Try changing oil brands. If you want some good info on oil burnoff rates etc google noac volatility tests.I could explain it here but it would take an hour.
Good luck!

I have VW bora that the transmission had been rebuild with a new oil pump ,but now the oil pressure is only reading 75 PSI at 2000 RPM what can be the cause


You do not need huge oil pressure to have the oiling system do its job. Pressure can be low, like 20 psi and still lube and protect..... Too high pressure blows seals and the like.... The lubrication system and its pressure depend on all of the clearances to be tight enough (meaning oil pressure lubed areas like cam, crank mains, lifters, rods, etc. So, the top limit of the pressuer is controlled by a relief valve, usually on the pump or the oil filter. this limits the upper amount of pressure that you can develop.

Are you consuming, or burning oil? How many miles before you add a quart of oil? Factories claim a quart in 600 miles okay. But for me, I need 1500 to 2500 miles at one quart is normal....

But Your issue...Are there any other symptoms of anything?

It is normal to use over a quart of oil before oil change


My 1993 voyager is like that. It may burn some , it definitely leaks some , and it could be just sending some through the PCV valve. Oil leaks and burning oil causes pollution . If you can fix it with a new seal or a valve cover gasket it is easier than constantly checking your oil. Temperature, trailering, speed, outdoor temperature, and engine RPM all can be factors if you are losing oil. If your engine is a quart down, the engine oil consumption rate doubles or triples. In other words the lower the oil level the faster it disappears. High mile cars will drive for years as long as you add oil when it is needed (keep the oil level between the marks). Fix any obvious leaks. Then determine your oil change interval (3000 miles, 4000 miles, 5000 miles). I change between 4000 and 5000 miles. If i am a quart low at 3500 I add a quart. If I am a quart low at 4500 miles I just change the oil in the car. A good practice is to carry a quart of oil in your vehicle just in case you need it. It is far cheaper to add a quart when needed than to go to the dealer once to maybe fix a problem that they may not be able to find or fix. Older engines (even some newer ones) just use oil , especially in hotter climates. Fix the obvious and carry a quart.

Oil light than the engine light stays on did change the oil but 3 time was not to oil specification due to money not sure if that has something to do with it


yes it does. you have to keep the oil level up to par with specs. a goo all year all weather oil is a 10w30. you can use any brand,but the critical thing is to keep the level up. low oil will cause those lights to come on....and make sure you replace the oil filter.

2006 Town & Country burning oil excessively. 40,000 miles; burning 1 quart every 1000 miles; no signs of the oil anywhere


At 40K miles it shouldn't burn that much oil, unless the motor has been abused or overheated. With no signs of oil leaks, the engine must be burning it via the exhaust,

Change the oil (use a good quality oil) and then observe oil consumption.

If it still uses excessive oil check further as below:-
1) if it blows blue smoke on steady accelleration (pistons or ring wear),
or
2) only blows blue smoke on initial accelleration after a period of steady coasting or de-celleration (faulty valve stem oil seals).

Oil Change two weeks ago and oil level is low already???


I assume you have no leaks as you say. Your van does hold 5 quarts of 10w30 oil with filter change. The level was 1/4" above the add mark, which is less than 1 quart low. You drove the van 1,300 miles so it is very possible that it could burn that much oil in that many miles without you seeing much smoke. Top it off and have someone else drive it. Have them get up to around 60 mph, then let off the accelerator and let it coast down to 30 mph, then accelerate fully while you follow in another vehicle. If your van is burning oil you will see a big puff of blue smoke when they accelerate after coasting. If you do not I would suspect you were cheated out of about 1/2 quart of oil. You would not be the first person this has happened to. Top it off and check as I described and then check the level after driving another 1,300 miles. If it is still full find another place to change your oil as the place you went are crooks.

2005 Chrysler 300 consumes a quart or two of oil every 3,000 mile


It is not normal for a car with 29,000 miles on it to consume this amount of oil in 10,000 miles. We usually change our oil between 3 and 5 thousand miles and thus may not notice small amounts consumed but certainly not 1-2 quarts. It is more likely that you are leaking oil, but if it is burning it, that is a real problem. If the car was pre-owned do a CARFAX. If it was wrecked, find out was was done. If the odometer is correct, this car needs to be inspected by a professional. I can tell you to look for unburned oil in the tailpipe, smoking exhuast, leaks from the oil pan and drain. Change the oil and filter and closely monitor the level.

Advice on purchasing a 2005 Chrysler 300 Limited with 98000 miles


Hello scottym88...The chrysler 300 engine is the weak point on this vehicle, the 2.7 litre was a major headache for owners, dealers and Chrysler...the problem was due to engine sludge, poor oil circulation, poor crankcase ventilation, faulty timing chain tensioners...etc...From 1998-2004 the Chrysler 2.7L was prone to Oil Sludge often caused by internal coolant leakage that has to do with the design of the Water Pump that allows coolant to enter the Engine over time and causes oil sludge...result..ENGINE FAILURE. For 2005, changes included improvements to the PCV system and improved oil circulation, to even later increasing oil capacity by an extra quart in an attempt to make the engine more reliable... Unfortunately, even with all of these modifications premature engine failure is common. I've seen this first hand...and the really sad part is CHRYSLER knows...yet refuses to cover prematurely failed engines even when under its own 3 Year / 36,000 mile warranty while blaming consumers for these problems.
If you want to research this further, check out the consumer complaints on this vehicle and/or the 2.7 litre engine. I have been a MOPAR enthusiast all my life, and in my opinion this was the worst engine that chrysler ever released to the public.
Good luck...i hope this helps answer your question..please rate me a fixya.

Low Oil Pressure?


Thats fine. It only takes 4 psi of pressure to keep your engine oiled.

Engine noise


The ticking may have been related to the low dirty oil condition, did you get proof of regular service? the engine in your truck does have some history of oil consumption problems, but I think by 05 they where fixed by Ford, the ticking is either the cam chain or the cam followers, never heard anything called a camshaft phaser, and I have worked for a Ford dealer 20 years. Abnormal oi use is anything over 1 quart US for every 1000 miles of driving, a little more if you drive in hot weather conditions. Put a can of Berrymans Chemtool in the oil, this may help to clean the inside of the engine, also make sure to run either 10-30W or lighter in the engine, heavier oils will cause bearing damage.
