Question about 2002 Nissan Altima
I have a 02 nissan altima 2.5s. that is burning oil from the exhaust and i have to add coolant once and awhile. i change the spark plugs recently and they where black as night all covered in a oily black residue. i took the car to a shop and they did a compression test and all cylinders were reading over 180lbs. which i was told that this was normal for this car. what do you think is wrong with it thanks.
If its consuming coolant, most likely it's also burning oil, replace engine, and possible catalyst is also no good.

I also have the same problem took the head off to find nothing wrong with the head nor gasket. I was told by my friend that the catalytic converter may be the problem. Back pressure builds up and pvc valve sucks up the oil. Check your catalytic first.
