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?

		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

		I'm hoping for just a re-built head here...
