Sorry to hear that. Did you have good pressure when you started it up? How often do you check your oil level? My car will burn about 1/2 a quart in 3000 or so. How much was in the motor after she died? Did you wreck the block? Details I know....but I like to know alll the details I can to diagnose the problems at hand easier.

Do you have crosslaced wheels? I need two centercaps. And for a good price another wheel or two.
