car makes a knocking noise

Dealer replied it needs engine mounts replaced ?? How pricey is this repair?

Our 2002 Altima was recently repaired for white smoke from exhaust - replaced the valve guides(1800$). After getting the car back we found the radiator was cracked at the top, but not before our daughter let it overheat. Repaired and cleaned the radiator. And realized we were 2 quarts low on oil after only 150 miles from the initial repair and oil change. Original mechanic put in a valve cleaner and said to run it about 500 miles. The car used 8 quarts of oil on that trip and black smoke started from exhaust. Now the mechanic says he gives up, can't figure what is wrong. Any ideas.

car burns oil i already checked pcv valve its ok any ideas on why engine burns oil real quickly any any fix on it

Pour some stop leak Luk but it did not stop. This happened after head gasket blow up.

fumes are coming inside can i plug the hole for now until i get money to replace the catalyst converter

can this be adjusted with a sensor

I changed the thermostat . Still the lower hose is ice cold.

My starter made a noise when cranking so i replaced it,the new starter did the same thing immediately, so i thought it was defective so i replace it. Now less than 1 day, less than 10 starts, it is making the same noise again. What could this be?? Help & thanks in advance.

02 Altima 2.5 4 cylinder. There is oil in my 3rd and 4th spark plug well. The engine will not turn over. When it was running it burned oil very quickly, about a quart per week. The oil smells like gas. Is there anything I can do to fix this and get it running again?

I changed the front struts on my car with some difficulty but I cannot figure out how to get to the rear shock/struts top mounting bolt to change them and they are wore out. Every diagram I have looked at shows my car having springs around the shocks on the rear just like the front but this is not accurate. There are no springs and it looks as if the top mounting bolt is located under the panel between the rear seat and the back glass. Please help me.
