I am having a problem with my Toyota Corolla 2001. I do not know were the engine oil goes, I have the oil changed every 3000 miles but when I check the oil dip stick there is no oil and then the oil lamp comes on. I check for leaks and my car does not leak oil.. the vehicle was checked by the dealer and they said nothing was wrong with it but I still get the check oil lamp in dashboard. Where does the oil go?

When traveling down hill with the dealer installed cruise control on, vehicle will chug as if it is losing power or out of gas. Also, when it's raining. When vehicle is traveling on an incline, tires will spin. Cruise control will decelerate. Consumer states headlights are adjusted too low, hesistation feeling when traveling slightly down hill, dealer adjusted throttle cable but condition still exsists.
