This could also be caused by a clogged PCV system which is common on these cars especially the 7mge. Pull the oil fill cap with the engine running. If you have a lot of pressure comming out you probably have what is called "blowby". If you have much blowby it will push oil out of anyplace that doesn't have a positive seal, that could include the distributor shaft. If you have that much blowby, the rings are worn and the only option is to rebuild or replace the engnine.

Leaking or loosing coolant? If it is leaking then where is the leak? If it is just loosing coolant with no apparent leak, then you more than likely have a blown head gasket or cracked head. If there is coolant in the oil, or white sweet smelling smoke coming from the exhaust you definitely have an internal problem. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue to drive this vehicle.
