O.K Now not that this is a surprise a MItsubishi BUrning oil BUT this sint ANY mitsubishi I Have a 93' 3000gt SL AUtomatic 2wd FRNT about 120,000 miles and its a beautiful DOHCv6. Now the engine runs VERY strong I plan on keeping this car and not REPLACEING THE ENGINE ! My uncle is a mechanic and he has given me his advice. NOw heres the problem while in idle at a stop light or soemthing for a period of time the egine will make a ticking noise like its a lifter that went south or a valve, but after I take off ill get that o so wonderful trial of burning oil behind me thne eventually itll go away cause it airs out wihle driveing at normal speeds not in traffic oyu dont see a trail of oil because of the passing air dissapates it before seeing it. Which leads me to think I may need a valve seat job or no ring OR both what do you guys think?
have the same problem?
