Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Toyota MR2 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 135000 miles
After finding out a used car that we just purchased just had a new engine put in at 127K miles, with only 7K on engine, it is consuming oil. The dealership first said was out of warranty, which it wasn't, then said Toyota engine warranty was non-transferable, which it was, then said original owner didn't get oil changed within first 7k of new engine, which she did. Now they're just stonewalling-BUT, as I'm going through litigation with them, what could be causing this oil comsumption problem now that we know its a new short block? After getting back from dealership, white smoke does come out after sitting a while (they said it was condensation), but still running like a gem. No leaks, all 3 compression tests were fine, no burning oil smell. Could they have done something wrong when replacing other engine? This engine supposedly came directly from Toyota. HELP?
