    Hello All
    I rebuilt my daughters 91 SI last winter, after determining it had some
    head aches...
    Broken valve and a bent valve.
    Did the rings, valves, guides all gaskets, and after an easy 2000 km
    break-in, it happily passed the emission test.
    A couple of months later it started to use oil, and now is using about
    a litre a week. It gets driven about 125 kms a day on the highway, (work
    and back) puts out some noticeable smoke on accelerating, tho I haven't
    followed it down the road to confirm highway speed smoking.
    Anyone had this experience....?, with what solution.
    Thanx for any help

    In most cases, the rings are the reason that an engine starts burning lots
    of oil. It's my guess that you must have done something wrong. I suggest
    that you do a compression test to determine if I am right or wrong.
