If so...that is your problem.....you should not be losing that much oil if an engine is properly broken in

White Smoke usually means water.....hows your coolant level?

Also..go outside and check your tail pipe..if its oily...well time to take it in

i broke in the car doing street driving. i stayed away from the freeway if i could. by no means baby'n it. and there is no coolant consumption and no oil in the tail. just black soot.. lots of it.


im set on it being the pcv system thats not working too well

I would pull your plugs..check the condition.

If one of them or many of them are abnormal...compression check

Somehow shape or form...oil is being introduce into the combustion chamber...could be PCV, but usually if it that is plugged up with nastyness...it creates excess pressure in the crankcase and you will see oil seeping through

I think thats oil smoke thats what color i had out my tail at full throttle but it looks like the upper intake cleaning(run rite) and the oil catch can made from a water seperator for a 3/8 shop line worked for me. but i do still get a black puff at start up on a cold morning. but i think thats the car running rich for a second.
