My Eclipse is giving me problems it is burning through 2 quarts in a week it has a leak on the valve cover gasket that I am fixing soon but from what I know that would not be causing this much problems. I can not even drive 100 miles without it going past half. It is really irritating being that I am broke as a skunk. If someone could give me any suggestions I will be really grateful. Also I changed the spark plugs and wires not even a week ago hoping that would help.

Do you
have the same problem?

Check to see if your pcv valve is working or plugged if it's plugged unplug hte hose and get a new valve. You may have a ring or valve seal problem as well or the return holes to engine are blocked and keeping oil in the cylinder head and burning.
