Question about Pontiac Grand Prix
No, if a bad ring, you would have a worse problem with oil getting to combustion area and burning.
It could be an indication of running too rich. Has your gas mileage suffered?
Have you recently had a problem with hard starting? Where you had to crank it a lot to get it started? That would let too much gas in cylinders, and it would have slipped down the walls into the crankcase.
At any rate, need to change your oil and filter. Then see if problem returns. Good luck.

I doubt it.
The most common way to get excess fuel in the oil is to have a fuel injector or fuel pressure regulator fail.

If you are that deep into things you will do poorly without a good manual. Are the pistons new or used?If they are used you need to completly clean the ring grooves in the pistons or the new rings will stick and gall.Did you remove the ridge at the top of the cylinders? If not there is a good the top ring will either break or bust the upper land off of the piston. Hopefully you had a machine shop go through the block. Check the ring manufacture's web site. I am sure they will have tips and instructions.

There should be a small black cover on the front of your wiper motor, held on by, i think, one screw. Remove the cover and you'll find a circuit board. That's all you need to replace.

SOURCE: 04 Grand Prix oil leak
if it is not leaking then it is being burned by the engine, how many miles go by before you need to add oil?, if u are adding more than one quart every 1000 miles u have piston reing problems and or valve guide seal leaks. U won't see any smoke in most cases unless you are really going through the oil, like 1 quart every 300 miles.
