Default Honda civic troubles?

I have a 1997 4 cylinder Honda civic. It is not holding oil but I don't have smoke nor so I have a oil leak. Car was almost out of oil when my temp hand went all the way and then my car just quit. Put oil in my car started up for about a mile then quit again. Not sure what this means. Please help.!!!

You must check better for leaks and oil spraying out your exhaust. Put a clean cardboard under your car and let it idle for about 30min or more or until your car stops warming up. Securely tape a piece of paper so that it arcs around your exhaust and drive around for a bit and see if any oil got on the paper. Make sure not to completely block air passage when you do this. Off the top of my head, I would say your engine is burning oil or leaking so little that you do not notice. If the temp went all the way up, check your radiator and fluid.
