    using roughly 1 litre of oil a week or more

    Z20let is using 1litre or more oil a week. Which is worrying.

    Just had stem seals replaced as thought it was that. No leaks under the car had all seals replaced few months back

    Can someone list all the possibke causes and rough repair prices.

    So far I've wasted 600+ pounds trying to solve it.

    Oil seems to mist from the collins dump valve although not much.

    And the exhaust... I can't tell if it is smoking or just steam as its sooo cold outside lately.

    Much help appreciated. Matt.
