Recently I noticed that my 02 AWM is consuming oil. I think/hope it's a leak although I can't seem to find the source. Around the valve cover looks moist, but it has looked that way for a long time. I've been running vavoline full synthetic 5w40 for a long time and used mobil 1 5/30 upto to the time of the sludge warranty except for a handfull of dealer changes way back when it was really new. I have 95k miles on it now and I've thought maybe it's buring it, but why all of a sudden. I use about 3/4 of a quart every 5k miles. I'm not sure what to think. After pouring 3/4 of a quart into it I would have thought I should see stains on my garage floor if it's a leak. My plan is to pull off what I can and really look around in there tonight or this weekend. I've read a number of posts about seals, valve cover, etc but I'm not sure if this much oil all of a sudden is normal for this age and miles. The thing that really worries me is that up to about 90k + it had never used a drop that I could tell.
