so i changed my oil like 650 miles ago and since then i have burned 1/2 a quart. when i gas it, i get some black and blue smoke out the exhaust. also, under my hood there is a streak of what i think to be is oil and i might have a leak. i dont have the time to check it right now so if ther is something under there i will just close this question. but if anyone can help at all, please let me know. thanks in advance!

how many miles does your car have? depending on the amount of wear to the block, you may need new piston rings... and the streak on the hood may not be oil, it could also be debris from the belts being slung up there

it jsut rolled over 140000 when i changed my oil. its at like 140675 or so now. my grandpa said that it isnt too bad to burn only 1 quart for every 1300 miles but i think it is.
