Default Re: Oil Consumption

Yea Im assuming it's either that or valve seals. However there's no smoke. Even at 7k rpm for 5s not one hint of blue (checked on Dyno) so I don't understand where it's going. There aren't any leaks either. Weird shit.

Should Nissan cover this ? Im at 57k and this is the 6th year owning the car. It's an 05

Another thing to watch is oil with high amounts of zinc as that will kill your cat.
