    lol @ stephen2006. Nah non of that. The real reason is that its using excessive oil and putting eml on due to plugs coking up so net q paid for my work to strip it and investigate so i pulled it apart. found the fault-m all the rigs on piston 1 are in a line.

    Humm, interesting to know that - there have been other instances of excessive oil consumption in other threads, and that might well be a possible reason.

    Top work on spotting the cause. I wonder if a dealership would have noticed
