I had two out of six spark plugs like that (damp dark brown oil on threads) with no oil in the valve cover wells found after removing. I just live with it. My friend with a Z370 found the same on his plugs, go figure.

I have the long-block replacement from the very first oil consumption TSB. She burns about a quart every 5K miles which is my usual OCI so that's acceptable to me. My original 2006 Revup burned a quart/~23 hundred mi brand new.

I run a catch can and get about .5qt out of that every OCI; PCV valve is always drenched and doesn't rattle, so i clean that every time when I drain my catch can. I also religiously use a fuel additive to help prevent my oil rings from getting stuck which IMO, helps any engine in and/or prevent oil consumption with a lot of miles on the clock.

Enjoy your 06. I still love mine and wouldn't trade it for the world.

Erick please follow my direction to your other exact same post. Search the forum and you'll find a ton of threads that address both of your questions. If you post these questions again you might get hit with an infraction for not following the forum rules and I don't think you want to start off that way here.

This place is dead enough now, 75% of the posts here are vendors. Lets run off the newbies, that will help a lot. Yes, he should search, however the search function here suks donkey ***** and you guys know it.

Search: Best oil for VQ35


Search: Best spark plugs


Steer him in a general direction, give him a few clues on where to go or this place will turn into a dead vault of information that nobody uses.

I would recommend using 10w30 synthetic in the winter months and 10w40 in the summer months. Not sure of the part number but I have always used NGK's in all of my cars.
