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

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?

Oil backing up through the hole where the old dipstick goes. some kind of pressure problem


all engines burn oil, ALL!
and if you dive faster, it burns more. (rate)
you did not state the rate, here in USA we do
quarts per mile (liters are same )
1 qt/ 3000 miles is norm.
but if you dont service a vehicle , for sure every 60miles.
100km. the PCV valve will clog and the crankcase will go over
pressure, and the car will leak and burn more oil.
the dip stick hole must **** not blow.
if it dont **** , running, the PCV is DEAD !

How much oil usage is normal?


1 quart every 2000 miles. Not all cars are created equal. The same model may burn alot less or even more.

My 2004 audi A4 consumes oil at a rate of 1 1/2 quarts every 3 months. There are no apparent leaks and it is not burning it. It idles and runs smooth. Any suggestions?


How many miles/km's you drive in those 3 month's ? oil consumption is normal ! Check when you first start the engine in the morning wetter or not you see a puff of blue smoke, if you see smoke , your valve seals are leaking.
1 liter oil each 2000km is normal.

I have a 2009 Honda Pilot. It has 14775K miles on it. We have been using the oil indicator light to dictate when to change the oil. We have only replaced it once. We used Mobile Synthetic 5W-20. NO...


i say change your oil every 3000 to 3500 miles no matter what any little monitoring system says!!!!!!
oil is the lifeblood of the car and is the key to a great, long lasting vehicle.

Oil consumptiom


Figuring off of national standards thata gasoline engine is allowed to burn 1qt. of oil every 2,000 miles tthey would be correct.But That is not to say for that particular engine providing that oil has been changed every 3000 miles,There could be other problems contributing to your car,for instance cklogged pcv valve,leaking injectors or fuel preasure regulator both can cause fuel contamination to engine oil (Dillution) Thins oil too much,or overheat condition,or failed cat convertor.With this in mind talk with another Nissan dealer if only by Phone.

Using to much oil a 2002 accent with 76k. uses about a quart every 1k miles. dop i need to adjust the valves?


That's within acceptable limits according to Hyundai Motor America's standard: For a proper diagnosis, the amount of oil consumed over a known mileage should be checked three times and then averaged.The accumulated mileage divided by the total amount of oil added will give the consumption rate in miles per quart. If the oil consumption rate is greater than 1 quart per each 1000 miles, further diagnosis may be required.
