      alright here is the issue im going through a qourt of oil every 2,000miles it started doing this about a month ago after i changed my spark plugs. every place i park there is no oil puddles and i have no oil burning like no smoke from the tail pipe and the spark plugs have no black on them . i looked for a leak cant find one. do you think it can be leaking oil only when im driving? and does anyone have an idea on where my oil is going? i have a 2000 golf with the 2.ol manul trans

      its leaking past your rings and being burned off... it doesnt just disappear. try a thicker oil and get a compression test done.

      these motors are famous for burning oil, and you may not actually see it.
      Tradition is the art of making the same mistake repeatedly, on purpose.
