Question about Toyota Corolla
For some reason the Live Session froze. Our apologies for any inconvenience. Please find below the last part of my posts in case you were not able to view them.
what about the piston rings
that could be checked with a compression tester at your dealer
so for the moment course of action would include: compression test
dye to determine where the oil went, if no trace found then it could be assumed was burned; change the catalyctic converter, it went as a direct result of oil in the exhaust system
some remedial/temporary workaround includes installation of an aftermarket oil cooler with its own fan; maintain a lower engine temperature by removing the thermostat (not applicable to cold regions) and wiring the radiator fan to continously work.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
