Just a quick question, how much oil is too much to be losing over time? A friend of mine is looking at a Rado, and the owner says it loses 1qt every 1000 miles. I didn't know what to tell him because mine doesn't lose any between oil changes, never had a problem with it. Thanx

Re: Burning oil?? (markymark420)

Any way to check if it's a ring? It seems like it would be blowing smoke if that were the case

Compression test might tell ya, you could also pull plugs and look at the top of the piston for caked oil.

Which engine is it?
If it's a g60, it could have blown charger seals, spitting oil into the intake.
