Well, the history of my problem has been hunting down an idle issue. This has now gotten much worse. What I have not replaced in the ignition system includes the coil and ICM. In the fuel injection system I have not replaced the pump, EGR, ...and thats pretty much it. Now to the problems I am having... The truck on a cold start takes about 3-4 secs to turn over, then it almost always dies right away. Turning it over again takes less than a second. Once started, the truck idles very very badly...low idle speed, truck misses, it seems to also hunt for the idle at first. When driving from a stop, I need to put the gas pedal down almost all of the way due to the engine missing in order to go anywhere. The severity of this missing goes away after 10-15mins of driving but it is still there once warmed up. Now, the truck has been burning oil, but once warmed up seems to run pretty well. The oil is going at about a quart every week or so with moderate highway/city driving. Having tried to hunt down this miss/idle issue for some months now I decided to drop the truck in at a shop to have them check the distributor coil, ignition system, and fuel system. Pep Boys is around the corner from work (yeah...I'm thinking about taking it to the dealer now), so I took it in for a diagnostic. After about 30mins, the guy tells me oil is collecting on the spark plugs and burns off after you drive for a bit. He says a new motor is the only way to fix this... WHAT? I asked for the feedback on testing the ignition/fuel system and he says there is no point in doing the tests. Needless, they charged me half price for their diagnostic. Now, about 5months ago I changed the plugs/wires and noticed on one plug a bit of oil. I didn't think much of this as the truck has ~150k miles on it (probably ~145k at the time, I don't drive much). So, today I am going to replace the plugs again and change out the ICM (it looked pretty corroded when I changed the cap/rotor recently). What do you guys think? In my experience with Porsches, writing off the motor at first sign of burning oil isn't the normal practice. We usually rebuild the head FIRST...I'm guessing this opinion from Pep Boys is pretty...bad? Help me out here.
