Sometimes it dont start and runs good but sometimes i get stranded wont start now repaired head gasket changed oil 3 different thermostats not allowing water from radiator
I took my Nissan in to get the oil changed and was told that there was a pretty bad leak. Took it to a local mechanic and had the valve gasket cover replaced along with a few other things like spark plugs and tie rods. Almost 3 weeks later I notice a puff of white smoke coming out of the back of the car when I crank it after it’s been sitting all day. I checked my oil the next morning and it’s bone dry. I got the oil filled again and took it back to the mechanic. They say it’s not leaking but maybe burning oil so keep a check on it the next few weeks. It’s been a week and a half since I got oil put back in and my oil is still full. The only thing I can think is that the mechanic did not put oil back in after doing the repair like they were supposed to. Are there any other possible explanations?
The knock sounds like a standard rod knock but it is not that. The knock is at about 10 knocks per second but only knocks 5 to 10 times then stops. After listening to the knock happen 4 times on the second cycle is sounded like a thermostat click on then the knock then nothing for 20 seconds then the knock then nothing for 20 or 30 sec and repeat
All the sudden car won't start but will turn over the battery is drained and the headlights and parking lights came on by their cells for a few minutes and then went off without turning the switch this all happened all of a sudden no prior problems

Step on gas stuters a minute then slowly acts like normal till step on to pass. Fuel pump just changed . Not sure if it is fuel pressure regulator or what .
