I have a 1991 Toyota Corolla with 247,000 Km on it. It runs quite well and we use it for our 23 year old to learn on.
The problem is that the thing burns oil like nobody’s business. We don’t want to do an expensive engine overhaul however, and would like to know what you recommend as an oil additive that will stop the burning and extend the life of the car.

Dear Alhaji Babajide,
Sorry. There is no additive in this world that could stop burning oil in your engine. It’s an old car. Things like this happen, and there is no shortcut. Better do a cylinder head overhaul and replace those valve and valve seals, because those are the culprit to your problem. This is the only way to solve your problem if you are planning to own this car for another 5 to 10 years.
