I have a 1997 Toyota RAV4 with 137,500. I got it in 2004 with 93,000 miles. Since I’ve had it, it burns about 1 quart of oil every 1,000 miles or so. I don’t think it’s been getting worse since I’ve had it. I had the compression in the cylinders checked last year, and the compression’s good in all four of them. Any ideas what the problem might be? It the problem worth repairing, or should I just keep adding a quart of oil every 1,000 miles? Also, does burning oil damage other parts of the car?
Thanks for the help!
