I smell exaust and my accord is also buring oil

if engine is running bad, there is huge lethal Carbon Monoxide
present in exhaust, so keep this beast outside, and not park
in any snow banks.
and keep the non recirc, fan on , while in car. as a precaution.

now find a muffler shop and tell him/her, fix my exhaust holes.

adding oil . ./ is normal for all cars. faster you drive the more oil.
how much oil,? 1qt/3000 miles is ok, 1qt in 1000 is a ver tired/old engine.

on old cars, check oil every fill up. until you learn your rate of consumption..

I switched to the 15w40 diesel oil and my oil consumption dropped...

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.

Burning Oil

we check oil every other fuel fill up. on old cars, every fill up
did you run car 10,000 miles to a oil change? unstated.
1qt/3000 miles is perfectly OK.
so 10000 mles is 3.3 quarts burned and off the top of the dip stick
if you drive fast, it burns more, got a heavy foot, or load in back>?
if you had done it right, you'd have already learned YOUR engines
consumption rates, and learned to check when IT , needs checking
we do this on all engines. all machines.
all engines burn oil, the exception , a church car, new, and never driven, far, or fast or for 10000 miles to an oil change.

your mech, was right, he was thinking , you dont check oil?

2006, bmw X5, high Oil loss ( about 1qt per 1000 miles), PCV tested, BMW indicates that it is a 5 on a scale of 6 which will then be replaced (3 is normal). What else could be causing the high oil...

oil sep not causing this issue,this would be caused by the crankcase valve both on 6 and 8 cyl,if you have a 6 the part is locaed below the intake behind the throttle,you must also remove the dip stick and clean out the drain on the stick,if you have a 8 cyl than you must rere the intake and repl the rear cover and oil drain, also this issue is more commonly found when temps are very cold.either way this should be replace to prevent furhter damages to the enigine.this should solve the oil consumption issue as long as there are no other leaks present

Having to top up oil at least twice in between services is this normal? BMW x3 two years old or the oil light comes on

Get to the dealership, isn't it under warranty? The standard for oil consumption before it is considered a problem is 1Qt. per 1,000 mi. (or it used to be) but I wouldn't expect a car that new to use much if any but certainly no more than 1qt. per 5,000 miles, unless you already have 100,000+ miles on it. I threw those figures out because you didn't say how far you are going between changes or how much it takes to top it up. BTW, I hope you mean the oil low (amber add oil) light not the red out of oil/stop the car light. If it's red you'd better look for a huge leak and start with the filter and drain plug if you are going to quik change places.

What is normal oil consumption?

you may want to upgrade your oil to a thicker oil that helps alot more than people think its normal anywhere from 1qt to 1/2 a qt every 3000 miles that sounds pretty good and a healthy engine upgrade on brands and viscosity that should take care of that but it will burn more oil if the engine is being broken into for the first time if its brand new

1994 Lexus ES300 large cloud of smoke when the car is started. Also, drove for several miles on the freeway then parked. When the car started, no smoke until I hit the first stoplight, while idling it was...

Valve stem seals can cause this problem, but normally only when first started. Oil in the rocker cover seaps through the oil seals into the cylinders and is burnt up on start up.
Try a "STOP A LEAK" additive and it may reduce the oil consumption and smoke.
I found some on e-bay and it worked on my tired old escort. It even stopped the rattling tappets.

My 05 silverado 1500 with 70000 miles seems to be burning oil is this normal

How much oil? 1qt every 1000 miles is in acceptable limits for most manufacturers. That is too much in my book, so you may be starting to have a motor issue.

Oil consumptiom

Figuring off of national standards thata gasoline engine is allowed to burn 1qt. of oil every 2,000 miles tthey would be correct.But That is not to say for that particular engine providing that oil has been changed every 3000 miles,There could be other problems contributing to your car,for instance cklogged pcv valve,leaking injectors or fuel preasure regulator both can cause fuel contamination to engine oil (Dillution) Thins oil too much,or overheat condition,or failed cat convertor.With this in mind talk with another Nissan dealer if only by Phone.
