SOURCE: oil light on 99' Jetta TDI
The "oil light" is actually a "low oil pressure" light, and not a "low oil level" light. I would get it checked out at a garage asap.
Did they change the filter at the same time? D

If oil was leaking into one or more cylinders the smoke would be blue.
There are things you can check for:
As far as your friendly mechanic is concerned:
It's unlikely anyone trying to sell you a $7,000.00 engine based on what you've described is looking out for interests other than their own.
Ask around, friends of friends, find someone trustyworthy. Get a second opinion, a third. It's a LOT cheaper than a new (yeah right) engine. Sorry about the sarcasm, but how would you know that it was new?
Please reply to me with a full list of symptoms, the results of your tests and any other details on whatever you may consider pertinent. This will help me help you.
But my most immediate advice is:

Oil consumption can be when the piston rings worn out, also valve gaides worn out.
means engine oil passes through the combustion chamber, you cant see smoke sometimes.but when condition of the piston ring is wost you can see smoke behind the exhaust.

Hi darlage, Yes unfortunately that sounds correct, have you recently ran over something in the road or driven over a curb?. Have you had your oil changed recently. If you are lucky the drain plug or the filter is loose. Worst case is a hole in the oil pan. Either way you should not drive the vehicle until repaired, you could burn the engine up or actually set the car on fire, the oil on the exhaust could burst into flames. Let me know if this helps and if I can assist further. Please rate this solution. lone99star

If you love the car as you say than be prepaired to shell out the bucks for a rebuild or replacement engine, because thats the only fix for your situation. You may not see any blue smoke but believe me its burning it, or you got a leak witch you say you don't. Its going someware and most likely its out the exhaust.
