Try changing the oil and replacing oil with proper viscosity.

If this doesn't work, probably an engine overhaul is in order.
They will change the piston rings and check the cylinder head for loose valve stems and seals.

This is costly, though, but will et rid of the burning oil problem.

Many 4 cylinder cars with over 100,000 mi. commonly have this condition.

Most people just top off the oil if they don't have to pass an emissions test.

Good luck on this one.

burning oil usually is bad rings or vALVE SEALS either takes considerable man hours to fix so it will be costly . they do sell an additive for that but I have no idea if it works . I suggest you check the oil weekly or even daily , not monthly might save you blowing the motor completely

Cant get it to pass smog. i replaced the cat but still no go. How much is it to fix a fuel injection problem?


Try replacing the sparkplugs and running some injector cleaner through it." Smog " is basically a test to ensure your car is clean burning , A nice strong spark gives a cleaner burn reducing emissions.
If your car is burning oil , the additional oil in the emissions can cause a fail and Hondas are a bit prone to burning oil.

Nissan altima 2002 burning excesive oil what to


You have to identify where the oil is leaking. Check the spark plugs if it has oil, you may just need to replace the oil seal in the plugs. If you meant actual burning from the exhaust, you may want to check the head gasket and the piston rings if the oil seeps into the combustion chamber.

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

Audi 2.8 Avant burns oil


hi kieran,
ur problem is very easy to solve, but its an expensive fix..........($$$)

i dont know how much u know about cars, but every car with en engine(other than the Wankel) which has pistons......the pistons run in the cylinders of the engine block......at the top of the engine is where all the work is done, at the bottom part(just below the pistons), there is a lot of oil to lubricate all of the fast moving engine parts.....when a car burs oil what usually happens is that the oil goes up from the crank case, squesses between the piston and the cylinder walls and gets burned with the gas......and vise versa, at the power stroke the exhaust gasses enter the crankcase and slowly burn the oil that way.......so oil burns every 2 of the 4 strokes......there is 4 strokes in one rpm......idling is about 1500 rpm for ur audi....u do the math.......and the oil slowly burns........when the car heats up the oil burns even faster bacuse the temperature of the oil is already high.......
the pistons are equipped with piston rings to prevent oil from getting into the combustion chamber and exhaust gasses getting into the crankcase.......and the tolerance between the pston and the cylinder is also very important for the car not to burn oil......
tehre are a few ways to fix it.........the best and the most expensive would be to: bore out the cylinders, get new pistons (v6...) and get new rings, and u also might need to get the block and heads faced off(if there is any warpage....the heads are aluminum...).......
this process is called and engine rebuild and could cost u well over $2000 depending on what kind of quality u are looking for.......(its not worth it.....especially for this car, they are very cheap)...

the cheapest way to fix the problem about 75% would be just to get new piston rings.......but as soon as u take those heads off....shaving them is a must if they are warped.........and while u still have them off u might need to do the valves, which could also help the problem......and while u have the pistons out, might as well change them too...right???? so its spendy......

u might also have another problem,......a faulty gasket or o-ring, and the oil might be leaking from that faulty spot right on the exhaust, and might burn the oil that way...........that would defently explain the smell getting into the car.....if this is what is wrong, then the fix could be very easy, fast, and cheap...

if ur burning too much oil, it could be both of the problems at the same time.........plus a few more on top of that......

i hope this helps.........
....now if someone could only help me.......

i know u have posted this a while back, and probably have the problem fixed by now, but if this could help anyone else, then its not a usless waste of time......
