Oil problem I'm bringing mine in for an oil problem too. Burning way too much oil the last few months. It's a 2007 Eos also. I'm not buying their answers on this one either...They have begun testing mine.

I haven't heard about this too much on Eos, but your problem is a classic VW issue--a bunch of theirs will burn oil, but not belch blue smoke or leave an oil stain under the car--according to the Car Talk guys it's cause usually can't be discovered and you just have to remember to check oil monthly.

Be sure you are using the correct motor oil. you must follow the spec in the owners manual, no substitutes, period. if the oil used does not have this spec printed on the bottle thens its not good enough. VW502.00

My 2006 chevy hhr is in between oil changes and two courts low and time to change oil again.

First thing,don't let the manufacture tell you that you can 5000 to 6000 mile without an oil change.Next thing they want you to use oil that is much too thin.They don't want the engine to last too long because they can't sell you a new car that often.City driving you need to change your oil at least every 3000 mile and highway every 4000 mile.The biggest problem is having you oil changed at a quick change that uses BULK oil.If they don't offer oil from a jug,next time bring you own oil if you have to.Use 10w30 in the winter months and 10w40 in the Summer.It don't hurt to put in a can of STP after each change.

Check oil with dipstick. Add oil if needed and bring vehicle back to where you got oil changed. Or bring vehicle to nearest service shop, but make sure to check oil level first. This sounds like a mistake was made during last oil change.

2007 Yukon xl denali burning oil

If you smell burning oil, you may have a leak in the engine compartment reaching the exhaust manifold and burning on contact. The most common cause for that is leaking valve cover gaskets. If you are losing oil with NO signs of external leaks, the engine may be burning it internally. Valve stem oil seals, worn piston rings, blown/leaking head gasket are a few causes of that.

2006 subaru forester burning oil

burning oil usually is bad rings or vALVE SEALS either takes considerable man hours to fix so it will be costly . they do sell an additive for that but I have no idea if it works . I suggest you check the oil weekly or even daily , not monthly might save you blowing the motor completely

Oil smell smells like it is burning oil last oil change was 3 months ago

Common causes of smelling "burning" oil are:
  1. a leak in the valve cover gasket. When oil leaks from the valve cover gasket, it will often burn off on the manifold.
  2. a blown oil seal causing oil to burn off on the exhaust system
  3. check your exhaust for "blue smoke" a sign that the engine is actually burning oil. Just guessing here but a 16 year old Volvo is bound to have quite a few miles on it.
I hope you found this post helpful in diagnosing your problem. Thank you for using Fixya! Greg

Where is the oil filter and drain plug to change the oil on a vw eos 2007?

I hope that by now you've already solved this, but the folks at Jiffy Lube tell me that the reason they have to charge me extra to do an oil change on an Eos is that there's a metal plate on the bottom of the car with a whole bunch of bolts they have to take off in order to access the drain plug.

I have put 6 liters of oil inthe truck in the last 2 months. Its not leaking out and not visibly buring the oil either. The truck runs good and doesn't seem to be affected by this. i just cant figure out...

the magic fairy appears to be at work ,if its not leaking then its burning it ,which means valves guides or rings are worn ,and with your enviromental disaster monster engine you would not notice the loss in power in such a small vehicle ,we pull 40tons of loaded truck here with a smaller engine in europe

Which oil should i buy for VW eos

oli depends on several issues.
the two types are mineral or synthetic oils but this does not
matter although a lot of people prefer synthetic oils

if you live somwhere hot then a thicker oil is better as it will
keep is viscosity in hot weather
and in cold countries or in winter then a thinner oil is needed
so it moves round the engine when it is cold.

in Germany VW recommend Oils from Castrol.
it is best to ask a dealership for which oil rating is best for where you are.
