IF ENGINE IS FRESH,NOT BEEN BEAT ON AND YOU KNOW THE HISTORY TRY THE PCV VALVE AND HOSE. PCV MAY BE RECIRCULATING THROUGH INDUCTION AND BURNING YOUR OIL. THIS IS ASSUMING PISTON RINGS ARE GOOD AND YOU ARE USING THE RIGHT OIL. SEE IF AIR FILTER IS DIRTY,IF SO REPLACE IT AND NOT WITH A K&N IT DAMAGES MASS AIR SENSORS AND FUEL MILEAGE WILL GO BYE BYE AND POSSIBLY DRIVEABILITY ISSUES. MARK DIP STICK AND TRY THESE FIRST. QUICK CHECK PULL OFF INDUCTION TUBE,OPEN THROTTLE BODY AND JUST LOOK IN FOR OIL IN THE INTAKE MANIFOLD.

Why is my 2007 300c burning oil


You do not say how much oil the car is burning. One quart every 1000 miles is ok. Cars with 75000 miles or higher are likely to burn more oil than cars with less mileage. Try using high mileage motor oil. If excessive smoke is coming out of your exhaust pipe, you are either leaking oil through the piston oil rings or valve seals. Then you will need an expensive repair.

Yes it is safe to drive it now. But i would recheck your oil level before you drive it. As long as the oil level is where it is supposed to be, then you will be fine.

My 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan is using a lot of oil...maybe a quart every 1000 miles. I have no oil slick in the driveway and don't notice any white smoke from the exhaust. Any ideas where it could be...


You are most likely burning it. There is much less smoke produced these days, with the cat. converter.

A wear area on yoru vehicle is valve stem seals, when they go, oil is actually pumped out...

Also, consider a high mileage blend oil, like casteroil. I am not into mechaninc in a can, but this stuff lowers consumption and is semi synthetic...

You can reaseal the valve stems, but I wonder about guide looseness, and fairly rapid seal failure again...Still, you can get it going and sell the vehicle....

Oil Change two weeks ago and oil level is low already???


I assume you have no leaks as you say. Your van does hold 5 quarts of 10w30 oil with filter change. The level was 1/4" above the add mark, which is less than 1 quart low. You drove the van 1,300 miles so it is very possible that it could burn that much oil in that many miles without you seeing much smoke. Top it off and have someone else drive it. Have them get up to around 60 mph, then let off the accelerator and let it coast down to 30 mph, then accelerate fully while you follow in another vehicle. If your van is burning oil you will see a big puff of blue smoke when they accelerate after coasting. If you do not I would suspect you were cheated out of about 1/2 quart of oil. You would not be the first person this has happened to. Top it off and check as I described and then check the level after driving another 1,300 miles. If it is still full find another place to change your oil as the place you went are crooks.

Low on engine oil


Well, if there are no leaks, then it has to be piston rings or valve seals. If it's only burning a quart every 1500 miles, you would barely see any smoke, and by the standards of 20 or 30 years ago, that was normal.

Bought an 07 avalanche used at 30k miles. Burns about 2 quarts of oil every other week. No oil stains in driveway. White smoke occassionly when starting up. Dealership doesnt have a clue.


Replace the driver side valve cover. It leaks internally into the pcv system and gets burned. you don't see much smoke because the catalytic convertors burn it up.
