Depending on what kind of vehicle you are talking about, it could be from worn piston rings, or a faulty PCV system not letting the crankcase breath.

3 months back replaced caburator for jetta 3 1.8 of 1995 but if I drive above 80 km/h it consume a lot of petrol. Why?

Did you setup the carburetor. Did you check for any fuel leaks. Remember fuel evaporates and leaves very little traces

Have a problem, motor not turns round, explosions in the caburator, motor is loosing energy

The problem is within the timing. Pull all spark plugs, disconnect ignition coil and clear the cylinders to be certain the cylinders are not flooded. Install all plugs, connect the coil and get the timing light and a test buddy. If you have a carburetor then you have points. Clean the points in the distributor and set them back to specification at TDC cylinder one. Look at the orientation of the rotor and where it points. Look at the cap, is it pointing to plug wire #1? It should be. If not rotate the distributor until it is set to TDC cylinder 1. Another thing to test would be a knock sensor or ignition module. Use the timing light to set the distributor angle. Go with the specifications first. If you don't like the acceleration add 2 degrees more BTDC.

I have a 1984 Ranger 2.0 engine. It belonged to my girlfriend who let it sit up a while. I got it to crank and run and started driving it. Everyonce in a while it would loose power and one time backfired....

check the oxygen intake system. I'm not sure but your car is eighter the caburator or fuel injected.

in anycase the white smoke and cuting off, backfiring and loosing power is cause of the caburator or oxygen sensor (in fuel injected cars).

get your oxygen intake system serviced. it fits your problems perfectly. seeing the age of your car I'm betting its caburator, have that serviced or replaced.

I have a jetta 2 1989 model doing 400000km. Its

First you need to determine exactly where the leak is coming from. Clean the engine off with some rags so there is no oil dripping. With the engine running look closely to see where the oil is coming from. The chances are pretty good that it can be fixed with a new gasket or two.Hope this helps.
