The oil smells like gas? Change the oil. Do you have any running problems?

Why is my 1998 toyota corolla oil getting short

Is there any white smoke? Could be your valve stem seals. But the Toyota Corolla in this year's is known for burning oil. If you are having to add more than 1 quart per month. You may have a problem. Check for the obvious. Milky oil. Idle it to op temp and smell exhaust for burnt oil smell. Hit the gas...see any white smoke? Open your radiator cap after running and smell for exhaust... If all is well then you have a normal running toyota corolla. These cars are champs. They just tend to burn a Lil oil here and there.

My 1999 Bonneville is getting to much gas to the motor, I change the fuel pressure regulator and still to much gas

Hey John the only way to realy check fuel pressure is with a pressure gauge ,I did a motor some months ago and replaced 3 pressure regulaters 2 were no good out of the box also check your vacuum pressure to it.

Gas in oil

anything from blown gaskets to broken rings internally..if the pump is a mechanical one..(which I doubt) it may have a bad diaphram..

2.4l has gas in oil and no power

check the fuel pressure regulator and the map sensor vacuum hoses. as for the not revving above 4000 rpm is what the computer limits the engine to with no load on it, like in park or neutral.

1998 bonneville last time idrove it it was spuderig and exust smelled funny now it wont start sounds like it wants to start but wont turn over

A common issue on the series II 3.8 is the upper intake leaking coolant into the cylinders filling them with coolant.What occurs is the engine hydrolocking.The starter will engage but the motor will not turn over. If doing work yourself remove all the spark plugs first and crank the engine over if the engine is hydrolocked all the coolant will blow out of the cylinders .If the motor now turns over then the upper intake needs replaced as well as the spark plugs and oil.

2000 Pontiac Bonneville...gas fumes = Feul leak?

You know where you insert the Gas Nozzle to Fill it up? That is the Filler Neck and it can Develop Holes that will release Gas Fumes.
