Use 10W-30W, any major brand like Valvoline, Pennsoil, Castrol etc. will do the job.

I dont know why those other answers are assuming you have a diesel engine. Try a compression test to see if you have a broken or stuck ring on a piston. Also look at the carb to see if the choke if staying wide open.

Engine burning oil

you should be checking the Oil Level more often than 5K miles but my 2009 Toyota Corolla burns oil (Not a LEAK), just consumes oil (1 Quart every 2K miles). It has done this since it was Brand New and Toyota said (ADD MORE OIL).... So that is what we have done. Watch the level and make sure you add more.

I Have A 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 With The 5.7 Hemi V8 Engine. I Have Changed Oil Every 3 Months Even If It Did Not Have 3000 Miles On The Oil Change. Now I Am Being Told That I Should Only Go By Mileage. ...

Oil changes based on mileage is the best in my opinion. I haven't heard of any sludge issues on this model. You can't believe everything just because it's written on the internet. Just follow what the owners manual calls for and you'll be okay.

Does anyone know Honda's requirement for timing belt replacement on 2005 honda civic lx. I've seen varying comments on line, would like to know Honda's requirement.1.7L Thanks for any help or suggestions....

From the Owner's Manual: replace the timing belt @ "110k miles or 7 years whichever comes first". We have 73k on our Ex and have had no problems with the automatic ... in fact it is the smoothest shifting auto that I've ever driven. I did a fluid change (incomplete ... u can't drain the entire transaxle) at 60k which is the recommended interval for "severe" service.

73k miles needs new engine? 2002 Sentra SER

Did u add oil and attempt to start car? What's it doing? How often did u have to add a quart of oil (in miles)?
It does sound like it was consuming too much oil, but once u run it dry, there is no warantee that will cover it, so manufacturer can't (won't) help u on this. I agree, an engine rebuild would be VERY expensive due to no oil damage, the best thing to do (if the car is in good shape otherwise, trans. good, body good) would be to find a used motor from a scrap yard (must be careful to check mileage and that the 'donor' car wasn't in a bad front end collision which may cause engine problems) or a re-manufactured engine. Any further questions, let me know, sorry for the bad news.
