The Isuzu 3.5's all burn about 1 quart between oil changes. It was an engineering flaw with that model engine. Some people have said that running full synthetic oil will correct the problem over time. Either way, it is extremely important that you check your oil regularly.

As for you second question: Torque on demand has at its heart wheel speed sensors which typically are the issue. Having a wheel speed sensor replaced will set you back about $300.

I hope I was helpful.

I switched to the 15w40 diesel oil and my oil consumption dropped...


Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.

Whatr makes oil sludge form under Izuzu Trooper 1988 Model


great question, (old)
oil and water do that.
or not changing oil until 25,000 miles like some dweeb, synthetic oil users suck in to the lie.
or driving only 1 mile per day (short trips)
the engine needs to reach full operating temp to burn off all that water.
gasoline burns into CO2 and water. so water happens
here.

or its a FORD (LOL)

My 2000 Isuzu Trooper is useing about 1 quart every 300 miles and no leaking or noticable smoke. Any answers?


A "leak down" test will test the cylinder effectiveness, as will a compression test. These will tell you how good the engine is.

My 2000 isuzu trooper seems to use oil a little, I've checked the antifreeze-nothing,spark plugs look fine, and no smoke out the back....I can't figure out were the oil goes... Any ideas I would appreciate...


How much is a little oil? 1 quart(US) in 5000 miles is reasonable oil consumption. If you don't have any major leaks, the oil is going out the exhaust pipe. As the engine wears the piston rings dont seal as well as they used too and the oil gets burned in the combustion process. You didnt mention how many miles you have on the vehicle, An engine with 150,000-175,000 is going to burn a little oil..

White smoke from right side of motor


Check your oil, does it look like chocolate milk, if so you have blown a head gasket. Or you could just have a bad valve cover gasket, this allows oil to drain down onto the exhaust where it burns and as a result, white smoke. If you get enough of it, when you pull your plugs it will coat them in oil.

Loud clicking from engine


Classic Trooper problem. You can get a lot of quiet(er) troublefree miles out of your Trooper with religious, regular oil changes. Isuzu is now advising the use of Mobil 1 0w30 synthetic motor oil, changed at 5000 mi intervals to quiet the lifter tapping that you're experiencing. If you're a DIYer, you can pick up 5qt jugs of this oil at Walmart for $23-$26. -Or, you can buy the basic oil change and provide your own Mobil 1 0w30 to the tech to keep the costs down.

It'll take 150-300 miles for the noise to settle down after the fresh oil change. Keep a close eye on your oil dipstick. As soon as you're coming close to a quart low, top it back up. The 3.2l motor will start tapping again when the oil level drops or is near the time to change. Forget the advice about the belt tensioner needing to be replaced. That is rarely the source of the noise. I have two Troopers, Christophe. They're the ones that aren't tapping like crazy at the traffic light. Enjoy your Troop. -Geoff

2001 shelby series 1 with 10,000 burns oil


Yep it's more than likely worn valve stem seals. What happens when your motor cools down the seals contract and oil passes through the gap and then when you start it again the oil burns. It will more than likely last years depending on how much oil your burning if you need to put more than 500ml in a week you probably should get a mechanic to check it out.
