    Question Oil Consumption

    What's everyone's oil consumption like? Ever since doing the Dr. Vanos rebuilt VANOS + viton seals, I seem to be consuming more oil then usual. Has this happened to anyone else?

    If so, what was the fix?

    If not, what's a "normal" consumption amount?

    -Matt

    Solved.

    When the VANOS unit was reinstalled, there was an insufficient amount of sealant put in the 'half-moon' areas, and oil was leaking out of there.

    Something I would have never thought of, glad you resolved it.
