Sounds like possibly a bad intake gasket? bad valve guides, or stuck piston rings...or many other possiblities..perhaps a bad PCV vavle.

It should still be under factory warranty

SOURCE: Burns through 1 quart of oil every 2000 miles.

After checking out alot of Honda/Acura forums I'm finding that many owners experience the same problem you are having. The best explanation I found was at 2carpros:
http://www.2carpros.com/forum/94-acura-legend-burning-oil-vt7734.html
From what I'm reading, only way to stop the oil loss is a new engine. If your car is running fine, I'd hesitate to change anything with the engine and stock up on oil.

SOURCE: Excessive Oil consumption, 2001 Isuzu Trooper, V-6, 94,000 miles

The Isuzu rep. says that it is normal for one to use a quart of oil every 750 to 1200 miles per. Isuzu motor co. I have worked for a dealer for over 15 years. I have seen a few of them come in with no oil in them because people never checked it. They thought they were good until the next oil change. Remember these vehicles have a 4.55 gear in the rear end and running 80 or faster on the highway it will be wound up tight.

My 2001 was having the same issue. I replaced the PCV valve and it fixed the problem. Total Cost 5.00. It is easily accesable but you may have difficulty finding it. It is located Left Rear Top of engine (Passenger side). Its brass and it screws in. I went online at my library and found diagram at this location. http://content.chiltonsonline.com/Repair/PrintView.aspx.

Burning oil 2001


Usually the problem is piston rings. But it could also be something going on with the PCV system.
It could even be something as simple as changing the brand or weight of oil you are using.
Two quarts of oil in 3000 miles is not a huge amount, so it may be tough to find the cause. One quart with every tank of gas would be alot.

If it's not leaking from the engine, and it's not being burned (blue smoke out the tailpipe), the only other place for it to go would be into the coolant system, but that would only happen with a bad head or head gasket. Do you have an overabundance of coolant?

I have a 91 Accord that is burning oil somehow but not a visible leak. The dipstick is dry after adding 3 quarts 3 days ago. What should I look for?


If there are no signs of a leak, you must be laying a smoke screen behind you as you drive. To burn three quarts in three days, even if you did 500 miles in that time you would still have visible smoke behind you and there would be signs of oil residue in your exhaust pipe.. Is this the first time that this has happened to you and did you put the oil in yourself or did somebody do it and charge you for oil you did not receive?

It is normal to use over a quart of oil before oil change


My 1993 voyager is like that. It may burn some , it definitely leaks some , and it could be just sending some through the PCV valve. Oil leaks and burning oil causes pollution . If you can fix it with a new seal or a valve cover gasket it is easier than constantly checking your oil. Temperature, trailering, speed, outdoor temperature, and engine RPM all can be factors if you are losing oil. If your engine is a quart down, the engine oil consumption rate doubles or triples. In other words the lower the oil level the faster it disappears. High mile cars will drive for years as long as you add oil when it is needed (keep the oil level between the marks). Fix any obvious leaks. Then determine your oil change interval (3000 miles, 4000 miles, 5000 miles). I change between 4000 and 5000 miles. If i am a quart low at 3500 I add a quart. If I am a quart low at 4500 miles I just change the oil in the car. A good practice is to carry a quart of oil in your vehicle just in case you need it. It is far cheaper to add a quart when needed than to go to the dealer once to maybe fix a problem that they may not be able to find or fix. Older engines (even some newer ones) just use oil , especially in hotter climates. Fix the obvious and carry a quart.

Excessive oil use


the time it takes to use one quart is not the figure I need, how many miles does three weeks represent? 1000 miles per quart is ok, less and you will need new rings in most cases, which of course means an engine overhaul.
