Well I'm liking the response I'm getting from you much better than what I've heard. I know jack about cars, but when people started telling me I was getting oil out of the exhaust I thought it was odd, but since I'm now learning, I just took it for face value. I do however have what appear to be "oil spots" all over my back end, (bumper and even as high as the tail lights) which is why I bought the "oil out of exhaust" story.
I'm not sure that you mean by "exhaust system shows black inside" but I can tell you that if you look at my tailpipe where the eye can see, it is as black as it gets :oops:
Thanks for your help by the way. This is what happens when are you are new to the world of cars, you get taken for a ride.
I believe that I am burning a bit of oil, however nothing is dripping, for example the car is parked for an extended period of time, once I move the car there are no oil puddles on the ground, is it possible to leak internally? I'm wondering if maybe i'm losing oil through the enlarges pistons, is that possible? :Oops:
