Your motor is burning it off,it's just at such a slow rate that between the emmissions on the motor and the slow leak your not able to see any smoke,a shop can do a leakdown test and pinpoint where the leakage is,it may be as simple as replacing the head gasket.

At 167,000 miles there will be wear on the piston bores and rings this means you will be burning off oil even during normal running

Standing test is to make sure that the car is in park and get someone to really rev the engine for a few seconds let it die down and do it again repeat this 6 or so times and I bet you will see a thin blue smoke coming from the muffler

1 a simple compression test will tell you if the rings and valves are bad. thats where you start.. 2 it could be an oil leak under the vehicle , you will see a black spot. do this first it only takes a look whee you park it on dry clean pavement or place a clean piece of cardboard under it.

Why is my 2007 Nissan sentra 2.0 using 1 qt of oil every 600 miles?


More than likely u have a leaking valve cover gasket unless your seeing smoke than it might have a burnt valve guide or guides if its smoking real bad than it could have bad rings and you don't want that cause then u half to tear the motor down basically rebuilding the motor

Smoke comin from top rocker cover smell like burnin oil


Could the smoke be coming from the exhaust manifold on the passenger side of the engine? When the valve cover starts to leak, it is common for the oil to leak down and burn on the outside of the exhaust manifold.
Replacing a valve cover gasket is not difficult or expensive, and it is common for BMW valve cover gaskets to get brittle and shrink and start leaking every 10 years or so. My wife's 330 needed a new valve cover gasket at 6 years.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The cylinder head is located on the center of the engine. Yes it can be a worn out head gasket or piston rings. If the piston rings are worn out the oil is burnt that's why it emits white smoke. You will need to replace the head gasket and piston rings.

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.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 4.7 V-8. It burns oil aprox 1 Qt a week. The driver told me she sees white smoke from the exhaust when the A/C is on. I did not think the problem was related to...


I think, the bearing of the A/C unit jam and putting extra load on the engine or the belt that connects to the engine has dried out. Logically, A/C has no direct connection with the engine exhaust.

I have a 96 honda civic lx, with 133,300. i just had the exhaust valves replaced,and the guy said the rings were good. it dont smoke, but it is going thru 1 qt of oil every 2 days


if it doesn't smoke then it is throwing the oil out somewhere, probably down at the back of engine at valve cover gasket....he might have screwed up the gasket or tried to re-use th old cork one. but.....check the oil dipstick tube to make sure it is seated properly and not giving you a proper reading....hope this helps

Does it smoke? if so, it is leaking at the head gasket into the combustion chambers.

Valve covers are not too tricky. Buy a set of valve cover gaskets and replace them.
Autozone has a tech section on their website that may be helpful for information.
