Why would you think that?

No vehicle uses much oil at all--for over four months
& several thousand miles between oil changes

You have potentially serious oil consumption issues
or leaks

SOURCE: Burning over a quart of oil every two weeks

you more than likely have some bad rings.

Go to autozone and buy a bottle of Lucas oil treatment, and add it to the oil, if this does not solve the problem you will need an engine rebuild.

SOURCE: The clock in my Volkswagen Touareg is wrong.

On your steering wheel there is a button bottom right it should look like two squares. That is the menu button. Scroll through the menu settings until Time appears. Push in on the thumb wheel above the menu button to select. After that roll the wheel up or down to adjust the time and press in when finished.

oil consumption is normal on BMW's especially if you drive the car hard and especially if it is still cold.

SOURCE: oil usage

Hi there,

I would suggest using a full synthetic, 5W40. I would use a oil system cleaner, prior to the oil change. let it run in vehicle for 10 - 15 mins or so in the old oil, then i would do the change over, to the synthetic 5w40

SOURCE: Burning alot of oil.

Have a compression test done, that will tell you a lot there. If there is smoke out the tailpipe most likely the oil rings are gone.Or pull the spark plugs and see if there oil soaked. Oil on the oxygen senser can trip the light to come on.

15000kms is a lot of mileage and i would expect it to burn some oil in this period ,i would suggest that oil is changed every 6000kms with a oil filter every third oil change ,use the cheapest oil you can buy from supermarket for a petrol/turbo diesel engine and you will never have problems with the internal workings of the engine caused by clagging up of black hard carbon

Hi i have a 318i bmw 2001 my fuel consumption is

Last month, my wife complained of high gas usage as well. I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to change the air filter the last time I did the oil change. It had been over 5 months since I'd put a new one in. So, we got a new air filter, and monitored the usage, and it was back to normal again. Maybe try this?

I had the oil changed and the manual transmission fluid changed 2-3 days ago. I noticed leaking today on the right front tire side. A few hours ago it died. Still has power (lights, radio) but...

I don't believe the transmission fluid being changed would have anything to do with the engine being dead. You could have a tranny with no fluid in it and the engine would still run. Wondering if your engine oil got changed correctly. I would pull out the dipstick for the engine oil and see how much is in there. If this is an error from an oil change place that has caused your engine to die because of their negligence, then you may have a legal issue on your hands. Good Luck.
