Are you using the correct weight oil as outlined in your owner's manual. You car is unusual in that the specifications require you to use 10w40 oil when driving above −13 degrees fahrenheit. It also states that you are to use 5w20 when operating the vehicle in temperatures below 14 degrees fahrenheit. Then goes on to say not to be used for sustained high speed operation. So all in all the specifications for your vehicle are odd in that most vehicles today use 5w20 weight oil. I personally would use 10w40 or 10w30 weight in this engine as that would be appropriate for the vast majority of how and where you drive. If you are using a lighter weight oil that may be why it is using oil at this rate

    I have heard this before from so-called experts that 1 quart every 1,000 miles is not abnormal. I totally disagree with that assessment. I have never owned a car that used 1 quart every 1,000 miles unless it was on it's last leg and worn out, or had a leak. Even the cars I owned built in the 50s did not use that much oil. I have owned some that would use 1 quart every 3,000 miles which I would consider normal. A modern engine made in 2005 using 1 quart of oil every 1,000 miles that is driven normally and not abused is not a normal situation, no matter what anyone tells you. I have a 1999 Toyota with 115,000 miles and it uses 1/2 quart every 5,000 miles when I change it. My 2004 Honda Accord will use around 1 pint in 5,000 miles. Something is causing this and if it were my car I would be very upset with a modern engine using this much oil. It may be the engine was neglected and has wear or it may be incorrect weight oil. But something is causing this abnormal oil consumption unless this is a very, very, high mileage engine.

My 2008 chevy avalanche is burning 1 quart of oil every 1000 miles


How many miles on your vehicle ? Do you see any leak spots on the ground from the truck ? Blue exhaust , oil burning , valve guide seals , piston rings , PCV clogged .

Oil Consumption Diagnosis
Checks
Causes
Excessive oil consumption, not due to leaks, is the use of 1 L (1 qt) or more of engine oil within 3 200 kilometers (2,000 miles).
Preliminary
The causes of excessive oil consumption may include the following conditions:
• External oil leaks
Refer to Oil Leak Diagnosis .
• Incorrect oil level or improper reading of the oil level indicator
With the vehicle on a level surface, run the engine for a few minutes, allow adequate drain down time, 2-3 minutes, and measure for the correct engine oil level.
• Improper oil viscosity
Refer to the vehicle owners manual and use the recommended SAE grade and viscosity for the prevailing temperatures.
• Continuous high speed driving and/or severe usage
• Crankcase ventilation system restrictions or malfunctioning components
Refer to Crankcase Ventilation System Inspection/Diagnosis .
• Worn valve guides and/or valve stems
• Worn or improperly installed valve stem oil seals
Refer to Spark Plug Inspection .
• Piston rings broken, worn, or not seated properly
Allow adequate time for the rings to seat.
Replace worn piston rings, as necessary.
Refer to Cylinder Leakage Test .
• Piston and rings improperly installed or not fitted to the cylinder bore
Refer to Lower Engine Noise, Regardless of Engine Speed

Oil light came on 1000 miles short of estimated next oil change, had the oil change done and the light comes on and off 2005 tuscon


Could possibly be a loose connection on the oil sending sensor or the sensor itself may be on its way out. Most sensors are located on the side of the engine block usually on on or near where the oil filter attaches.

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.

'01 Durango R/T slight oil consumption. 1/4 - 1/2 Qt a month. about every 500-1000miles. Is this normal is signs that gaskets need replaced. If so what gaskets?


Anything over 1 quart in 1000 miles might be considered excessive. It probably is not gaskets unless there is a leak. If there is a leak there might be a puddle of oil on the ground where you park it. If there is a puddle or drips of oil look at valve cover gaskets, oil pan gaskets, crankshaft seals , etc.

What is normal oil consumption?


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

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.

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.
