Re: Hemi is burning oil like crazy.
Sounds strange to me. I would suggest that you check the oil again and reposition the dipstick in reverse to eliminate the possibility that the dipstick isn't redirecting somewhere at the base of the tube. To consume that much oil so quickly there could only be a few explanations. Oil is getting into the combustion chamber through the valve guide in the cylinder head, past the piston rings or through a cracked cylinder head, which would also introduce coolant into the combustion chamber to produce that whits smoke effect. Does the problem go away once the engine is completely warmed up?
