Question about 2005 Ford F-150

1 Answer

Oil consumption my 2002 ford f-150 uses about 1 quart of oil for every 3,000 miles. About 2,000 miles ago, when I would remove the oil fill cap with the engine running, the truck would go to a low idle and eventually just shut off. Now if I remove the oil cap, the engine immediatly just shuts off. I have tried this with the engine cold and hot, does the same thing. I have tried to add engine restore on an oil change but does not help. Any ideas???

They say that that is normal to burn some oil. I use Moble 1 full synethic oil, and it quit using oil, because synethic will not burn.

Correct oil weight needed...


I recommend you stay with the 10w40. It' more important that you keep diligent and change the oil at 3,000 miles or 3 months!

I'm sorry, but that is horrible and wrong. It isn't normal to use a quart every...


Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.

Dear Sirs, I own Pathfinder 2006. Recently Oil goes out from MAX mark to MIN mark within 8000 km (5000 miles). My dealer tells me that this is regular consumption which is confirmed by NISSAN officials....


  • Well MAX to MIN on the dipstick is a quart of oil in difference. You need to have the oil changed every 3,000 miles (5,000 miles for a synthetic). I don't think that a 2006 Nissan should burn a quart of oil every 5,000 miles. That seems a bit absurd. For much older vehicles this might be true but for a 2006, much more efficient vehicle, it should not burn a quart every 5.000 miles.

Loosing engine oil,don't know ware it's going


Whenever I encounter an engine that's missing oil I always start with the basics. First I take a good look underneath and check for any drips, no matter how small, as a leaky sending unit, oil filter, or cooler line won't leak once the engine is off. If you can park on the same spot, preferably over a clean piece of cardboard, it makes it a lot easier to spot any drips. If no drips are present then I change engine oil and filter using a top grade oil and fill the level to exactly the full mark on the dipstick. I do this because most engines will burn oil if the oil is dirty and old enough. At that point I check the oil every 100 miles or so [after the engine has been off for a few minutes] and see how long it takes before the engine is a quart low or down to the "Add" mark. Once you have this information then you can decide what or if you need to do anything. As for what's normal oil consumption? Most vehicles won't use a quart in a 3,000 mile service interval but I've seen new vehicles that take a quart every 1000 miles or so, thus there's really no good solid answer although I think a quart per thousand is excessive...but often expensive to fix if it's actually burning it. Hope this helps and good luck!

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.

Lost engine oil: 2002 Ford F150 Supercrew 4x4 5.4l engine


This is certainly one of the strangest things I have ever heard as a mechanic. . This almost sounds like some one is playing a game of letting your oil out this vehicle. With no visible leaks no burning smell of oil. However I would recommend that you check the coolant in the radiator and see if the oil is in the coolant. (If they are mixing together) If they are mixing the coolant should have a milky look to it, creamish white. If its good then the only other logical explanation is that the vehicle i s burning alot of oil, but if that was true you would see a grayish blue smoke from tail pipe. If you are 100% sure they are no oil leaks on this vehicle, then this problem is surely strange. Check coolant and get back to me. Good Luck
