Probably due to worn out piston rings, as this is normal for high milage. If you don't have leaks. A compression test will verify this if you are concerned.

Pajero 3.5 24V 1994 DOHC ignition coil cheaps burining

check that you are fitting the correct voltage coils into the vehicle . There are 2 voltages . One is a start 12 v run 12volts and the other is start12v run 7.5 volts . It uses a resistor either in the coil or the wire from the ignition. The voltages are stamped into the coil housing. If you have a start 12v run 7.5 and it is burning then check that there is 7.5 volts on the run circuit and not 12 volts. Second point do not leave the ignition turned on to run accessories when the engine is not running as the coil will still get voltage continuously instead of a pulse and will overheat and burn out. Use the accessories side of the switch position.

Check Engine coolant level, if ok, then try replacing engine thermostat. If overheating continues, pressure check the coolant system. If it fails the pressure test, I would bet on a leaking head gasket which would be evacuating your coolant by passing it out the tail pipe. Check the spark plugs to see if they look like they are all burining uniformly. Check plugs before replacing head gasket to confirm the suspicion. Sad to say, but if water was used as antifreeze, and allowed to freeze in the block, you may have a cracked head or block. Take it one step at a time. Good Luck!

Burning oil, whats a easy fix

If you are not leaking oil and have a light blue smoke from the exhaust,you are burining oil in the combustion chamber. No easy fix as it can be piston ring or rings or valve guide seals or a combination of both. An engine burning excessive amounts of oil requires a rebuild or a replacement.

I am driving the sane distance to work no changes, of directon. why my 2005 toyota corrola is burining up more petrol than my 1998. need some advice.

No two cars will get the same gas mileage, if your 1998 was a stripped down version without many accessories and was kept well tuned up, it would get better mileage than a 2005 model that had more accessories and needed a tune up. Everytime you use the air conditioner your gas mileage is affected, and even if you open your windows it is affected.

Keeping a car well tuned and the tire pressure correct and limited use of accessories will help on your gas mileage.

i hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is either bad piston rings or bad valve seats, and unless you are very mechanically inclined this would be a job you would want to let a mechanic do

My 01 grand am gt is overheating the cars heat will only blow cold air and alot of thick white smoke comes out of the exaust

White smoke is a sign of burining antifreeze. When heater is not blowing warm air, that is a sign of faulty heater core.
No power, coolant loss, overheating, is sign of headgasket leak.
Double check your thermostat as well.
