I have a Chrysler 318 engine in my boat with about 600 hours on it. It suddenly started burning oil in one bank. I'm thinking a bad valve guide or bad piston oil ring. What tests can I do to determine the problem?

You could do a compression test and a cyinder leakdown test to see if it's piston rings or valves, but it's probably the valve seals are bad. They used plastic and other compuonds. There are better thing s around like positive valve seals that will probably take care of it.
