    Trying to decide if it's worth the money to rebuild or replace the engine. Using oil sometimes 1qt as low as every 400 miles sometimes as high as 850 miles. Vehicle is in decent shape and until now has had no mechanical problems over 2 years and 48,000 miles. Replaced the EGR and PVC hoping this would lessen oil consumption but no luck. Rebuild or new engine would cost me what or more then it's current value trade in or private party. I like it but not sure if I want to throw this much money into it. Anyone have any ideas?

    Can't find any with less miles and a warranty either forgot to mention that. I'm not going to throw down a grand (or more) plus paying a mechanic to swap them for an engine with no warranty and 100 to 200k miles on it (or more).
