2002 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 131000 miles
My car has been burning oil a lot within the past two to three months. I took it to pep boys and they told me I was leaking oil so, they replaced the valve cover and oil pressure switch. Three weeks later my car was running really rough and my lifters were knocking. Usually when I accelerate from a stop around 30 to 40 miles per hour my lifters are knocking then, I don't hear the noise anymore. I checked my oil and there was no oil in the car. I added two quarts of oil and took my car back to pep boys the next day and they told me I need a valve job. Where the valve seal needs to be replaced. Is this correct? Can there be other problems that would have my car burning a lot of oil so fast? I just had my head gasket replaced 7 to 8 months ago. Can this be apart of the problem?
