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.

If it doesn't leak or it doesn't burn than you have defied the laws of Physics

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
