Oil Burning/Engine Rebuild
Alright, so I know I'm definately burning oil where it's a problem. I'm burning about a quart every 500-600 miles if not two quarts. The right side of my rear bumper (exhaust side) is covered with soot from the smoke. cry

I might need an engine rebuild, but not sure yet. Anyone know what could be causing this...busted rings? Seals? Etc. I still need to take it to a shop but I'd like your opinions first. This is the last time I'm getting a used car, my 13 y/o Capri didn't even burn as much oil as my Celica is now. frown

Anyone recommend a place in SoCal for things like this?

There are many reasons why cause oil burns. Bad bearings, rings, valve seals, head gaskets, cracked block. Major repairs are usually the answer.

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.
