How many miles? Some oil consumption at higher mileage is plenty normal. If you have that much going through your PCV to require a catch can, you may have larger issues.

The saab burns some oil between changes, although I'm pretty sure it's the turbo going bad that's causing it haha

But since it's only like 100 bucks more to get a bigger bolt on turbo vs a rebuilt stock one it looks like that's the route I would wind up going haha

I've just crossed 123k kilometers. Usually the oil level stays put for the first couple of months after a change, but then starts burning through it by the time it's due. Topped up a quart or so each time before the last two changes.

Pff. When you own a diesel you don't need an oil cooler. We run cool as beans.

In other news, my dad gave me some free lobster, man I love Atlantic lobster fresh off the boat.
