Heh.... the #30 car on their "Thisty 30" oil burners list was the least expensive car on the ENTIRE list. Everything else was more expensive (some are 3x and 4x the price of #30).

I watch you tube videos off sheetz wifi. Thanks for calling me a clown and assuming I would drive like that without even asking if it that's what I do. You sound like a guy that jumps to conclusions with his foot in his mouth.

Engines before about 1960 simply had a pipe coming out of the engine and blow-by was pumped to the atmosphere. I rode the bus down US-66 for six miles to school for eleven years and I recall vividly of watching all the smoke roll out from under the t

As others have said, try greasing it unloaded. If that won't work, try taking it to a garage that has a pneumatic grease gun and let them try it. Andrew S.

My old 99 Camry has 120K on the clock and has never burned a drop of oil even while driven hard. My Sonata is coming up on 30k and doesn't use any oil either. It looks like some automakers just don't care, most people lease their cars or trade them

Most diffs really don't care about what grade you use, as long as it's in an acceptable range. The debate of 75w-90, 80w-90, 85w-140, 75w-110, etc is moot IMO. They are all reasonable grades found in diffs. Whereas the common logic that "thi

The Chevy spark is the only domestic on a list of 30 vehicles that are the worst oil consumers according to this "report" So these import buyers spend extra for something they see as better but in the end they pay more for everything.
