I would have the tool on hand for the future. My oil consumption was one quart per tank full of gas. However, the number one reason I replaced the seals was the smoke. When I would start the car in the morning smoke would bellow out of the garage. The worst was when I would have a guy on a motorcycle behind me at a light and I would smoke him out when the light turned green. If it was just oil consumption I probably would not have done the job just yet.
