So last winter had a family members 3.4l come to me with bad head gaskets. I took the heads to the machine shop and had them gone thru, new valve seals installed, pretty much what ever it needed. I installed heavy duty gaskets and new head bolts. Over the past year pretty much the car goes thru a quart or more every 1k miles. Before the head gasket change it used maybe half a quart over 6k miles. I have spot checked the pcv valve and it is good. I am kind of wondering if the valve stem seals maybe are bad even though they were replaced.
