Re: My car burns oil really bad
the -96 4.6 V8 had problems with valve seals going bad prematurely, it sounds like that is likely the problem w/ yours. It's probably coincidence that you notice it more after changing to a synthetic, or maybe synthetic burns differently (more smoke) than regular oil.
