Oil consumption engine runs very well good power no smoke out tail pipes


So how many miles are you getting per litre of oil?

If there is no smoke and you are getting better than 750 miles of mixed driving with no sustained high speeds per litre it would hardly be economic to carry out repairs to improve it, apart from the usual checks for external leakage, the engine breather, turbo seals and ensure the oil pumped to the valve gear can drain back to the sump quickly enough. A build up of sludge can restrict this.

If all is ok and the consumption is too high it is usual to replace the valve stem oil seals as a first step.

I need to know how much oil to put in buss Toyota coaster model 2007 can help I would be grateful many thanks


Most small diesel engines run 6 litres in the sump so start with 5 litres and check the dip stick Continue to add until the full level is reached.. Check after short run (1-2 minutes) and top up if necessary

WE DRAINED 2 1/2 LTRS OF OIL OUT DURING AN OIL CHANGE AND PUT 2 LTRS BACK IN, ITS NOW SAYING ON THE DIP STICK THAT ITS OVER FULL, WE EVEN TOOK THE SUMP PLUG OUT AT THE BOTTOM AFTER THE ENG WAS WARM BUT NO OIL RAN OUT!! CANT UNDERSTAND IT, CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE?


Could be that it needs to run, if you changed the oil filter also, you removed a full filter and put on an empty one. Could be that the often-present-on VW's plastic ring on the dip stick tube is broken, causing the dipstick to more fully insert. Check the specifications. Was the car parked differently? Uphile or downhill will cause a different reading, perhaps the before reading was inaccurate.

I do not have a manuel could someone tell me how much oil is required when changing a 2.2 engine.


Generally in the 5 to 6 litre (quarts) range. Put in 4 litres and check on dip stick. Add remainder half a litre at a time checking the dip each time. The volume of oil required to be added to go from "MIN" mark on the dip stick to "MAX" is just half a litre.
