So where exactly did he say the oil was going? If it's being burned it's coming out the exhaust!I questioned whether or not there may be potential contamination of the cat converter but was told not to worry that oil burning is not travelling out the exhaust.
This is that I would do in your situation. Replacing the rings does NOT always solve this oil burning issue. It did not for me. A new engine was required. So this could be $2k down the drain.I just am not in the mood of forking over $2Gs to those guys. Let the oil burning continue, funnel and oil jug in hand.
