Sorry for your loss Melinda, If,as you say,it wasn't leaking and there wasn't an excess of smoke coming out the exhaust that would signify burning it away...very little of motor oil evaporates and it dose this very slowly, much slower than does water. its the aromatic hydrocarbons that evaporate, the lighter molecules leaving the heavy molecules full of contaminants. Sludge. This process is very slow. But if it didn't leak out ,Burn away and very little of motor oil evaporates, then your oils still there. Its in the form of sludge. As to your oil light..... There's a reason their called idiot lights.

8000 over is not good. You lose some oil to what is called "blow by". This is when oil pushed by the rings around the pistons. This is a slow process but over time you could lose a bit and not notice any smoke. Also over time oil breaks down when not changed often causing a lot of it to stick to enternal parts of the engine which could be why you didnt get a light. Just some thoughts, sorry about your troubles

SOURCE: engine seized no oil did not get check oil or check engine light

The oil pressure warning light only comes on when oil pressure drops below 4psi at this moment there is no oil in the engine most often it does not get to this point because oil, water etc is checked every week. It could be your engine was using oil which would point to an engine fault.

SOURCE: engine blowing oil from oil filler cap

I had the same problem. I changed the pcv valve and checked the hose. It still did the same thing. Then I checked the metal tubing that the hose connects to and found it was full of hardened gunk. I sprayed PB Blaster into the tube let it soak for awhile. Then took an old choke cable, put it on a drill and ran it into the tube like a drain snake. It took a while of doing this over and over but eventually got it cleared out. Now, no more oil all over the engine and hood compartment.

SOURCE: engine light on, heavy smoke and engine burning smell (Audi 1.8T)

First off, how the Hell did they issue a DOT Cetificate, if the Emissions are known to be off the clock. Without causing stress, do you have, or can obtain the Emission Test Result Print Out from the Testing Station test Equipment. This is something they cannot refuse. DO NOT AUTHORISE ANY REPAIRS Come back TO ME with your story.
Regards,DT

Check the oil fill cap and the radiator cap, see if you have a milky scum accumulation on either one, can indicate a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder where the oil is burning and allowing water intothe hot cylinder which causes white smoke to be emmitted from tailpipe.

SOURCE: 2004 Mazda3 - 135k - engine seized up with no oil but changed reg

My sons mazda 3 did the same thing 97 days after he bought it. The dealership changed the oil and did an inspection atleast thats what they said. When he came home he had me go out and listen to this loud ticking noise and he then took it to have the oil checked and they said there wasn't any. Where did 4 or 5 quarts go? Thank You,... Medina Mazda and Volkswagon for not covering it 97 days after you sold it.

Stop light came on and car cut out. Oil fine. Engine appears to have seized up, any ideas ??


If oil level fine but engine seized then it could be either oil pressure low or oil not pumping around engine due to oil pump failure or engine overheated, water pump failure or radiator fans failing!

Sounds like you may have a bad piston ring. Get a compression test done and that will tell you if the ring is bad or not. Also, try using a product called seafoam in your engine. The seafoam will clean your engine out very well.

My 2004 Rx330 is showing maintenance required at 65,500 miles. I purchased the car used at 39,000 miles all I have done is changed the oil every 5,000 miles. What do you think the maintenance requirement...


a major service is due at 60000 miles. the light is just a reminder that maintenance is due. is it the message on the nav screen or the one on the dash cluster? if you want to turn it of, hold the trip/od button in while turning the ignition on, keep your foot off the brake, dont start the car. you will see dashes flashing where the od shows miles, hold until its done flashing. and the lite on the dash cluster will go out. it will come back on after 5000 miles. you can go online to lexus.com to review what the services are and what they involve.

My 2005 Endeavor with 60000 km burns 1 litre of oil every 1000 km at highway speeds, about half that around town. Is this a normal occurrence or is there a problem with the motor?


Not normal, clean burning engine, mine has 220,000 kms's. Are you using a full synthetic oil? Tried it a couple times and it took 1 litre between oil changes. I use semi synthetic oil, no issues. How long has it been burning this amount of oil? Get to your dealer and have him fix your engine.
