Hi

As a newbie - what's acceptable for a 924 engine to burn oil ?
My engine is fine on start up - no smoke and during warm up - but can get blue/grey on hard revving when warm.

To put you in the picture, the engine has been stood for over a year and has only twice reached full operating temp in the past few monthsl. I also know that no 3 cylinder is barely operating as the cam lobes are virtually flat.
Could any of these contribute to oil burning?

Thanks for any help

First, your engine sat for a long time. Anticipate this for a while. This may go away but you will pro'lly have oil consumption due to a car that sat for a long time.

With the lobes- replace cam and make sure everything is right. Can this create oil consumption? I think your problem sounds more like valve guides... :-/
