Selling my Jeep / Kind of needs valve job...

Hello all,

Very sad to say I am selling my 95 YJ / Wrangler. About 2.5 years ago it started to burn oil at idle. Have taken it to two shops and they say they cant really find anything wrong with it, or its nothing serious like compression / gasket issues. So its most likely burning oil from the valves, only at idle. Instead of dropping the money for a valve job I have been adding a quart, maybe two before having to change the oil again. It has not been getting worse and I don't really notice any performance issues.

How much would you say this has to do with the value of the jeep.... Its a 95 2.5L with just under 75K original miles on it. Everything is in great shape, body, no rust, paint, etc. It looks and feels great except for some white smoke at idle and sometimes it doesn't even do it (like when I am trying to show someone). Do I spend the money for the valve job or sell as is?

I came here to get some opinions on how much less you all think the jeep is worth. Let me know, any insight is appreciated.

Sell it as is and let the buyer know that a 22 year old vehicle uses oil'
