Oil expenditure

Toyota RAV4 2006  60000 miles
My car has started wasting oil without any reason, it does not burn it nor throw it away. It is almost a quarter of a liter that I'm adding every week to it.

Rattle on startup

Toyota RAV4 1994  95000 miles
Engine rattle on startup as If no oil pressure, more so on cold starts, was told was due to oil filter draining out as position of filter faces down.as if no non return valve. Have fitted OEM filter incase. Motor has had Complete cam kit fitted and reconditioned head. Rattle goes away fast but doesn’t seem right,and sure this wouldn’t be like this when new. Sugestions appreciated as hate hearing the noise.

Damaged engine

Toyota RAV4 2005  150000 miles
I own a Rav 4, and I have recently hit in the inferior part of the engine, breaking both the carter and the oil pump. It was repaired but not completely, as all of the indicators now turn on, such the ABS and the tire pressure one. Car rings have been changed twice and the main problem now is that, as I reach 3000 revolutions, it starts failing. I have now disconnected the sensor. Does anyone know what can be happening? I was told the cause could be the oxygen sensors, the ABS sensor, and even the automatic transmission. Please help me
