It's possible that it could be draining past the rings, especially if your engine is high mileage. A compression test would tell you for sure. Hope this helps.

My car is using i lot off petrol why? and why is the petrol going to the engen in the oil how can that be?

it is not supposed to, they should remain separate , your petrol is just lying in your sump at this stage, check your pipes, oil is usually circulated in the engine and goes little anywhere else , your fuel goes from the tank , through the fuel filter to the carburetor or injectors , and into the pistons , the closest oil and petrol ever has to meet is the small drop of oil remaining in piston chamber before combustion ,

Remove sump

sump what sump.
are you asking an engine question?
what is wrong?, tell the story, or at least a tiny hint so we can get on the same page..
my wild guess is the engine oil pan (sump) and not tranny or other
sump like objects. or other many fluid containers all very sump like.
but the answer is in the FSM, buy one, and read how to remove anything on the car.
here state side we have and dont need books until
we break 10 parts and then read the authortive manual.

Pcv valve location

Sounds like ignition problems. It could be misfiring or running extra rich. The gas that should be burning and going out the exhaust is washing down the cylinder walls into the sump. You should check the engine computer for trouble codes with a scanner. Not good to run the engine with that contaminated oil.

Check oil light stays on while driving

well the first thing to do would be to check the oil but im guessing you did that already so it could be a couple of things first as long as the oil pressure is fine it could be a faulty sensor most sensors plug into the bottom of the sump and can be pulled out and cleaned

second it could be the pump the light is on because the pump is not gettin the oil up into the block and the oil pressure is staying very low

best bet would be to take it to a shop.hope this helped
