New guy to this forum, I know there are multiple posts on oil here but this seems kind of extreme for what I am seeing. I just bought a 2001 Corolla, auto trans, lots of miles. Overall seems to be in good shape and drives well. Guy said it uses a quart every 1000 miles. Well that's 50 trips to work and back for me so no issue right? I get it home and its a quart low so I top it off. I proceed to put about 5 miles on it and fill it with gas. I get home and it took another quart plus to top it off. WHAT THE HECK!!!
What I don't get is there are no visible wet spots under the car, no drips on the driveway and I do not see any smoke. Ive stood behind it while it was started and revved up and no smoke. The tailpipe is black but seems like it is running rich. Also it will not idle cold and has a hesitation when accelerating.
