    How often do you change your oil? I mean pull the plug and change filter not fill up when it's empty and making noise
    That seems a little excessive to me. I changed the oil every 12k kms and sometimes the car would take 1/2l(qt) between changes. The engine has almost 386k kms(240k miles).
    Check your air filter and spark plugs, they're probably caked in oil. Your catalytic converter will probably be plugging up too. Do you have smoke/excessive pressure if you remove your oil cap with the engine running?

    Hi, thank you for helping. The oil was changed at every 20 000km service at Mitsubishi. The garanti ended at 100 000 km. Its now on 122 000 km. I have refilled twice in 22000 km. Last time it was dry. The plugs is changed, and were fine. Strange this.
