Case of the Missing Oil

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man

Dear Bob,
I recently bought my son a 1990 Toyota Tercel. I have started to notice that it is using oil -- I mean I have to add a quart of oil about every other day. Would you please tell me what the probable cause is?

Does it smoke or leak? The oil has to go somewhere. Check for a bluish colored smoke or stains on the driveway!
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
