Actually wen i got home i checked and the oil was very low. the thing about it is that less then a month ago i put 4 bottles of oil in it and they were all gone. plus there is alot of white smoke that comes out of the cams wen i open them to add oil. All this started to happen after i changed the altenator.

Well wen i got home, i checked so i drove it about 40 miles with very little oil. but wen i added oil it workd just fine for a couple of mins then it started to blanked the streets full of smoke. O yea one more thing there is a little hole in my exhaust at the end were that bucket is right before the exhaust ends.

Is your check engine light on? I had some of the same symptoms that your having when my O2 sensor went out. But if that was the case with you, your CEL would be on.

If you were reading an oil level on the dipstick that was "at the lowest level possible" there is no way you were four quarts low on oil. If you were four quarts low on oil, there would be NO oil on the dipstick at all. Four quarts low is practically out of oil. And if you were four quarts low on oil, your engine has problems.

If this is true this car is looking at a engine rebuild or a new engine all together. The problems that have been stated will require major engine work no matter what. This is not for a novice.

Good luck sir!
