Bit too pricey for me - $1000 for only 12 mos. on a 1994. I'd rather pocket
the money and use it if needed, at that price I'd come out ahead to avoid

I have a 1988 BII Eddie Bauer 2.9l 4x4.

Just recently the oil light came on, so I put a half quart in. light off.
It only took 4 days to go back on again, where i put the second half of the
quart in. light off.

I assume that it is burning oil.. why? I notice that when I start the car,
a short puff of smoke exits the exhaust, after that it is fine. Other than
that, I have no clue.
I went to check the oil level, but when i tried to yank the dipstick, the
entire tube came out. It's totally loose. I will get that repaired, but is
it a big problem in the meantime? Can I continue to drive with this

My BroncoII also is ticking. I have payed more attention to this problem
lately. There are minutes when it does not tick at all, and then others
where it's very noticeable. Somedays i'll start the car and it will tick
right from the start, other times it will take a few minutes. As of late it
has been getting louder. Any ideas what's the cause?

I've noticed that when driving along a normal road (which includes the
occasional bumps and grooves), i hear something rattling on the left side.
I've gotten under the car and I can't find anything loose. any ideas with
this one?

When I make 90 degree turns to the right, after turning back straight, I
feel a drag/rumbling noise coming from the rear right tire. any help with
that one would be apriciated.

Thanks for the help!
