Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Trixi, Most likely you need to have some engine work done. You may need to replace piston rings or valve seals. If you take your vehicle to an ASE certified shop or dealership they should be able to diagnose this for you and give you a price to fix it, then you can decide if you want to keep the vehicle or not.
