    How much oil is it losing in 3000 miles? and how many miles do you have on it?

    It is common for a 9 year old car to burn one or two quarts of oil in 3000 miles, you will not see much visible smoke from this amount of oil. Unless you are having another problem, such as spark plugs getting fouled too soon, I would not worry about this. Just remember to keep it refilled as needed.

You almost never see smoke, since catylic converters. A quart at around the 2000 mile mark is considered excelent, so I believe that you do not have an issue.

Still, it would be nice to burn zero oil, certainly my preference, but that is not how it goes. Most manufacturers would not repair a new car unless it burned MORE than a quart in 600 miles. I would not be happy at all about that.....

One thing to consider it Caster oil High Mileage blend. It is semi synthetic, and has polymers that help seals and consumption. I really like partial synthetic... I have witnessed measured improvement on several vehicles that had consumption issues.

2002 montero sport, i am experiencing tapping/ticking noise in the upper head department of 3.6 v6 engine. i change my oil regularly every 3000 miles. i put in seafoam in gas tank hoping it would help...


hi putting seafoam in fuel will clean the valves and pistons over time to use to do lifters you need to add to oil measure out the right amount for the oil measurements on the can.. also the tapping is it more when its cold or just the same no matter hot or cold or is it more louder when hot. when was the last time the timing was checked, are you using 5w/30 or 10w/30 oil.

How often should I change the oil in my 2002 Nissan Frontier?


Some people change oil at 3000 miles,most people don't really care or keep track
I would say 3 times a year,if you drive less than 10,000 per year
4 times a year ,up to 20,000 miles per year driven
Use at least semi or full synthetic oil

How long will the engine last?


Engines are like us humans. The better care they get the longer they last
\Change the oil at every 3000 to 4000 miles and do the preoper suggested maintenance by Fords outline in their manual for a long life
I own a 2000 Mountaineer with 190000 miles. It still runs like new although the body is starting to rot
The oil is changed every 4000 or sooner
Tuneups are done at 65000
Suspension is checked every year

It depends on what kind of oil are you use.Better quality oil lasts longer(5000 miles).If you drive on cheap oil you better change it earlier (3000 miles).

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.

Low to no oil in 2002 Impala. No even 3000 miles.


If you are close to 3000 miles, change oil. Low oil will overheat and change chemically. While under there, take a look around and see where or if oil is leaking anywhere (should not be hard to find) After changing, run and check again while running. Providing you aren't getting a lot of smoke out the back, (burning it) likely you will find a leak, then fix it!
good luck

Fuel-consumption


Drive slower and easier. about 1 or 2 BELOW THE SPEED LIMIT DON'T PASS ANYONE . When you accelerate accelerate nice and easy watch the tachometer try to keep it below 3000 rpm all the way up to your cruise speed nice and easy don't worry about the guy behind you . Brake easy if you are coming to a light take your foot off and coast and try to time the light so its green when you get there. then EASY EASY on the gas keep it under 3000 RPMS all the time you are accelerating.
No special oil no special spark plugs or fancy air filters just factory parts whren you tune up every 3 or 4 years and change your oil about every 3 or 4 years yes 3 or 4 years it wont hurt it a bit just remember to always check the oil and add if it gets 1/2 Qt low. change the fuel filter EVERY EVERY 15,000 MILES fuel injection professional pressure cleaning once a year Air filter when it is dirty, please dont believe all those gimicks out there I have a car we change the oil about every 4 years and it has 350,000 miles no engine work yet runs every day passes emsssions every year no repairs needed fuel filters once a year or 15,000 miles
