It sounds like your valve seals are getting old and are leaking oil into your pistons.As long as it is not using a lot of oil or fouling your spark plugs drive the heck out of it and look the other way when you first crank it up in the morning.
One other problem that will cause this is a cracked head or a leaking head gasket which is getting water on your pistons overnight. Watch for #1 low antifreeze in your radiator #2 higher than normal engine temperatures. This could be a serious problem that could cause expensive damage to your engine if not corrected.

If you are using that much oil you either have a BIG leak or your BURNING oil through bad rings

Try cleaning your engine with an engine flush such as AMSOIL engine flush and then draining your oil once the flush is complete. It will clean the interior of the engine and drain out the contaminants. Once this has been perfomed replace the old oil with completely synthetic AMSOIL or Mobil 1. These oils are know for there ability to clean an engine and to reduce the chances of sludge formation in toyota engines. This is a good place to start before you go spending thousands on a new engine!!

A dirty air cleaner will cause an engine to use lots of fuel and still appear to run fine especally in cold weather. If you have not changed your air cleaner in sometime do so and note the difference.

Also a sticking EGR valve i.e stuck closed at highway speeds / passing / starts and stops can rob you of fuel economy.

If you know any half way good backyard auto mechanics they will know how to test an EGR valve with an external vacuum hose.

Thanks for using FixYa!

WHY Nizzan 07 Black smoke coming out tailpipe and consumption of oil


There are several things that can cause black smoke. Leaking fuel injectors, stuck valves and so on. Oil consumption can be from a leak, bad seals and a dozen other things. Your best bet at this point would be to take it to a mechanic before you do some catastrophic damage to your engine.

Abnormal exhaust smoke


definitely an oil consumption problem. How many miles? Could be worn rings and or valve guides. The oil light on when hot indicates low level or possible or weak oil pump. Check compression for possible head gasket or cracked head. I wouldn't drive it untill diagnosed.

High oil consumption, but no visibleleaks: on a 2002 Toyota Hilander V-6. I suspect valve seals (vehicle was sitting for several months), but wondered if there was some other possible source. Only one time...


Hi,normaly if the stem cills are worn it would smoke on start up,as when the engine is switched off oil will pass the cill and couse a puff of smoke untill the oil burns off,it could be that the head gasket has a falt where oil leaks strate into one of the cylinders,or maybe the where the car had not been started for awhile the piston rings might have frosen a bit,you could try a engine flush and see if that helps,in the past I have used a aditive called slick-50 which gave good resalts,remeber as I have not seen the car this is all food for thought,hope this was some help,hope you sort it.

White smoke coming out of tail pipe.


WHITE smoke? Or BLUE smoke? White smoke is usually caused by burning antifreeze (possible blown head gasket). Engine oil burning causes a bluish colored smoke.

Changing the oil two months ago means absolutely nothing to me. I have customers that travel 6000 miles or more in a month. Oil consumption is measured in volume over miles, not volume over months. It is normal for most 4 cylinder engines to use a little less than 1/2 quart in 1000 miles (even more than that for 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engines).

Occasional heavy smoke on tickover, but not using oil and oil clean.


HI do you now the color of the smoke
if engine emits white smoke its not burning the fuel
it could be water mixing with fuel = head gasket even tho you
dot have water in the oil
if engine emits black smoke - that's excessive fuel to air ration
check air filter & air inlet to see if clogged

if engine emits blue smoke - excessive oil consumption
cloud be valve seals

Smoking from tailpipe


If black smoke then it can be excess fuel and might need a retuning of the engine. If the smoke is bluish then check on the oil consumption of the engine. It will be due to poor oil rings/compression rings that allow the oil to seep through.
so in both cases the smoke is not a healthy sign of the engine and needs attention.

My 2004 audi A4 consumes oil at a rate of 1 1/2 quarts every 3 months. There are no apparent leaks and it is not burning it. It idles and runs smooth. Any suggestions?


How many miles/km's you drive in those 3 month's ? oil consumption is normal ! Check when you first start the engine in the morning wetter or not you see a puff of blue smoke, if you see smoke , your valve seals are leaking.
1 liter oil each 2000km is normal.

Smoking at higher rpms


Hi, its time for a ring set job in this vehicle. the blue smoke is a sign of major oil consumption due to bad piston rings. you also have faulty valve seals as well. this is deep engine repair and it will be costly.

If you cant do this job soon, be sure to watch the oil consumption by checking the level regularly and, monitor the oil pressure as well.
