If the stock one has failed then maybe. But valve guides or rings or a leak is what makes oil leave.

I was thinking the same thing as far the rings

When your buddy is driving his car and just say he wants to stop and talk to someone while his car is still running for like 5 or 10 minutes , then he drives off does the car smoke alot from running parked for 10 minutes? If it does im thinking its his rings , or maybe it could be his pvc valve is bad , if the pvc valve is bad it can cause oil leaks and build up and that could cause it to smoke too

Hmmm let me ask him because he said he just got the motor rebuilt so maybe the PVC is just clogged up lol

If it's just rebuilt it may not have seated rings yet or hones out too much which will cause blow by

The engine that I have in my car loses oil at a really fast rate lately, but only when I drive it hard. (which is usually).


I notice that when I pop the hood after I drive it, the dip stick is popped out completely and resting on top of the tube. I put it back in and checked it the next day after a spirited drive, same ****.


But I figured out the easiest way to fix it.


Remove the hood, disconnect the electrical from the engine, pull the heater hoses off, pull the fuel line off, pull the vaccum hoses off, disconnect the power steering pump, AC compressor, exhaust, and transmission, hook an engine hoist up to it, crank it up, move it over a few feet, drop it off a cliff, hook up to a new engine, bring it over to the car, and reconnect everything. Works every time garunteed and costs less than $500!

If its freshly rebuilt and burning oil like crazy then it needs to go back to the builder for a warranty. If HE did the rebuild... well he's going to have to tear it apart and redo it or pay someone who knows what they are doing.
