my car has been smoking bad for about a month going through 8 quarts of oil throughout the week. and i mean they would go empty the other day my car started shaking really really bad and at a red light would act like it wanted to stall . i change the valve gasket and the spark plugs but the spark plus valve seals we cant get out Any ideas how to get them out seems they are dry rotted . I took it to pep boys and they did the check engine light scan and said it was a misfire on #2 i was told a tune up would help anyone else fix the problem yet ? how'd you do it .
