How much oil consumption is considered excessive with leaking valve seals? As I understood them its more of a slow drip into the cylinder and you get puffs of smoke upon startup due to this.
Is 2QT in 1400 miles on par for leaking valve seals? The dealer i bought my car from has determined and is replacing all the valve seals on both banks. Zero out of pocket cost to me, which i am very happy about.
I am somewhat skeptical that this is truely the root cause of my oil consuption issues. Anyone with any experience with leaking valve seals and how much oil they can consume?
