Yes I know 'wrong forum' and all that, but you lot know your stuff and I think the principle will be the same!
Mate at works bought a 2000 W 1.6 Fiesta Zetec with 65,000m on it.
Its been running fine but using loads of oil - half a litre a week (300 miles)
A local garage says the piston rings are absolutely knackered.
Now given that hes just bought a can't afford any major engine work what do you reckon he can do about it? Keep topping it up and it may go on forever or change the oil and filter and try and part ex it?
cheers in advance - andy
