SOURCE: Losing oil, no visible leaks. 120,000 miles

Hm. In my experience if you lose oil at the rate of 1 qt. per 800 mi. it's going somewhere. Actually, if you lose 1 qt. per 1000 mi. and change your oil every 3,000 mi. it's under $10 in oil you have to buy to keep it topped off, and some places say that's there's nothing wrong.

But, your case is a little more serious.

I think that it's probably leaking past the rings and/or valves and the catalytic converter is eating up the oil, so you see no blue smoke, like you would in a car that has no converter (I'm assuming you have a catalytic converter on your car as my 1981 Honda had).

After 100,000 mi. little irregularities in the piston cylinders can develop, and seals can gradually degrade. So, this is normal for that kind of mileage, although there are people who get over 400,000 mi. on their cars with just regular maintenance and driving highway mi.

You might want to try one of those slower burn oils designed for cars with 75,000 mi. and above. That might slow the burn off of oil down to acceptable levels.

Good luck with it.

Engine is making oil


An engine does not make oil, but it can spill the oil that should be inside. You could have an oil leak, which means that oil will be leaking from either the front or the rear oil seal. The front oil seal is just behind the crank pulley, the one that drives the fan / alternator belt. If oil is leaking from there, suspect the front seal.
If you have oil leaking from the bell housing, that the the bell shaped metal thingy between the engine and the gearbox. you can suspect the rear oil seal.
If you inspect the engine and see oil leaking from the oil pan under the engine, you have a leaking pan gasket. This can usually be solved by tightening the pan bolts, a whole lot of bolts underneath the engine.
Finally, and this is probably the worst, if you see oil around the breather pipe that goes from the valve cover on top of the engine to the gas intake system, you have leaking compression, that means either the valve stem seals are leaking or the compression rings are finished, and you will have to have the engine overhauled, or at the very least have the cylinder head overhauled.
If the rings are suspect, you will also have excessive smoke out of the exhaust when you drive, especially when you accelerate. Check the exhaust for signs of wet oil.

White smoke coming out exhaust


If the smoke is only when you first start it I would be looking at your valve stem oil seals, this is no serious problem to your driving and with the right gear and knowledge can be changed in car . But if your smoke is more constant than the story changes, your oil control rings have failed and this needs an engine overhaul. 2 things you need to remember is fuel burns black, oil burns white and head gaskets show visible problems, water or air leaks both external and internal so your mechanic may be correct

Taking off the head off is there a diegram or pic i can use


Blue smoke is oil being burned in the cylinders. It could be valves not seating properly, valve stem seals bad, possibly a head gasket if it blew where an oil passage may let oil in cylinders, or badly worn piston rings.
If you can afford it, have a shop do a leak-down test of each cylinder to pinpoint the problem. Then you may know if you need a new head gasket, or a valve problem fixed when head is off, or new valve stem seals replaced, or if rings are bad requiring engine overhaul.

WHEN STARTING WILL SMOKE HEAVY , ON THE NEXT TIME WILL NOT SMOKE,WHEN SMOKING HEAVY WILL CLEAR AFTER A LITTLE WHILE IT IS A 911 2.4 E 1973 . Motor has been overhauled , new bearings , heads ,new rings,...


I would think that the blueish smoke is most likely from the valve stem seals leaking. When they leak they allow a small amount of oil to pool on the top of the pistions. When you start the engine it will smoke for a little bit then it will clear up. I would look in to changing these, however it will require removal of the lifters, valve spring,ect. Another suggestion is to try running an oil thicking product such as Lucas Oil Treatment or NO SMOKE.

Oil leak


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Can you locate where the leak is coming from? As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you buy an overhauling gasket. The overhauling gasket covers every component that needs gasket. From valve cover to head and even on transmission oil seals.

Once you locate the leak you can start removing the parts that will require gasket replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 2001 Saturn L. Oil is leaking, it is not the head gasket. Tore engine apart and replaced gaskets. Stopped leaking for about 6-7 months and it started to leak again. Did oil change last week...


If you have no visible signs of oil leaking out of the engine then the oil is being burnt. By visible leaking I mean a small puddle of oil under the car after having been left overnight. This can be cured by replacing shaft seals and gaskets. Burning oil is visible as smoke under deceleration (no throttle) and under full power(flooring it). This is due to worn/old valve stem seals(smoke under deceleration) and worn oil rings(smoke under acceleration) This can only be cured by a major engine overhaul or engine replacement. Bear in mind that losing a pint of oil in 1000 miles is acceptable.
