Hey folks, anyone have issues with a 2011 S60 T-6 consuming oil? I've had to put 2quarts in at 2k miles after having the oil changed. Can the oil trap cause this issue? or is it the pistons and rings?

The 2011 T6 engines did not have ring issues (at least, they do not have a TSB for the rings). They did have issues with the PCV, the cam cover seal, and occasionally the valve guides.

See this TSB:

Note that the valve guide issue is restricted to engines built before May 4th 2011 (remember that engine build date is not the same as the chassis build date).
