You can try some Lucas Engine Oil Stop Leak. No promises that it is going to work but it is worth a try. Also Google lucasoil and check out the testimonials.

Well if the car burns that much oil,what is the problem

In my day ... don't ask when that was, If a car burnt 2qts a day it was called" Mosquito Control". I can't imagine 2 qts of oil being burned a day because the first cop to see you would impound your car so it has to be leaking it. There's only a couple places you could lose that much oil and maybe not notice it. If a car has what is called "blow-by" than your rings are worn causing pressure to build up inside the engine ... as the engine gets hot .. the oil gets thin enough to leak from either a pan gasket or a valve cover gasket. You did not say if you saw an unusual amount of oil anywhere on the engine. A valve gasket may leak toward the rear of the engine and sometimes id overlooked ... the other thing to look at is your oil pressure switch .. they can leak a lot of oil if they go bad. Put cardboard under the engine when you first get home and perhaps it will help you zero in ... Good Luck

Thanks
