent will find it.
