Two small rubber pieces fell from top of auxiliary box in front of center console. Cannot determine how to fit them back on so door "snaps" open as is supposed to. Just kinda lays there now. Fortunately, if this is my biggest prob with this car, I'm doing OKAY!
#62 of 62 2007 TOY-SOLARA 2DR COUPE SE 4CYL. LOSING/BURNIN LRG AMOUNT OF OIL FAST !!!

">"I have a 2007 Toyota Solara 4-C SE 2-door Coupe which for over the past year has been burning tons of oil quickly I get an oil change and in less than 2K miles it's burned 3-4 quarts already. no dripping in driveway, no smoking or smell of oil burning, it just disappears and every 2K miles about I need to add 3-4 quarts. I took to Toyota Dealership for Diagnostic Eval. they kept over night, came back the next day they told me the entire Engine needed rebuilding and it would cost me $3-$4K dollars for a 2 week job. I said forget it and left. That sounds like BS to me, anyone have any idea where this oil is going and why? ALSO how do I fix it, without having to add 3-4 quarts more oil about every 2K miles??? I also lost about on average 10 MPG in gas MPG since this problem started. I get only about 20 MPG when I was getting 30+ over a year ago for same MPG but oil was not burning up like it is now. Any ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I hit 100K miles in 2K more miles on this 2007 Toy-Solara SE 4-C 2-door Coupe and no way am I investing anything even close to $3-$4K into a rebuilt engine , that is nuts. Please reply here-
BTW I get my Oil Sig. Oil Change done every 3 K-4-K miles now at Jiffy Lube since as long as you go in prior to sticker mileage for next oil change they have to give you a free 'Top-Off' Service so after every 1.5K.5K - 2.5K Miles I go in and they add 3-4 quarts of oil to an almost bone dry engine , all the oil has burned off by than or disappeared??
