Tip & How-To about 2003 Audi TT

Oil consumption

Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.

my oil light cubs on and off and now my car is ticking when i turn it on what do i do


I am going to assume the engine has the right amount of oil in it. If so, start by hooking up a direct reading gauge at the oil pressure switch. If that reading is low then either the pump is bad or the screen is clogged. In either case, the oil pan will have to be removed. If the reading is normal then the oil galley is plugged up. I would start by doing and engine flush. When putting the new oil back in the engine replace one quart of oil with one quart of either Rislone or one quart of Marvel Mystery Oil. Let us know what happens.

2004 pontiac grand prix 71000 milesis burning oil. no leaks no smoke


How many miles do you go before you have to add oil. GM actually states that one quart of oil every 2000 miles is considered normal. I personally think that one quart every 3000 miles is normal esp at higher miles. As an engine wears things such as valve seals and rings get worn and allow oil to seep past and will burn, this can be in such small amounts that you will not notice the smoke and is normal engine wear. The life cycle of an engine is considered 100k miles by the designers, even though we all know they will go far beyond that. If your car has the 3.1 or the 3.4 liter engine you may want to check in the engine coolant for signs of oil, it is a common problem for the oil to seep into the cooling system but is not usually enough to make a noticable drop in oil level. If you are only using about one qt every 3k miles or so i would not worry about it if you have had it checked for leaks already.

1 quart every 2000 miles. Not all cars are created equal. The same model may burn alot less or even more.
