How's it look?

And how do you fit a whole tennis court of oil in there?
Mine can only hold 5 quarts.
Just drained the coolant and looks pretty normal, little harder then new nut idk when coolant was last flushed on it. More mucky i guess.

I pulled the throttle body and cleaned IAC. I noticed a good amount of oil in the back of it and by the IAC.

What could it be?

Valve guides, maybe, but not the seals.
But bad guides will usually also produce a clattering noise.

Bad valve seals will cause some smoke out the tailpipe at startup.
But not so much once running. And generally not such a massive use of oil.

This is why we have been saying to check the coolant.
It sounds more like a bad head gasket than anything else, from the limited info we have...
I just drained the coolant as stated on my post. Seems more like it wasn't flushed in a while then anything. How would coolant with blown head gasket look.

Also to answer some questions in your post. Smokes a little at start up but once warm and running for a while, I've checked the tail pipe and was not smoking.

My pcv valve was completely shot and the rear of the intake manifold is completely caked with oil. Would that cause that much oil to burn up?

No opinions, comments?

I put some of that motor honey stuff in during my oil change and my ticking went away for my first start up since it's been apart. Nothing else is different other then that, new spark plugs and pcv. I did hear about some head gasket repair stuff you throw in the cooling system, any opinions on that. If it last for a lol it would be awesome so I don't have to rip apart the motor now.
