      1qt every 4-5k is completely normal, especially for 60k miles. There is nothing to fix. High compression, Direct injection, turbo, these all contribute to oil consumption. Also, some people drive...

      The PCV likely went bad and sucked the rear main seal in or blew it out. Now you have a vacuum leak at the rear main seal when you hook up the PCV line to the manifold.
      Also, avoid cheap pcvs. I...

      Yeah, catch cans will create lots of condensation due to the hot pcv gasses going into a cold catch can. 95% of what you're catching is probably water.
      That's one of the reasons why I don't run...

      Oregon will definitely not be on a fat list anytime soon. Everyone is either on drugs or a vegan, or both.

      If you use a carbon cleaning chemical a few times a year, it will last a lot longer.
      Methanol injection and high rpm driving will also help keep it clean.

      Log fuel rail pressure with vcds. Verify specified and actual fuel match.
      If fuel pressure is within spec, then po119a is just a false code due to a vacuum leak.
      The misfires are also caused by...

      Name brand Rtv such as Permatex stays in place very well and stays flexable. Most other car manufacturers use Rtv on the timing covers and oil pans instead of seals or gaskets. I haven't used that...

      I ran into this issue at work quite a few times over the years. I have started to rtv every single cover and no problems since. I know you're not supposed to, but I cannot have leaks coming back.

      I have done many timing chain jobs on tsi engines. I personally remove that screen and throw it away on every cam bridge, even brand new ones. As long as the check ball was still there, it's ok.

      It sounds like carbon on the intake valves. It will cause misfires and rough idle on start up because the carbon is hard. As it gets warmer, it will run better because the carbon softens up.
