Based on your comment I can assume that there are no puddles under the car,no smell of burning oil coming from the engine,and no visible leaks.There are two possible ways for the oil to go under these conditions.1 that it is going out your exhaust because your head gasket is gone and is allowing oil into the combustion chamber or 2 your rings are worn and allowing oil into the combustion chamber where it is burning off.As for the rings, a simple compression test will tell you almost straight away if they are bad or not.The other is by taking it apart I'm afraid.Good Luck

Why susuki cultus reduce coolant level without over heating


Suggests sign of internal leak. Check dipstick for engine oil to see if there is a sign of coolant mixed with engine oil. (Generally foaming of oil instead of amber or dark solid color) (Could even show level is high due to coolant adding to oil and raising level.)
If there is, it's a very serious problem.
One quick way to try a very inexpensive fix that's worked for me is a product called Barr's Leak. (It's worked twice for me on two cars.) Get the expensive "copper" version (looks like liquid copper) and add to your coolant system following manufacturer's instructions. Top off coolant and then drive car for a couple of full engine temperature sessions.
If coolant then no longer goes down, change engine oil draining out old coolant that may have contaminated it and refill with new filter.
Keep an eye on level after that to see if coolant level remains stable.
If coolant still goes down, a engine over haul or new engine may be needed.

The reason for the reduced engine speed indicator


The reduced engine mode ( limp mode ) will activate when the sensor parameters are exceeded and the CPU recognises this as a potential damage to the engine and/ or gear box. It could be low oil level / pressure or coolant level low/ over heat or any number of sensors that protect the drive train. check the oil level and coolant level and have the fault codes read asap

Engine power reduced chevy impala


engine power reduced means that the CPU has placed the ECM in a safe operating mode and reduced power to lessen the risk of serious engine / transmission damage. Stop and check oil level and coolant level at the radiator cap. have the fault codes read urgently so as to prevent damage to the units

Oil light flashes after driving for a while


First check that the oil level is appropriate. If the level is in the proper notch in the dipstick, you might have serious problems. Oil is heavy when cold, and produces acceptable pressure. When the oil warms up, it is less dense, and its ability to produce pressure is reduced. If during normal warm up and driving, the pressure drops below what is acceptable for the engine, the oil pressure light will come on, warning you that major engine damage is impending. Stop driving the car, and take it to a shop for inspection.

Oil level and oil temperature are normal. Oil


Same here....I soon had the same problem after changing the oil..Found out after many tests and research that auto parts stores cross reference a lot of audi oil filters to the vw counterparts..Which do fit audi,but are shorter and lack the oil capacity to feed the engine.Then the pressure light pops on!!!! make sure the larger/longer oe type is installed.If your not sure buy it from audi its not much more than the napa brand.

Oil is dripping and touchin the exhaust pipe under the car making smoke could I drve my car until I get it fixed?


Whenever oil is getting on the exhaust the possibility of a fire can be fairly high, the amount of oil is key, if you just get a little puff of smoke now and then while driving you should be ok until you can find time or money to get it fixed, if it is really smoking allot then you shouldn't drive it.

CRV 2002 using excessive oil


If your vehicle has done a high mileage then it is time that the oil rings are worn out. If on the other hand there was a poor maintenance schedule , like changing of engine oil within a correct mileage, then you engine can be damaged.
the oil comes over to the combustion chamber to burn off , in such case you will get smoke in the exhaust.
If there is oil dripping due to any damage the oil levels can drop.
finally an oil seal along the drive shafts, the transmission side can also reduce oil.
so check this out.

Warnig oil stop but oil level fine.


When you say the oil level is fine, has it dropped at all in oil level even within the fine area?

Your oil sensor may faulty, or you may have a pressure leak somewhere since you said it occurs when you slow down (let your foot off the gas which will reduce the pressure). One known issue with golfs (hope it's not with yours) is that the rear engine seal often springs a leak and ends up leaking into the flywheel and transmission assembly.
