    Then you probably haven't been changing the oil every 3,000 miles or every 5,000 miles if using synthetic oil. Have you been checking the oil level every 1,000 miles between oil changes? If the oil level drops more then half way between the upper and lower dipstick marks you wear the piston rings and motor bearings out!

    My car (a Saturn) started burning so i followed instructions to add Marvel Myster Oil to it and shorten the intervals between changes. I now no longer even need to check the oil level between changes. It holds up. MMO clean up the ring grooves.

    It is unlikely that a car with low mileage like that would have worn rings. If it is losing oil I would be looking for other issues like oil pan leaks, a loose drain plug or oil filter, a blocked PCV valve, cracked head, etc...

    Try ENGINR RESTORE for 4 cylinder, available at auto parts store or walmart.

      Look at the spark plugs

    If your question is why you don't see it leaking, or smell burning, you won't. When the engine burns oil it just comes out of the exhaust and you usually won't notice it.

    Sounds like engine is worn out. I would just live with it and keep adding oil unless you can find a low mileage engine and swap it in but that might cost more then the car is worth.

    I've replace the coils and spark plugs.

    2007 vehicles are too old and junky. We have 4 vehicles from 2019
