In a "perfect world" you should loose none. It is acceptable to loose (burn)
about 1/2 to 3/4 quart in 2,000-2500 miles.

Oil smell inside jeep liberty


key factor here, is source

my guess, is the car was never serviced?

and the PCV valve clogged long ago and now you have illegal

engine bypass gases venting at hoses cracked or lots of places

and the PCV gases do stink, that will wift in the the cab.

that is my wild guess. but do get a mech to find it.

we can smell anything here, nor try to find source.



and do replace the PCV if clogged. or at 60,000 miles.



high oil usage , do tell, quarts per 3000 miles.

and high speed will suck more oil as will running thin oil.

Using 1 quart a mth. no visible leakage. i can tell when it starts getting low by how it runs. live in mx. 110 /87% humidity. is this normal usage? i never had to put in extra oil and get it changed every...


One quart per month is a bit more than I'd expect but you didn't mention how many miles you drive during that month.If you live where the ambient temps are very warm, it may help to use a good synthetic. Synthetic oils do not burn off or break down chemically as fast as conventional oils do. I'd use a 20w40 grade.
Depending on the miles you've driven you shouldn't have excessive ring wear but the valve stem seals may have dried out and cracked. If the usage remains constant and there is no smoking etc, you could either leave it alone or have new seals installed.
Average driving is approximately 1,000 miles per month so when figuring consumption, use that as a baseline. One quart per 1,000 miles in very hot conditions is a bit high....I'd expect to see 1/2 qt or slightly less. One odd thing though is that generally, especially in an engine that holds six quarts to begin with, at five quarts, the engine should not feel any different!!!
Also.....you use miles to determine oil change intervals. Oil is best changed at between 3K and 4K miles. Only way you use the 3month method is if you don't use it much. (you can run most good synthetics longer than that)

Where do you fill the auto tranns fluid??


It goes in the place where the dip stick for your transmission dip stick is. Check the level per the instructions from VW. WARNING: DO NOT OVER FILL

Warm the car by driving around the block. Find the tranny dip stick, pull it, wipe it and check it again. If the oil level in in the cross hatch area, the level is fine.

Oil level drops after 2000 kms


sounds about right,in fact thats good,toyota state that oil burn/usage should be about 1/2 litre to every 1000km and will do nothing until it gets to 1 litre every 500km under warranty......remember that as a cars mileage gets higher 5/30 oil is too thin,go to 10/40, then when 1 litre to 1000km is reached go to 20/50.(toyota cars are filled with 10/40 semi synthetic when new.).

For a 2008 vw Passat, is it normal to burn 2 qrts of oil between changes? 4 cyl 2 0 turbo


VW RECKON that oil usage around 1/2 litre per 500km is acceptable !!!!!!!! yeah right...i suppose it does lubricate the turbo blades....and the exhaust pipe internally....you could use 20/50 instead of 5/40 that would cut it down,but not do much good to the engines long life..... VW reckon about 150,000m before rebuild.

How much do I expect to pay for new brakes


It will vary on the brakes, depending what needs to be replaced, rotors, calipers, pads. I would say around $200-$300 per axle. I've seen tranmission services going for $79-$99.

MB300 CE 1991 with 350k. burns 1l/1000km


Your oil usage is too high. Unfortunately, with that kind of miles. the cause is likely an overall wear condition involving cylinder walls, rings , bearings, valve guides/seals etc (all likely more $ than you paid for the vehicle) If it runs well, I'd try to eliminate any external oil leaks wherever possible and practical. Also make sure any pan venting (breathers) are clear so as to avoid positive pressures inside the engine that will tend to push oil out.Then use a "high mileage" oil with a bit of marvel oil added By doing that, you can lower the usage somewhat. When faced with higher than normal oil consumption, people generally begin using "cheap" oil. By doing that, the cheaper oil generally creates more sludge inside and does not protect as well, causing consumption to rise further. You don't want to do that..
