On piston rings, winter storage as I do each year can lead to ring sticking or seizure. This will show as oil consumption which is the problem that I have at the moment. It is not a major problem as no blue smoke is evident out the back but it is annoying. The rings can free up by themselves on resumed use or may call for a motor rebuild. I do store with oil in the cylinders but sometimes that is not enough. Inexpensive solutions like Marvel Mystery Oil can do the trick but that is iffy. But worth a try. It may also be an intake manifold gasket leak as my RTV technician used gaskets that are not recoomended for aluminum intakes. I will pull the intake in the spring and install GM-recommended gaskets that I now have at hand. With due respect to those who are in the automotive repair business, I do wish there were more mechanics left who knew how to use a stethoscope rather than a lap-top. I have a hollow piece of bamboo in the basement.... Some members will know what I am getting at.
As to my age and profession, that is not terribly relevant to my contributions to the Forum. I will say that I have had a life-long love of automobiles without making any money in that world.
