Hi I have a Nissan Pathfinder 4.0 v6 2007 last week we decided to go on a road trip 2200km the vehicle doesn't blow smoke and starts and drives like a new car but it went through 8litres of oil!!!


Are you sure the oil is not leaking, instead of being burned? Also, are you absolutely certain the oil was being added to the correct place and was/is being checked correctly? If you were burning that much oil you most definitely should have noticed smoking exhaust and probably smelled it as well.

My infiniti is consuming oil at least 1 qt, i have to refill every week. what can it be somepeople have telling me the PVC valvue, the oil pressure o rings, bad pistons and people telling me that they...


1 a simple compression test will tell you if the rings and valves are bad. thats where you start.. 2 it could be an oil leak under the vehicle , you will see a black spot. do this first it only takes a look whee you park it on dry clean pavement or place a clean piece of cardboard under it.

Blue smoke


Blue smoke (how many miles on engine, 50k or 500K???????
to some this means, burning oil, others steam
it that blue smoke lingers a long time that is oil burning
and smells just like oil burning.
and means 2 things,
1: engine burns oil.
2: if car had autotmatic trans the vacuum modulator love fail
and suck ATF fluid to the intake plenum and burn it, and bingo burning oil like mad.
3: PCV valve packed solid,and forces engine to leak oil or burn oil. or both. this is a 50k miles service point, skipping this?
4: gas in the oil making it thin and not sneaks past valve stems.
does oil change cure this.>?

now engines.
worn out engines smoke. (burn oil)
as do bad valve guides and seals.
and bad piston rings.
100 years same story, and miles matter. History on engine too.
matters.

Coolant disappearing


If you are adding coolant every week, and you don't see any external leaks, the coolant is probably being burned thru the engine.
You can burn a couple of quarts a week and not see any smoke.
At some point in time you could pull the spark plugs and find evidence from the burning coolant.
Most common cause is a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

Bought the envoy w/ 70,000 miles, fresh oil change. @ 74,000 miles it was 1.5 qrts low, put in 5w30, checked oil 2 weeks later it was 1 qrt low. do not see smoke or any leaking.


I just bought a 2005 envoy too. I read in the manual that the 4.6 6 cyl engine needs 7 qts total. 2 Over the normal oil change. Is it possible it wasn't low to start? I noticed when Walmart changed the oil they charged extra for the change because it needed the two extra qts. However my dip stick has oil over the full mark. Seemed strange but I haven't had any leaks and after 3k mile no change in level. Make sure you had the correct about the first time.

I have a 1997 Saturn SC2, it has an oil leak and is smoking bad


The smoke sounds like its burning off any oil accumulating in the exhaust, and only goes down to the point where the crankshaft stops splashing in the oilpan.

Bought an 07 avalanche used at 30k miles. Burns about 2 quarts of oil every other week. No oil stains in driveway. White smoke occassionly when starting up. Dealership doesnt have a clue.


Replace the driver side valve cover. It leaks internally into the pcv system and gets burned. you don't see much smoke because the catalytic convertors burn it up.

Burning oil


Hi again,

For some unknown reason(s) the Live Session/Chat was disconnected. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

In any case to finish the 2nd suggestion. You may want to discuss this issue (smoke and oil consumption) with your dealer. Cite a Lexus Technical Service Bulletin specifically addressing this issue "Excessive oil consumption caused by sludge buildup on the cylinder heads. Company is extending warranty. (1997-2001)".

You may want to reference this USA Today article or the discussion in this page.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
