    My car is burning oil and I was wondering how I can get it to stop.

    How many miles? If it has 180k + I would think maybe your seals on ya pistons have gone to crap and its leaking passed, ether that or your gaskets are in need of being replaced? have you found oil in the spark plug tubs, or anywere elts out of the motor?

    take it apart and rebuild it, or buy another engine. no easy fix clark. It's likely either rings and/or valve seals

    there is nothing on spark plugs or wires. I am starting to look for a new block but i dont think i will keep this car more than a year so i dont want to dump a whole lot of money into it.

    I know this post is old, but I was wondering what's it mean if there is oil in the spark plug tubes?
