ok i just recently replaced my timing chain, tensioner, guides and gears on my 93 D21 4x4 KA24E. before i did this it did not burn One drop of oil. Now that ive changed thses parts the truck is burning oil. where i have to add a quart about every week. ive checked for leaks, and everything is dry. the truck has 79859 miles on it. The truck runs excellent, not a tick, sqeal or anything. So how would it burn oil now that ive changed the timing componants? I did a compression check, and it had almost perfect compression,(It was at 5% on the dial, and 0 means perfect) so i know that part is good. Anyone know what could have happened?

Valves themselves, or could it be valve guide seals, because when i gave it a tune up there were signs of ash deposits on the plugs

If you're losing oil at that rate just by replacing the timing chain components, I'd venture to say that you have a major oil leak in the front of the motor. Could be the crankshaft seal or the timing cover seal.

I did the first time, but i had to tear down the front cover again because i blocked the entire hole, i had no oil pressure. i cleaned it all up, and put a light amount right around the two holes on the cover. i have new gaskets, seals, the whole nine yards. like i said the truck runs excellent, just like a brand new truck, but the only thing wrong is the oil burning.
