Although I have never had oil consumption in that range, I recall having seen someone whining about Saturn (I HATE SATURNS) while I was looking for a potential class-action lawsuit and they were using a quart every ~ 1500 miles on a car with some 20-30,000 miles and were also told that this was 'in the right range.'
That may be an indication of wear causing oil loss so it bears close watching.

My Saturn, purchased new, dropped a rod cap at 57,600 miles after eating thousands of dollars for many other failures. I would have been glad to see a 100k on it before it died . . .

Bought certified BMX 335i convertible and after only 3000 miles of driving the low oil light is on. Is this normal oil consumption or is there a problem?


Though I am not familiar with the 2007 model, on the e46s, I know that the low oil light comes on when you are down only about 1/2 quart. Does your model have a dip stick?
A half quart in 3000 miles is not cause for concern. Most of them burn a bit less than that, at least during the first 200k miles, but some burn more. It depends to some extent what kind of oil you are using. It will burn more Mobile1 than it will Castrol Syntec, for example.
I have an '04 330 that uses about a half quart in 7k miles between oil changes, and an '04 325 that goes through a quart every thousand miles. I am only a little concerned about the 325. I would not be at all concerned about a half quart in 3k miles.

Toyota tundera v6 ran for fifty miles 2 quarts low on engine oil! dave


Probably didn't hurt it, my 2002 was ran for 2000 miles 1 1/2 quarts low on oil due to dummies putting only 5 quarts of oil back in it after changing the oil. It takes 6 1/2 quarts. It didn't hurt it at all.

Using to much oil a 2002 accent with 76k. uses about a quart every 1k miles. dop i need to adjust the valves?


That's within acceptable limits according to Hyundai Motor America's standard: For a proper diagnosis, the amount of oil consumed over a known mileage should be checked three times and then averaged.The accumulated mileage divided by the total amount of oil added will give the consumption rate in miles per quart. If the oil consumption rate is greater than 1 quart per each 1000 miles, further diagnosis may be required.

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.
