Well looking at the age of your car,it would need a valve seals replacement,in order to fix your problem.This would cost you around for about 1500-2000 $.

Has anyone had a problem with excessive oil consumption?


just about everyone does with either an old car or a new car with high mileage.how excessive? is oil consumption.well first thing is to check for oil leaks either underneath the motor or any oil lines feed into the motor .any major leaks would be pretty noticeable.if none are present then one would assume that your motor is burning the oil through the exhaust system .check to see what color smoke is coming threw the tail pipe.blue or black smoke indicates oil burning white will indicate engine coolant burning.in any case some color smoke is normal just depends on how much.so lets say your exhaust smoke is normal still could be burning oil just not a noticeable amount.on average you shouldnt have to add anymore than 2 quarts a month or every 1000 miles .depending on your driving conditions if you are having to add more than this there would be a leak some where or heavy color smoke.keep up on oil changes and always add lucas oil usually 1 quart its alot thicker than conventional oil so it reduces engine wear and will handle any small leaks in the engine components like the pistons and rings.if problem still present get to a dealer or certified mechanic as soon as possible good luck.

Tip

I own a 2001 Toyota corolla, I am burning about a quart of oil every 300 miles....


Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.

Toyota burning oil


If you are sure it has no leaks, the only other possibilities are worn oil rings or valve stem seals. Generally if the oil rings are worn then the compression rings are as well, so get a compression test. If readings are down on spec, which is about 150 psi., add a tablespoon of engine oil to each cylinder in turn through the plug hole. If readings rise, then it is worn rings at fault. If not, then suspect the valve stem seals.

On these engines though, there are several characteristic oil leaks which may be hard to spot, being the cam cover gasket, crank nose seal, and the distributor o-ring seal.

Engine burning oil


you should be checking the Oil Level more often than 5K miles but my 2009 Toyota Corolla burns oil (Not a LEAK), just consumes oil (1 Quart every 2K miles). It has done this since it was Brand New and Toyota said (ADD MORE OIL).... So that is what we have done. Watch the level and make sure you add more.

My toyota altis 2004 consumes engine oil,about 1 litre per week?


Whats the milage on it?
you seem to have a serious leak, have you checked if it leaves an oil puddle after you parked overnight, if not, try that next morning.
Is is burning oil, do you see blue smoke come out of the tailpipe, if you do, then you are seriously burning oil, engine is asking for an overhaul...
Good luck...

I just bought a 2000 Toyota Corolla 85000 miles. Its burning oil up to a quart every 2 days! The dealership says it could be so many different things? I did'nt get warranty and the Toyota dealership says...


Sounds like you're not burning oil (blue smoke would be a good indicator of this) but you're leaking oil. Most likely source considering how much oil you're losing would be the valve cover gasket. Look under the hood for any pools of oil under the air breather pan around the valve cover. If you're not seeing oil on the ground where you park, it could all be burning off on the manifold.
If it's not the valve cover gasket, then next likely source could be oil seals.

Nissan maxima, high oil consumption on 2002


If you love the car as you say than be prepaired to shell out the bucks for a rebuild or replacement engine, because thats the only fix for your situation. You may not see any blue smoke but believe me its burning it, or you got a leak witch you say you don't. Its going someware and most likely its out the exhaust.

Spark plug replacement


The recommended milage is 60k miles for the plugs.I wouldn't wory about anything else except.Keep a clean air filter change the oil when required and check the trans fluid as it likes to discolor easy.So a simple drain and refill often helps.It is like a oil change they have a drain plug on the pan (very nice).It takes about four quarts of fluid and the dipstick will tell you what type of fuid to use it is stamped on the metal by the level marks.Good luck Thanks for using Fix Ya

Oil disappearing with no visible leaks and engine not using oil.


Check out this thread and take your Caddy for a couple of Wide Open Throttle runs on the Interstate. Clears out the carbon buildup on the rings that is causing oil blowby.
