    My guess is rings. Compression test it before you do anything.

    compression test will tell you yes, Id honestly if you have another DD id take it as an opportunity to break the engine down and replace everything, rings, seals, gaskets, etc, thats just me, or just put whatever nasty oil honey you can in it to get it to stop smoking and sell it to some kid

    It could vary greatly. Depends on if you're doing the work yourself, and i assume you are not, otherwise you would probably of just added up the price of parts on your own. So since the motor has to be competely tore down and rebuilt basically, we're talking some serious cheddar.

    Does it smoke at all? During startup? or while accelerating?
