    How many miles does it have on it? If it runs good and isn't using an excessive amount of oil, Drive it till it drops.Is it worth it to you to fix it? Can you do the job yourself? ( For that you'd need to be a pretty capable mechanic ) Can you sell it as is without taking it in the shorts?
    It's a fairly common problem in these engines and MANY people just drive them forever with the issue. I have assisted in this repair once and it can be done yourself with proper tools and ability. You've got to realize though.....It's a BIG job!

    Just drive it and save money as you can. Eventually, you'll have the cash to get the repairs done and you'll have a great car with this problem already taken care of. How often are you having to add oil? I know you said 2000 miles but how long in time is that? If it's once per month, that's not so bad... Like I mentioned, I'd be okay with it but I'd save money as best as I could to get it fixed eventually...

    What caught my attention was this remark "give it back". You're saying you can just give the car back to whoever sold it to you??

    There, ya see KC, there's a reason I'm so scared of Bikers, but they are great to have for friends!

    little tx:
    Using a quart in 2000 miles actually pretty GOOD for that car! Most people claim to get approx. 1Qt/1000 miles so "if" you really have an oil leak, it is probably minor. I'd probably forget about it for now.

    They have some nice roads though. I spent many miles flying down some Canadian roads on my bikes.

    Yeah, I've put a few thousand kilometers on mine and it uses around a litre in 2 thousand kms. All my cars have done this and I consider it quite normal.

    KC, you should feel privilaged to have a Canuck as a friend because I can make you Yanks realize how silly things are north of the border, and how lucky you actually are. (mind you get out of Liberal surfer-land).

    Kat, which part of Canuckville were you on. Our roads used to be good but in my Province I will need a 4 by 4 soon!
