Alright could be ignition when was the last time you changed your plug's and wire's?When was the last time you changed your cat?Is it the cat the car came with when the car was new?Also I take it there are no code's since the car didn't fail for the check engine light being on. Do you know how to check for code's without a scan tool on that car?Let me know.

Your oil consumption is within spec's did you make sure your spark plug wire's are routed correctly?You didn't use platnuim plug's did you?Also try this for me let the engine idle till the radiator cooling fan come's on. Let me know where on the temp gauge the fan come's on?
