No more oil consumption!

What??  Did I miss something??  I've never heard of O2 sensors being related
to oil consumption.

Your sudden  "lack" of oil consumption has about as much to do with your new
O2 sensors as the starter motor has to do with cooling the engine.

I think what you have is the classic case of a "coincidence"....keep your
eye on the oil level.  I've checked my oil before thinking the oil
consumption was "suddenly" gone only to check again in a few days and the
oil is "mostly" gone.  Keep checking your'll start up
again...BTDT!!  You checked on level ground, right??

My $.02  I wish it was that easy but it's not...I'm in the same boat as you
with my '95!!
