Default Re: Oil Consumption Thoughts

Altkovi and all..
Again, please read the links in my earlier post. Everything is explained in them, including the whole tolerances issues. And I am know engineer or designer, but it seems to me, that the closer the piston is to the cylinder walls, that is going to lead to heat build up. There is only so much heat that thin coating of oil can disperse.
Also, try reading these links.

http://www.aa1car.com/library/oil_consumption.htm

And, if anyone has not realized, I am not specifically bashing any engine. Just putting out information on Oil Consumption in engines in general.

As for where I get the information that I am putting out, Google is a wonderful thing. Do a Google search for. GM engine oil consumption, OR what causes oil consumption, or anything similar.
