Re: The 72 foot 1994 bluebird/fleetwood motorhome

It's not leaking for sure. Not a drop.I did notice that the engine smokes alot after I switched oil. Espessially if you let it idle for any period of time. Could be it is still smoking when your driving it..Just the wind is blowing it away perhaps. when I get the funds I'm changing back to a conventional 15-40 before I did the change to synthetic the oil that was in it was in the bus from 2008 from when I bought it from the bus company. I drove another 4000. miles on it and it never burned a drop or leakied in 2 years. I swithced oil and now it is disapperaring. I think If I switch back it should be fine. Engine pulls and runs like an ox

Re: The 72 foot 1994 bluebird/fleetwood motorhome

I checked the oil. It seemed fine?? I added 4 gallons of t6 in Roswell on my way to Los Angeles. By the reading on the dip stick it didn't burn any oil after driving 1200 miles under the same conditions. ?? Just have to keep an eye out for it. Thinking of moving to lake Havusu City,AZ Property seems a little cheaper there. Well need to save up for the move. ZI get in one place and I'm ready to leave
