If its burning the oil that means that the oil rings on the pistons are bad and the only thing to do is to rebuild or replace the engine it is usually less money to replace the engine with a good used engine.Sorry

Van used 2.5 quarts of oil in 1200miles no sign of oil burning or blue smoke at tail pipe. oil light comes on frequently 2004 dodge caravan

If there is no sign of oil consumption, then you have a leak some where. Un-noticed leaks are usually found at the rear main seal and leak as you are driving. If you crawl under the vehicle and closely inspect the area where the engine block meets the transmission you may find evidence of an oil leak.

2003 F150 4.6 w/ 90K miles using a quart of oil every 3 weeks. what's most likely cause?

A V8 engine will start to consume more oil as they get more and more
miles on them. The valve stem seals and piston rings wear, and let
more and more oil burn off in the exhaust. How many miles are you
travelling in said 3 weeks?

On a dodge caravan the pedal goes to the end without brake

Abs system cannot permit air to enter the hydraulic system, You need to check everything for leaks. Likely you have slight seepage somewhere, likely at or in a line going to the wheel you found you had air again. Leak does not have to be large and at this point likely is leaving only damp residue. If air was in the front, also check inside the caliper piston boot....If at rear, check for dampness under the wheel cylinder end boots.

Oil Change two weeks ago and oil level is low already???

I assume you have no leaks as you say. Your van does hold 5 quarts of 10w30 oil with filter change. The level was 1/4" above the add mark, which is less than 1 quart low. You drove the van 1,300 miles so it is very possible that it could burn that much oil in that many miles without you seeing much smoke. Top it off and have someone else drive it. Have them get up to around 60 mph, then let off the accelerator and let it coast down to 30 mph, then accelerate fully while you follow in another vehicle. If your van is burning oil you will see a big puff of blue smoke when they accelerate after coasting. If you do not I would suspect you were cheated out of about 1/2 quart of oil. You would not be the first person this has happened to. Top it off and check as I described and then check the level after driving another 1,300 miles. If it is still full find another place to change your oil as the place you went are crooks.

No visible signs of oil leak but requires 2 quarts of motor oil every 4 weeks. Car will not start until more oil is added

get a compression test on the engine as id sy its likely to need at least piston rings & a hone of the cylinder bores

Coolant disapearing

maybe ur correct it goes to the exhaust.

1. open the radiator cap, with coolant full observe when starting the engine. If the coolant comes out on the radiator it indicate there is a crack in the cylinder head.

2. Check engine oil if it is not deluted with the coolant (oil color changes), if deluted the cylinder gasket has cuts/cracks.

If this indication/observation is present, you need to have ur engine overhaul (semi-overhauling)
