Welcome! Stick with the Maxlife at a few shorter 3,000 mile intervals to get that gunk out. Skip the Restore and don't bother with a UOA for a few changes until those heavy metals are flushed. If you want to use some cleaning addatives, Kreen and Au

the oil consumption fix is fairly easy if you have the tools, which don't cost much to acquire either. I have used the EngineTech pistons rings one three 1zz-fe so far so good! they only cost $23!

Bars Leaks pellets are cheaper than buying antifreeze all the time - easier on the environment too. If the Castrol still had life left at 6000, the PP should go 10k easy.

I'm usually good at tracking those things down but I can't find one. Any company that has their employees use it needs to supply them one - so if you know of any local shops that use it, they might be nice enough to give you a copy.

Yours burns a quart per 1,000 miles? I have a 94 Corolla with the 7AFE which suffers from the same problem; if I routinely use cleaning additives in the oil, I can get the oil consumption to about 1 quart per 2,000 miles. You might want to skip usi

Such a gorgeous ride. But I would be scared to death to buy it. My personal experience with BMW was not good. One that old could develop some very expensive problems rather suddenly. But then again, all life is a risk...
