Wink Seals or Valve job?

How can I tell if my 1983 240D 4 speed needs new valve seals ($450) or the complete valve job which will be many, many more dollars? Miles are 139K, and I am burning 1 qt of oil every 463 miles, calculated in my pda every fill-up (sidenote getting 26-27 mpg each tank). Any suggestions or tests I can have done to pin down the culprit and solution to the big clouds behind my car? I have to say, every car behind me on the road seems to move into other lanes very quickly!!

Thanks,

Tim

You should post this in the Diesel Discussion forum, not the SL forum
