The engine feels quite well and it's not burning the lubricant and making smoke anymore while running. The problem I'm having is that AFTER the car has been parked for a long while, usually overnight, it burns lubricant and produces smoke for a little while. I have found evidence that the lubricant only enters one combustion cam because that lonely spark plug becomes very dirty and I have seen in wet in lubricant. I am constantly checking the lubricant level and it goes down smootly like a litre every 2 weeks. Is there a possibility that the seal (an o-ring perhaps?) In one of the valves in the particular cylinder is leaking lubricant into the combustion cam only when the engine is stopped?
