Thanks for all the info.The "leaky valve" statement was my description. I picked up my car today and was armed with more questions after reading your replies. I need motor mounts and subframe mounts, $800.00 It was explained to me about replacing the seals, timing chain etc for around $1600.00 presuming the guides are okay. Wait and do the guides when needed. I last changed my plugs five months ago for the same problem and I am not burning excessive oil.
The charge for labor on motor test engine (due to rough)ride and replacing the plugs was $197??
