subiesnack Posted November 4, 2019 Share Posted November 4, 2019 Hey folks, my 02 legacy is eating up a ton of oil. It's going through about a liter every 300 - 350kms. I only ever notice smoke out the tailpipe after engine braking, which points toward valve seals, but it rarely smokes on startup ( I've noticed a small amount of smoke on start up maybe a handful of times. Car sat for 4 days last week and no smoke on startup) I can usually smell burnt oil after driving for a bit. Anybody have any ideas or input? From what I know worn valve seals always smoke on startup, and worn rings smoke constantly ( correct me if I'm wrong) .. Car is an ej25 N/A, manual transmission with 235k kms.
