landtortise89 is starting off with a positive reputation.
ok so in the last couple days ive noticed a couple things in my truck with regards to my oil consumption. firstly it's fairly excessive 1 qt in 50 miles. Secondly when I pulled into the parking lot at work last night i noticed i had a fairly heavy miss fire again (suspecting #8 hole) , and lastly while I rarely see smoke when driving during the day except under hard acceleration which pours out black smoke like a diesel, a set of headlights behind you at night can tell a different story. my truck is smoking under acceleration and deceleration. Is it time to yank the motor and give it a freshening? the truck sat for 3 years could i get away with valve seals and maybe a fix in a bottle? if I can get the consumption down to 1 qt every 1000 miles id be thrilled.
