It's not a problem as long as you keep up on it. But you have to start adding more with age of the car. It only gets worse. The oil pan seals and valve cover seals seem to be the biggest problems with oil leaks.

Some Hyundai engines of that age are known for developing worn valve guide seals, allowing oil burning to occur. If a compression test shows good readings then the valve guide seals are the likely cause. They can be replaced with removing the cylinder head.

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.

I have 2.4 liter Audi A6 car gasoline. The consumption now is 25 liters per 100 Km which is too much, it must be 15.4 liters per 100 km How can I solve this problem?


Have you changed the plugs, changed the air filter, etc. Many times a clogged air filter will kill the mileage. Have you had a compression test to see if it is just wore out? All sorts of things need to be checked to answer this.

2004 , no miles on engine, stated, (odometer) 50k, 500k, what?
all engines burn oil by design. ALL !
only question is, how much, ?
miles /per quart
or KM per LITER.

if you ask any sharp mech, to fix oil consumption, HE WILL
Ching-ching..... after all you asked him, !!!!!
don't , no really dont.

post the consumption rates and ask.?
ive got like 1.5million miles in cars, and motorcycles.
and 300k or more in ships. (our ship burns oil only) LOL

the number 1 reason of excessive oil is driving too fast.
if you drive most cars 80mphy all the time, it will burn more oil
most cars new run about 1 quart of oil per 3000 miles.

I had one engine, a mazda, i drove it to the ground, as an experiment.
a 626, it was using a quart every 1000 miles
it took oil EVERY fill up. oils cheap so I fed it. why not?
the PO overheated the engine once and that is why.;
I rebuild engines so , know the reasons.... (retired now)

does tail pipe end smoke? , (end) first start, not steam,but oil smoke)?
only cold, ignore it.
does it hot?, its got issues. (rings)
if it loves toSMOKE , going down a hill fast?, and with foot off throttle
(high vacuum) and you look in rear view mirror and it's smoking
yes, that is valve seals bad, $10 in parts.
ask someone to follow you, and look for smoke, (easy,huh?)

if it smokes all the time?, and PCV valve is new (not clogged)
it needs rings. or like me, just drive it like you stole it, why not?

My Alto VXR 2004 has a problem that its engine oil is getting lesser fast in quantity. I am using Zic A as engine oil.local car mechanic says engine weak he says gas kit and engine head problem


is is odometer reading?
all cars burn oil if driven real fast, at 80mph, lots.
what i need is ,
1: speeds driven. avg.
2: and what weight, oil , is it hot there, sure, then run 10w-40 oil.
3: how many liters of oil per miles.
some cars go for years, burning 1quart of oil per 3000 mile.s
1L/5000 km to 1L /1000 km. (new car to old)
even more. on older engines.
if the engine runs good, drive it and change oil more often.
check oil at every petrol fill up, and learn what your engine needs
all engine burn oil by design. its a fact.

do an engine compression test.
2 times wide open throttle.
on a warm engine
if lower that spec, 150psi?
then add 1 teaspoon, of oil to spark hole , see if compression rises
if it does, its rings are old.
post the numbers, if all are 150 or more , drive it like you stole it.
half joking there, but drive it. and change oil often and check oil levels
every fill up or every other (depends on reality)

GASKET.
post the compression test readings. only NUMBERS count.
we need numbers and engine size.

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

High fuel consumption


change o2 sensors every 60,000 miles and use iridium plugs they will outlast engine.
check engine light will not come on until sensors are completely shot,this also goes for your mass air flow,had same issues with 99 beetle happened at 80,000 miles,changed all three items ended up with 35mpg after getting 24mpg before fix.parts are cheap on ebay.
