Car burning oil and shutting off

Asked by Oct 26, 2018 at 12:34 AM about the 2007 Pontiac G5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car is burning through oil really
fast. Engine begins to smoke and
every single time I stop it is shutting
off completely but starting right back
up again. Do not want to scrap it and
get another car but it’s my son’s car
and I may have to. Please please help

Engine is worn out. Car isn't worth the price it would take to replace engine with a used one. If you're attached to this car, go ahead and get a used engine; at least you know everything about the rest of the car, providing that's OK.
