Hi, I'm a Moderator for this topic. I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.


I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

Hi

Just above normal , suggest you check your PCV valve as this is a common issue for engines burning oil at this rate .

Have you noticed a smoking exhaust at start up .
or when you accelerate hard ,if not check this then get back to me ,
In the mean time check the PCV valve this could be the main problem that they are having in Hollywood.
