Sounds like you need car repair because it could be fried piston rings.
The weekend was a bit of a downer. You and the kids had fun brunching with Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves, but getting there and back was a bit difficult because your car wasn’t acting quite right. Not only is it spewing white and gray smoke, it’s eating oil like crazy. As for pickup, well, Santa’s reindeer are quicker even when the sleigh is full. Those could be symptoms of many things. One is fried piston rings, those things that control oil pressure and oversee oil consumption.
“Worn or damaged engine rings will usually lead to a myriad of problems, and will require an engine repair,” says carsdirect.com.
