Piston Slap: Oil Consumption on an Imperial Scale?
Hagerty’s very own Don Shermanwrites:
I have a 1965 Chrysler Imperial powered by a 413 cid V-8. It runs well but consumes a quart of oil every 150 miles. I suspect faulty valve stem seals. Do you concur? Can they be replaced WITHOUT yanking the heads or other more involved procedures?
While bad valve stem seals aren’t a common problem on Chrysler’s “wedge” engines, anything can happen on a 45 year old car!
