My 2001 corolla 67K has high oil use (especially in high speed) and rattling noise problem.
The engine is pinging when started and over 60m.
The dealer said I need to chage a new engine. Dose the high oil use, engine knock and low compression justify a new engine?

Thank you.

From the ounds of your engine it has 167K instead of 67K. Something has caused the engine to fail prematuraly. I hope you cahnge dthe oil at every 3k with a good grade of oil and sued the viscocity requied. The only time I heard of that kind of engine failure was when someone used 10W40. That is abig no no.

Anyway the mechanic is right, you need a new engine. Good luck
