My Mondeo MK3 is used a lot of engine oil it has no leaks that I can find anywhere and it doesn't smoke at all please help thanks


A useful method of testing for smoke I have used many times for engines using oil "but not smoking" is a follows.

Check and top up the oil level and then go for a drive to warm up the engine.

Find somewhere to park that is well shaded from breeze and where folk won't be annoyed.

Raise the engine speed to around 2500/3000rpm and hold it at that speed for as long as it takes - usually just a few minutes but maybe a little longer...

The intention is to duplicate the road condition when excess oil consumption is likely to take place but without the slipstream that renders it invisible. Virtually every engine I have tested in this way initially produces no smoke but after a minute or two of sustained constant high engine speed a thin trickle of smoke begins that rapidly thickens until the scenery disappears.

Locating the reason is another trick entirely. Breather problems can contribute to oil consumption and if oil pumped to the camshafts and valve gear can't drain back into the oil pan quickly enough, the level in the cam housings will rise and overcome even relatively healthy stem seals, though faulty valve stem seals is probably the most common cause of excess oil consumption.

My 2015 Isuzu Dmax 3 litre diesel auto 4x4 dual cab done 22500km is and has always used engine oil. Currently after 12000 km oil is down dipstick by 30-35mm. Total k's 22500. No towing is it normal


Its not normal to use any noticeable amount of oil between services these day's.

I would contact the dealership you purchased the vehicle from, and inform them of the oil consumption, they will have you monitor the level for a period of time.

Also, have you been using the correct grade of engine oil.

I would also check your turbo oil seals, and general check of engine for leakage.

Is the engine being filled with correct amount of oil, as some dipsticks can be out of calibration, causing overfilling and oil consumption down to correct level, something to check also.

How much oil should normally be burnt on a Peugeot 207. 2007. 1.6 L auto. 5 door hatch if motor is in very good cond between oil changes (have done approx. 5000kms)


Anon, You really should look in your manual or contact manufacturer to find what is considered normal oil consumption. I have never owned a Peugeot, but have had numerous other makes, mostly domestics to USA and Canada and never had to add oil between changes at approx. 5000 Km.s before oil changes.

Why would the oil light stay on?


That depends on the type of oil warning light being displayed. There are 2 types of warning lights

1. Low oil pressure light which all cars have
2. low oil level light which some cars have.

Low OIL PRESSURE warning means the oil pressure is below minimum and when this happens there will be insufficient lubrication of many engine parts because sufficient oil cannot get to all parts of the engine it is required to lubricate. Until the cause is identified and rectified the warning light will remain. If you run your engine with low oil pressure you will cause expensive damage to internal engine components.

Low OIL LEVEL warning means the oil in the sump has dropped to a dangerously low level (which may be due to an oil leak or abnormal oil consumption by the engine.) This warning means the oil level needs to be topped up and the warning will stay displayed until you top up the oil. Running the engine with low oil will cause expensive engine damage.
Since it is a 2 minute job, Oil levels should be checked fortnightly as a minimum, together with radiator coolant and power steering fluid levels, if you run the car most days each week as most people do.

It is possible for a warning light to remain displayed when the cause has been dealt with because there is a problem with the sender unit. However it needs to be established with alternative checks that the problem has been fixed before investigating if there is a problem with the warning light itself.

Engine oil consumption one liter per 3000 KM.


It depends on why/where the oil is going. The following discussion presumes there are no visible leaks, Be sure and check the drain hole on the bell housing for oil leakage.

If you are using a low viscosity non-synthetic oil, and are in a hot climate, and you routinely drive at freeway speeds, up to 15% of the oil will evaporate!!
The rate it is using is not 'excessive', and is no concern unless it increases over time.
It is actually PREFERRED (for long engine life) to have some consumption requiring fresh oil addition between changes.
Another sneaky cause can be a mis-marked dipstick leading to overfilling the crankcase. Next oil change, carefully note the oil level after running a few minutes, letting it sit 5 minutes then checking--with ONLY the manual stated quantity (use only the amount specified)
You might try running the oil level near the minimum level to see if the rate of use decreases.

Is it normal for my 2013 subaru xv crosstrek to have excessive oil consumption?


Yes that is normal, Subaru failed to tell customers of the oil consumption, if you go to your Subaru dealer they will fill oil to level & tell you to come back in 1200 miles time, they use 1quart every 1200 miles

My engine oil pressure gauge is showing 73psi at idle and as I drive it goes up to 90psi under 2oooRPM.. both the computer and gauge read the same psi.. Can I drive like this? What is the solution?


That is normal, many vehicle normal pressure is 50 psi and minimum is 15. The pressure you have is good,Its high but good,some high oil pressure will cause the lifter to solidify and then a misfire will occur, and again this is very rare.many oil pump in yester year car was driven by a worm gear attatch to a distributor, and it is still but without the distributor. So the oil pump is driven the same way and is monitored by the oil pressure sensor,(when oil pressure is low the light will go off then you would know you got a problem). The faster the car is driven the more lubrication its going to need so the oil is buid up at the same time engine demands are high. You dont have anything to worry about enjoy the car come on its a Corvette. Just make sure the level is good and change when its needed.

Oil consumption, ...new crate motor, and seeing a


disconnecting the oil cooler is just the wrong thing to even think about,what do you think your going to improve by getting the oil hotter and no way to cool it down while your driving at 3000rpms.after the oil system is full the oil in the cooler is already accounted for,just check your oil level when the engine is cold,

2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times. 12,500 miles, 21,290 miles 27,216 miles (dealer replaced head), 33,500 miles & 42,100 miles. Dealer claims nothing wrong with occasional low oil!! only...


There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

I have a 2009 Honda Pilot. It has 14775K miles on it. We have been using the oil indicator light to dictate when to change the oil. We have only replaced it once. We used Mobile Synthetic 5W-20. NO...


i say change your oil every 3000 to 3500 miles no matter what any little monitoring system says!!!!!!
oil is the lifeblood of the car and is the key to a great, long lasting vehicle.
