Maxsom. I have a new question. I have a 2004 Saturn ion 2.2 that I had the engine rebuilt, new rings(std), new pistons(std), new rod inserts(std), had the cyl head redone by a machine shop, after it was done the car smoke very badly. Thinking the rings need to seat I drove it over 800 miles it burned about 2qts of oil. Well I had it tore back down and check to see if we had broke ring. It was not. We could see that most of the oil lost was on #1 cyl. So we put different rings in it (all molly) before we had molly/chrome. We sent the head back to the machine shop to recheck it. It was good. Now that we have put it all back together it still smokes all coming from #1 cyl. I have drove it now 400 miles. I know the rings has to seat but this is bad. Any clues.
