First of all, this is most likely about a ZJ right?

Second, I would be worrying about why it was 4 quarts low. If it was ran for a long time with only like 2 quarts in it, the engine might be toast.

Either way, doesn't sound good.... .... where did the oil go? major leak that wasn't detected or seen? and how long was it run like that. Not good if its smelling burnt at all.
