Okay, my 03 Alty consumes oil already. About 2 quarts between oil changes. It doesn't smoke until I floor it past 4 grand. I've done some searching and come to a conclusion that she may have bad piston rings. I was wanting to fix up on this engine but I've also want to get a new motor. I'll probably do a compression test soon too. If piston rings are bad, can I fix it? Or is it best to get a reman engine? The car drives fine and doesn't really give me any problems. I want to resolve this problem before I do any mods to the motor.
