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.

Can I use 15w40 oil for the engine in a toyota corolla 1998 (gasoline)? Thanks.

Why not? You can use any weight you want. But,,, I run oil that is with the weather, We live in FL, and it gets hot here. 10w40 min. Multi-viscocity, It means your oil starts out at 10 weight cold, and as it warms up , it's 40 weight. The beads in the oil expand. A lot of people up north run straight 30 weight, I would want something thinner in there when it is cold out. So the multi stuff works great. Hope this helps.

2003 Toyota Corolla oil pressure light flickers then goes to solid after a short period of time. Last time this happened, changed oil and filters and light went away. Now after maybe 1000 miles of driving,...

see if you have any oil level or pressure sensors. sometimes these can get gunked up. You may need a new oil pump. I suggest you start using a senthetic oil (valvoline,mobil 1 is reccomended) after u get the problem fixed.

Red light indicating liquid dropping is flashing behind steering wheel, what does that indicate?

This is warning of low oil pressure. Double check the oil level first. The next thing to check is the oil filter and make sure you have no leaks.
