Question about 2003 Nissan Pathfinder
My 03 pathfinder recently is burning oil there is no oil leak externaly what could it be
It could be several things. first, does it smoke on startup, but stop after it runs for a few minutes. This could indicate worn valve seals. Smoking constantly could indicate worn piston rings. Now if no smoke is noticed at all, then it could be more serious. What you want to do is check your radiator coolant and make sure there isnt any oil residue in there at all. The oil could be forced througha crack in the block into a cooling passage and be mixing with the coolant. If this is the case, the excess volume caused by this would cause it to be expelled throught the overflow hose from your radiator cap while you are driving. Causing you to never suspect or see it.
