Your car is probably burning oil through the piston rings due to wear. The valve cover gasket will show signs of leaking from the space between the valve cover and the head. Remove one of your spark plugs and see if it is black and oily. You can try using a little thicker oil than what you have now or just add a little in as it burns off. Buy a quart of name brand 20w/50 and use that to top off the oil as it burns off. You should notice a difference.

Smoke comin from top rocker cover smell like burnin oil


Could the smoke be coming from the exhaust manifold on the passenger side of the engine? When the valve cover starts to leak, it is common for the oil to leak down and burn on the outside of the exhaust manifold.
Replacing a valve cover gasket is not difficult or expensive, and it is common for BMW valve cover gaskets to get brittle and shrink and start leaking every 10 years or so. My wife's 330 needed a new valve cover gasket at 6 years.

My 2001 Toyota Highlander is burning oil but does not show the symptoms of oil burning. After 500 to 1000 miles, the dipstick does not show any oil. What would cause this and what solutions are there?...


If you see no signs of burning oil ie blue smoke from exhaust, ticking from the engine, then most likely you have a valve cover gasket leak. The reason you wouldn't see the oil in the driveway is the oil is burning off on the exhaust manifold. Check around the valve cover gasket for seepage (usually around the bolts).

1993 Toyota Celica GT oil leak from front of engine block


The most common cause of all oil leaks is the valve cover gasket. The oil drips down from there and covers everything. If your valve cover is leaking, replace it first.

Then the second most common leak in the front of the engine is the crankshaft seal. This seal should have been replaced when the timing belt is replaced as you have everything removed to get to it, and the seal is easy to replace. However if it is not replaced at that time then you will have to remove everything again to access it. The seal is 3 or four dollars, but the labor is two to three hours and you should replace the timing belt, idler pulleys, tensioner and water pump when you are in there, as that will all be removed. Hope this help. Good luck :O)

1996 Toyota Celica. Oil warning light came on two weeks ago. Topped up immediately with 2L. Have driven the car minimally since. Today the warning light came on again. A kind neighbour checked it and...


Double check coolant to make sure you don't have oil floating on top. It's either an exterior leak, which would mean head gasket or valve cover gasket or it's an internal leak which would also mean head gasket. It it was burning that much oil in that a time, it would run poorly and you'd most likely get a check engine light.

2001 mitsubishi montero limited light on service engine soon 110000 milege burning smell from engine oil ok transmission oil ok coolant ok


look hard around your valve cover or your spark plugs holes especially #3 and #5. i found mine on 3 and 5 spark plugs. oil sometimes drip down to hot eng and smell like burn oil. possibility your valve cover that seal your spark plug hole is worn out and leak around the valve cover and straight down to hot area. replacing valve cover gasket is not easy and if you take it shop will cost you over $1000.00 because of intake manifold and a lots of hardwares to remove. shop around before you take it to the shop. if you do it your self with a friend make sure you take picture for every lines ,bolts sensor plugs and so on you remove. also may as well tune up or change your spark plugs. good luck

Usually no there is not another size gasket but make sure that you have the correct eng. size and whether the car is EPA or California emissions some toyota parts for some reason depend on this information.

Oil Lick


when the car is running do you have blue smoke from the exhaust? :If so then the piston rings are fried. If not then do you have oil on the motor around the valve covers? If so then the valve cover gaskets needs replacement.

Oil leak and oil burning


if your oil burning is upon start up then i would suggest you get your valve seals replaced while you are getting your valve covers done if its a non-stop while it runs then its your rings if you opt to get the valve seals fixed you would be looking at probably $250 but your gaskets would be included the deciding factor for me would be the amount of oil consumption and how much i would save in the long run good luck
