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?

Lisa,
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!
Bob, The Auto Answer Man
