Having problems with your 1995 Audi 90 ?

I'm thinking of buying a 1993 Audi, selling price is $500.00. I test drove the vehicle - nice ride and handling. The seller said that there was an oil leak, which she was putting in 1-11/2 quarts every couple weeks. I noticed after test-driving, that oil was dripping out of the tail pipe. There was no sign of a leak from the engine area on the ground where the car had been sitting. Any idea what's going on and why the car is using so much oil?

Answers :

Oil out of the exhaust would mean worn rings, worn valve stem seals or both. This would usually be accompanied by white smoke exiting the tailpipe. (mileage in the region of 100000miles plus??) Another explanation could be a cracked cylider head.
Repair entails an engine rebuild/replacement on all 3 possibilities. If you have a backyard mechanic handy you could always swop out the old engine with something from a breaker's yard although that presents a whole new set of problems as you never really know what you get.
