    I have Toyota Corolla 2001 with 105,000 millage. I have the same problem, burning oil. Even if I change the motor oil timely, after five and six days all the oil burnt out and it remains out of oil. Because of this I have obliged to check and add some oil everyday.

Losing alot of oil


have it checked for oil leaks, if there is no oil leaks or small leaks that won`t justify the amount of oil your losing then you engine is burning the oil. it could be stuck oil rings. there is chemicals that you can add to the oil to see if they will free up and stop burning oil. just because you don`t see a lot of smoke out the tailpipe doesn`t mean its not burning oil. another thing to check is the PCV valve as if it isn`t working properly can cause oil burning as well.

Burning oil


Not really. If your piston rings are worn down and letting oil into the top of cylinder where it can be burned, only an engine overhaul with new rings will stop it. Lucas oil conditioner products, Marvel mystery oil, anything like that might help a little, but won't stop the oil burning. Start saving money for a rebuild or replacement engine. Good luck.

Oil smell smells like it is burning oil last oil change was 3 months ago


Common causes of smelling "burning" oil are:
  1. a leak in the valve cover gasket. When oil leaks from the valve cover gasket, it will often burn off on the manifold.
  2. a blown oil seal causing oil to burn off on the exhaust system
  3. check your exhaust for "blue smoke" a sign that the engine is actually burning oil. Just guessing here but a 16 year old Volvo is bound to have quite a few miles on it.
I hope you found this post helpful in diagnosing your problem. Thank you for using Fixya! Greg

Engine burning oil no oil leak little smoke


oil leaks are hard to identify by the blue smoke that you used to see. most of this smoke is burned up by the catalytic converter. at least until all of that oil plugs the converter up. you can tell if your burning oil by removing the spark plugs, and checking their appearance against diagnostic charts redily available on the internet. oil burning will leave a distinctive residue.

Oil pump problem on 97 540i


No, if the oil pump went bad the engine wouldn't get lubricated at all, then it would sieze.

That's like saying I'm bleeding, my heart must be bad. Not so, no heartbeat, no blood pressure.

It's good news for the oil pump that it's burning oil, at least, the pump is moving oil around the engine for it to be burned.

Bad valves or piston rings will burn oil. Most likely piston rings

2006 Town & Country burning oil excessively. 40,000 miles; burning 1 quart every 1000 miles; no signs of the oil anywhere


At 40K miles it shouldn't burn that much oil, unless the motor has been abused or overheated. With no signs of oil leaks, the engine must be burning it via the exhaust,

Change the oil (use a good quality oil) and then observe oil consumption.

If it still uses excessive oil check further as below:-
1) if it blows blue smoke on steady accelleration (pistons or ring wear),
or
2) only blows blue smoke on initial accelleration after a period of steady coasting or de-celleration (faulty valve stem oil seals).

Car failed for visable smoke 93 marquis


A temporary solution for removing oil smoke. (oil burning )
Use synthetic oil with 3 cans of STP oil treatment with oil level brought only to the add mark on the dip stick.

The synthetic oil will burn clear and the STP will reduce the oil burning to almost 0 for a day or two.

To reduce antifreeze burning.......put a rad cap on that cannot hold pressure and is vented to the overflow bottle......rip the rubber gasket on the cap in two...leave half there.
This will cause no pressure to build up in the cooling system and should reduce antifreeze burning greatly.

REMEMBER.....if you have filled the exhaust system with a burning product....antifreeze or oil.....it will take time to burn off and out of the exhaust system.

These are temporary solutions just to get you through the test.
You may need major engine work to correct a smoking engine for long term use.

Engine oil


It is not unusual for an older truck to be burning a little oil. It is burning very little so you will not smell burnt oil or see blue smoke in the exhaust. But the oil burn does add up and you may notice a drop on the oil dipstick after a few weeks. On a 9 year old truck under normal working conditions will burn a little oil. If you are having to add 1 liter between oil changes, that is ok, just shows normal engine ware. 2 Liters is acceptable between oil changes if the truck does a lot of heavy pulling or work. 3 or more liters indecates a problem, but at that rate, you should be able to smell oil and see blue smoke.
