You should be able to ask the Subaru Dealership politely if this calculation exceeds the recommended interval by Subaru.

If it does exceed their recommendation. Your engine's piston rings are probably worn out, or possibly a blown head-gasket to an oil passage.

, about 1 litter per 1000 km.No smoke, no leaks, no loss of power. I fill oil in ( about 200ml) then oil level show correct. after driving a distance then oil level is low again.What can the cause be


have a wet and dry compression test done on the engine
compression pressure should be around 150-165 psi with a variation between adjacent cylinders or not more than 10%
If the compression is down to say 120 psi wet then the problem will be a worn engine
the smoke is there but the cat converter is doing its job and burning it off

My suzuki alto vxr 2004 has a problem that its engine oil is getting lesser in quantity. I am using Zic A as engine oil. local car mechanic says that its rings are weak and need to be replaced at an...


2004 , no miles on engine, stated, (odometer) 50k, 500k, what?
all engines burn oil by design. ALL !
only question is, how much, ?
miles /per quart
or KM per LITER.

if you ask any sharp mech, to fix oil consumption, HE WILL
Ching-ching..... after all you asked him, !!!!!
don't , no really dont.

post the consumption rates and ask.?
ive got like 1.5million miles in cars, and motorcycles.
and 300k or more in ships. (our ship burns oil only) LOL

the number 1 reason of excessive oil is driving too fast.
if you drive most cars 80mphy all the time, it will burn more oil
most cars new run about 1 quart of oil per 3000 miles.

I had one engine, a mazda, i drove it to the ground, as an experiment.
a 626, it was using a quart every 1000 miles
it took oil EVERY fill up. oils cheap so I fed it. why not?
the PO overheated the engine once and that is why.;
I rebuild engines so , know the reasons.... (retired now)

does tail pipe end smoke? , (end) first start, not steam,but oil smoke)?
only cold, ignore it.
does it hot?, its got issues. (rings)
if it loves toSMOKE , going down a hill fast?, and with foot off throttle
(high vacuum) and you look in rear view mirror and it's smoking
yes, that is valve seals bad, $10 in parts.
ask someone to follow you, and look for smoke, (easy,huh?)

if it smokes all the time?, and PCV valve is new (not clogged)
it needs rings. or like me, just drive it like you stole it, why not?

My Alto VXR 2004 has a problem that its engine oil is getting lesser fast in quantity. I am using Zic A as engine oil.local car mechanic says engine weak he says gas kit and engine head problem


is is odometer reading?
all cars burn oil if driven real fast, at 80mph, lots.
what i need is ,
1: speeds driven. avg.
2: and what weight, oil , is it hot there, sure, then run 10w-40 oil.
3: how many liters of oil per miles.
some cars go for years, burning 1quart of oil per 3000 mile.s
1L/5000 km to 1L /1000 km. (new car to old)
even more. on older engines.
if the engine runs good, drive it and change oil more often.
check oil at every petrol fill up, and learn what your engine needs
all engine burn oil by design. its a fact.

do an engine compression test.
2 times wide open throttle.
on a warm engine
if lower that spec, 150psi?
then add 1 teaspoon, of oil to spark hole , see if compression rises
if it does, its rings are old.
post the numbers, if all are 150 or more , drive it like you stole it.
half joking there, but drive it. and change oil often and check oil levels
every fill up or every other (depends on reality)

GASKET.
post the compression test readings. only NUMBERS count.
we need numbers and engine size.

Bmw 530i model 2001 230000 km i have to add l liter oil per 10 day due to oil leak. no oil spot under car but the mechanic told me the rubber between engine and gear box is leaking and no smoke. can...


STP won't stop the leak, only disassembling and replacing the seal. However, the car could be burning oil but the catalytic converter will complete the combustion of the 'smoke' to water (H2O) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

At 230,000 KM, I wouldn't be surprised that the rings are worn or the valve seals are leaking internally.

Engine oil reduces every 1000 km, what to do?


All VW product have plasma coated bores and for this reason will "use"oil.the workshop manual says "1 litre every 350 km is ACCEPTABLE".I have NEVER had a car THAT BAD,unless worn out.
check your oil every 500 miles MAX.and use 10/40 semi synthetic.(as per VW Europe/middle/far east manual.)change every 10k inc filter.

My 2005 Endeavor with 60000 km burns 1 litre of oil every 1000 km at highway speeds, about half that around town. Is this a normal occurrence or is there a problem with the motor?


Not normal, clean burning engine, mine has 220,000 kms's. Are you using a full synthetic oil? Tried it a couple times and it took 1 litre between oil changes. I use semi synthetic oil, no issues. How long has it been burning this amount of oil? Get to your dealer and have him fix your engine.
