about every 6000 miles i have to replace the #5 plug because it has filed out because it looks like it is burning oil. could this end up being a major problem, the motor is a 5.0l 305 1996 chevy.

If I were you, I wouldn't be asking these kinds of questions on a car audio forum...

I would take it to a trustworthy mechanic for a diagnosis.

Try changing the PCV valve, my car was burning a quart of oil between oil changes... fixed it in 5 minutes, and costs like 4 bucks for the part. My mpgs went up, as well as power in acceleration, and it idles smoother.
