    ok, i know yu can get different dyes to show up for a/c leaks. I was wondering where i could get some to use in my oil. We think it's leaking but not sure where, since it takes a qt every 400 miles, and no smoke etc. Not sure if i can go on-line to get some or a name of a company/product to use.

    In my opinion, if ya don't see oil, your not gonna see dye. If ya see oil, follow it to the leak. I had an F-150 5.0L that used 2 qts per oil change (3,000 miles) and didn't smoke a lick, that I could see. No leaks. You'll find it smokes on the highway or hard acceleration and ya don't see it.

    it does a little under hard accel. But i guess that would be enough over time. Any ideas as to what it is? rings? valves? etc...
