Well, currently the car is at a professional speed shop for diagnosis. I am just waiting for the results and will add the corrective cure to this newsletter in hopes to help others with the same problem.

Update from Nov 7, 2015: Well, after the shop ran wet and dry compression tests, they found that the rings were worn out. Apparently, the quality of the ring material is poor, so this seems to be the oil blow by problem. THE REPAIR: the 3-5 K estimate to completely overhaul the existing 3.0 became 6 K due to the need for new headers/cat converts (attached type) (Calif.) car !! So I had the overhaul done in 6 weeks and now have 1 K on the "new engine". It runs GREAT and of course, the body is excellent (worth the repair). Dad Toth is now a Happy Mazda 6s driver .... Hope that this helps someone else !!
