You should have the compression checked to see if the cylinders are in good shape. When a deisel starts to use oil, it burns it as it would fuel. The mot test is o/k because your emission system is working well. Hope this helps.Moe

SOURCE: Similiar prblem with my F-150 Super Crew.

I would go with a cylinder leak down test. Sounds like bad rings, if the valve seals are good. Personally, I would have parked it At 30,000 and figured it out. Got to carboned up good by now and don't know how you could ever pass inspection unless your in a state that doesn't do emission testing. Did you check mfg bulletins? What's with the clunking any ideas?

SOURCE: Why would my 2004 freestar allof a sudden start

Start by pulling the spark plugs and inspect them for evidence of oil burning. They will be particularly black and some may even be oily. Finding several oily plugs is better than finding one. Also stop to run your finger in the end of the tail pipe, black sooty is normal, black oily is not.

If you have several plugs that are oily, you may have a valve seal oil leak issue. This is can be an expensive repair depending on how it is done. Most shops will remove the heads and work them on a bench. These can be done on the vehicle with the right procedures.

If you have only one that is oily you may have a broken oil ring in one cylinder. This will require complete disassembly of the motor to verify the broken ring. At this point you are basically rebuilding the motor.

Is there anything I could add to reduce oil burning in my 2009 Audi A4

A4 always requires adding oil before it is due for an oil change, but only a few hundred miles is excessive. I buy 5 qts when it is on sale. Do you notice any leaks in garage?

2008 Silverado 5.3 liter engine is consuming a lot of oil, why?

The short answer is, if there are no external leaks, the engine has to be burning it thru the rings, crankcase vent, or valves.
You could burn a quart a week and not see any evidence until it builds up on the spark plugs over time.

Burns oil/no leaks/1qt a month/past 3 years

unfortunatly this is extremely common on saturn s series vehicles
i have 10 years experience with saturns and the only way to fix it for good is to replace the engine
at the saturn dealer we would attempt this fix several different ways engine rebuilds with new pistons,rings,bearings,etc.
we also put used engines in them-sometimes it would work-it always depended on how old and how many miles the used engine had o it. my advice is to either get rid off the car before the engine locks up or religiously check the oil once a week
i had a 2002 corolla that burned 4 qts of oil a week but still got 33 mpg,i kept oil in it and it ran great
