Definitely burning oil then, and it’s more likely valve seals or less likely rings. I would imagine that at this age parting the van or selling it to a junk yard would be the best course of action. It’s probably worth no more than $1k and either valve seal or piston job is going to ring at least just as much, or more. If you can part it out and sell most of the working parts, you can probably save a couple K towards a newer vehicle. I know it pains to get rid of an otherwise fine vehicle, and I would feel bad about that, but money wise, it’s probably for the best.
