    I got a b16a2 engine in a 94 Hb and after I change oil at 5000km I notice that it has burned some oil, about half a litre.
    I use castrol syntec 10/30 should i be useing this oil in my engine or is there a better kind for it. My engines a 2000.

    I have heard that the synthedic version of castrol sucks. If your going to use a synthedic, go with mobil1, redline, or amstol (<-am i thinking of the right brand?)

    Are your using a catch can? If not I would consider trying one. My freind made one out of a "NeverDull" can, JB weld, a PCV vavle, and a few other ghetto things.

    Does it smoke any?

    You should be fine, but after changing brands, I wouldn't suggest changing again. I would just find a good brand like quaker state or redline. My brother worked at jiffy lube for a while, and that's what he suggested.

    quakerstate blows. Penzoil blows. Castro dino oil is ok. Mobil1 and mobil dino oil is good. Valvoine is alright. redline is good.
