Hello,

Billy :

I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

Billy :

The oil consumption can be caused by a number of reasons:

Billy :

- first you need to check for any outside leaks........on sump, on valve cover etc.......

Billy :

If no outside leaks are found, and everything on the outside looks normal, then you have these reasons:

Billy :

- faulty piston rings, causing oil to slip from sump into combustion chamber, and burning....

Billy :

- faulty valve guide seals or stems, causing the oil to leak through the valve guides and to the combustion chamber and burning.....
