Check your cap, rotor, and spark plugs... Might have fouled or almost fouled a few causing it not to burn as much fuel/oil as it use to.

i got the same problem. mine turned out to be the MAP sensor. it also may be the throttle position sensor. Is the check engine light on??

if it runs too rich for too long, your plugs will foul and it won't start, then you gotta take em' all out again and clean em up. so it's better to diagnose the problem now.

nope the check engine isnt on but theres this wierd 'puff puff puff' every once n while when n idle comin from the exhaust, i hate this thing i might jus save up for a new car ne way cuz it needs a shitload of things i originally bought it for 300 but must have put n like twice as much for repairs it needed, n/e other advise would be helpfull
