...car was burning oil. The engine rebuild was about $1400 when my car is only worth maybe $3K as far as the Blue Book is concerned, but it has been my car for 15 years and is totally otherwise reliable.

$1.4k would buy an awful lot of oil.... and even a tercel trunk has room for a couple of cases!
