Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima
Uses 1 quart every 200/300 miles. engines has 100,000 miles. problem has gotten worse. it was 700/800 miles per quart. no smoke or leaking. 140,000 km on mine same issue - no blue smoke - now starting to hear engine knocking - help I love this car!!
If you love the car as you say than be prepaired to shell out the bucks for a rebuild or replacement engine, because thats the only fix for your situation. You may not see any blue smoke but believe me its burning it, or you got a leak witch you say you don't. Its going someware and most likely its out the exhaust.

This is a MAJOR problem for this car & year. If you look around on other Nissan fix it sites,its just one of its flaws that Nissan refuses to acknowledge. I actually(along with plenty of other Max owners) sad but got used to carrying 2-3 Extra Qts with me,get used to it,its unfortunately NORMAL for this retarded car. Sorry..
