Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.


This issue is from one of the piston rings sticking or being broken which allows the oil to bypass through the cylinder and burn out of the exhaust. The first step is to have a cylinder leak down test performed.
