    Alright i guess i was wrong on oil change...this oil change has alittle over 5k on it but at 1k i had the valve cover changed due to low oil...they then topped it back technially i used a quart in 4k with AFM OFF...forgot to put that i added a 1/2 quart in beween also

    Im going to try one of those catch cans.. There was another thread on it. It catches all that oil thats going into your intake from the crankcase breather tube. It sounds like thats where your oil is going to me. Its not right that it has to be done but GM has designed it this way. It seems the AFM is causing more oil to become airborne and going into the intake. But you also stated that AFM was de-activated and your still having oil consumption issues so what would be causing an unusually high airborne rate? It seems strange to me to change a valve cover.. what is in a valve cover that goes bad or is defective to warrant a change?

    I might get that catch can if this keeps going on...the valve cover was replaced because GM changed the design on it and installed a baffle/deflective shield on it,i assume to stop the airborne oil...just left side valve cover(driver side)...they also did a clean on the cylinders at the same time they did that

    Well my truck goes in next week for the new throttle body(P2135 code) and new pistons and rings(all 8)...ugh still using oil

    hopefully you have some time and miles left in the warranty and you just end up with a new engine at some point. I would think that it would be cheaper to put the new engine in rather than pay for labor replacing pistons and rings. but, I have not priced them out so I could be really off in that assumption.

    Well the good thing about this is i AM still under warrenty for a couple more months!...they will be replacing the TPS and ALL 8 pistons and rings free of charge for me!...the service manager said the TPS was under a "special coverage" till 120k also...he said without a warrenty the pistons and rings and gaskets would run around 2,500 bucks!!!...he ordered everything yesterday and now we are gonna set up a time next week...

    Nevermind...i have to do a stupid oil consumption test before they do pistons and we go

    I always wondered how they know that the customer is not draining oil out and taking it back saying that it is low. I know that they expect people to be honest, but as we know that is not always the case. I wonder if they mark the drain plug to show if it has been moved. I guess if someone really wanted to try to scam them they could just suck it out of the dipstick with a pump. Just something that I always wondered how they prevent that from happening.

    I just changed oil on saturday and they said i dont have to come in for their oil change... have to go back in 500 miles

    If the piston rings are allowing oil blow-by wouldnt the truck smoke?? I mean how does that much oil go by the rings and not burn and cause blue smoke..I can see maybe oil going into the intake so minimal that you wouldnt see any burn but blow-by the rings I would think would be seen. Maybe im wrong.

    Well when they changed my valve cover and cleaned pistons they tipped the intake over and a TON of oil poured doesnt smoke but my exhaust gets black around the tips every now and then
