    The car is a 1.6 VVTI LB issued in 2001 with 110 HP.

    In December I have changed the oil up to the "FUL" level.. Since this time the car was running approx. 1500-2000 km-s, and the oil level goes down to the" LOW" level mark. There are no mark of oil leaking under the car. Could you tell me something about the reason?

    I have a 2000  Corolla and it has been burning oil for 2 years. It has 250,000 km and wondering if it's worth doing the piston rings on it. I've known other toyota owners that have gone over 400,000 km. The body is still in great shape for being 9 years old. I think the piston job is around $2,000. Any suggestions?

It may have over heated at some stage and your ring tension has colapsed. They are hard motor Im sure you will get away giving the sleeves a slight hone just to ruffen it a bit pop in new rings and stem seels. You can do all this with out taking the motor out.pop the head ,drop the sump and you are there.

It could be your timing belt .That would make it burn oil and the noise could be your valves hitting the pistons. Take the spark plugs out and see if they are black that will tele you if they are burning oil. The timing belt should be changed after 80,000 miles .

Blue smoke

Blue smoke (how many miles on engine, 50k or 500K???????
to some this means, burning oil, others steam
it that blue smoke lingers a long time that is oil burning
and smells just like oil burning.
and means 2 things,
1: engine burns oil.
2: if car had autotmatic trans the vacuum modulator love fail
and suck ATF fluid to the intake plenum and burn it, and bingo burning oil like mad.
3: PCV valve packed solid,and forces engine to leak oil or burn oil. or both. this is a 50k miles service point, skipping this?
4: gas in the oil making it thin and not sneaks past valve stems.
does oil change cure this.>?

now engines.
worn out engines smoke. (burn oil)
as do bad valve guides and seals.
and bad piston rings.
100 years same story, and miles matter. History on engine too.

The jeep has over 204k miles and burns oil. Plus I am losing anti-freeze and unable to tell where it is going. When I pull the cap to add oil the cap and the oil shaft has a yellow goo. Is it anti-freeze?

You have a bad head gasket,most likely

At 204K/122,000 miles is sort of low,but enough
of an issues with the oil burning,you may want to go with
a new motor.
It will be hard to do a cylinder leak down test for ring
issues, with a bad head gasket.

It is coolant going out the exhaust and oil ruining
your radiator,heater core,etc

I have a 2005 Dodge neon sxt and in the morning when I start it the engine makes a really loud knocking for about 15 seconds then it gets softer. The noise is there all day. I have about 66k miles on it...

This is probably a bent pushrod or warped head or something of that sort. SERIOUS problems. Take it to a mechanic. Knocking of any sort is a bad, BAD sign. Good luck.

I have 97000 mile on my 05 Nissan Altima 3.5 SER the timing chain is making noise if I went over 7500 mile on synthic oil would that make my timing chain go bad the dealership said that is why it is making...

That's a load of **** they are feeding you.The timing chain tentioner has a fault and not tentioning the chian.I think you have done a good thing keeping it on synthetic oil.That causes less wear on moving parts than other oils.

Oil light??

I was lucky on mine. It was just a bad oil sender switch that needed to replaced, plus the cable connector up-grade. Oil was leaking past the switch. Oil pressure was measured at full spec, both at idel and running.
