RE: oil burning question
Sounds like valve stem oil seals and valve guides to me, common problem on the I5, does it burn it on the over run?

Subject: oil burning question
I've heard that the I-5 Audi engine lasts forever, so what would be the
more appropriate reason for my ouil burning? Would it likely be best to
get my cylinder head rebuilt with new valve guides, or could my piston
ring be more likely to be at fault? This is a 1982 coupe with 180,000
kilometres on it......
I'm hoping for just a re-built head here...
