Looking for answers!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I need help or answers I've recently put a reman 6.0 in my 07 Sierra it currently has 1400 miles on the new motor and has consumed 3 quarts of oil and has blue smoke on start up. I was told it's sucking the oil from the valve covers back into the intake anyone have any other suggestions/fixes?

No it's never over heated and I've been running Royal Purple 5w30 just drove it to Wyoming burned 2 quarts on the way out. I know it sounds crazy but I think the rings are just now starting to seat! Still keeping an eye on everything tho.
