This truck sits for long periods between drives as evidence in the low mileage. I recently had the oil changed and there was only about a quart in the crankcase. I have driven it about 500 miles and it has been 10 month since the last oil change. For the last 3 or 4 years it has been smoking badly when first cranked but in 10 minutes or so stops. It sems to have gotten worse. My mechanic says it is probably the rings are worn or split or stuck as a result of sitting for long periods. Please tell me your take on this problem. Thanks so much.
