As far as that level of oil usage I personally would say: who cares. Now compression that's another story. If it passes compression and leakdown tests then I'd live with the oil usage, but others might not. Everyone has their own standards. For some, on high-performance equipment like this, they aren't happy with anything but like-new performance. That's the sort of thing you need to fiind your own way on.,,,

2000 buick lesabre has 64000 miles and uses a quart of oil in 3000 miles. Want to know what would cause this.


According to GM 1 quart per 1,500 miles is an acceptable oil consumption tolerance. 1 quart in 3k isn't bad.

I've had several gm 3.1 and 3.4 liters that have had there oil consumption issues remedied after the lower intake gaskets where replaced due to coolant leaking.

There are a couple of common problems that can cause oil consumption. Valve seals, bad rings, and PCV valves.

Valves seals would require a valve job which would requirethe removal of the heads. Rings would require a motor rebuild. Both of these are expensive options and oil is still pretty cheap.

Replacing the PCV valve might help. On the 3.8 it will be under the MAP sensor on the passenger side of the intake plenum.

As for as the intake gaskets, its a possibility but I don't have any hard evidence this could be the problem on a 3.8. Eventually the gaskets will start to leak oil. If you decide to replace them at that point I guess you will find out. I wouldn't do it on a hunch, its not a cheap repair.

I switched to the 15w40 diesel oil and my oil consumption dropped...


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.

Oil consumption, ...new crate motor, and seeing a


disconnecting the oil cooler is just the wrong thing to even think about,what do you think your going to improve by getting the oil hotter and no way to cool it down while your driving at 3000rpms.after the oil system is full the oil in the cooler is already accounted for,just check your oil level when the engine is cold,

I have a 2006 Buick Lucerne 3800 that I think has started to take exessive oil. it has 48000 miles and will take a quart in abot 4000 miles. I know thats not alot but at 24000 miles it didn't take a quart...


It should be minimal between oil changes. Even at 5,000 mile intervals you shouldnt see hardly any consumption. My 04 Avalanche has 88,000 and I just changed mine at 5K and didnt see any consumption. Look at the filter and drain plug on the pan and see if either of them are loose. Inspect around valve covers for leaks as well.

Unfortunately, the dealership will be a waste of time They will tell you that is normal and not to worry about it.

Chrysler 300 3.5 v6 Slight engine knock - oil always changed


I have a 2006 with a 3.5 (41,000 miles). No oil consumption but had the knock. Started as a slight knock and continued to get louder. My buddy works at the dealer and hooked me up. Chrysler knows about this problem, it's the rocker arm assembly coming apart. They have a new revised part to fix the problem. THEY NEED TO RECAL THIS.

I have a 2009 Honda Pilot. It has 14775K miles on it. We have been using the oil indicator light to dictate when to change the oil. We have only replaced it once. We used Mobile Synthetic 5W-20. NO...


i say change your oil every 3000 to 3500 miles no matter what any little monitoring system says!!!!!!
oil is the lifeblood of the car and is the key to a great, long lasting vehicle.

Using to much oil a 2002 accent with 76k. uses about a quart every 1k miles. dop i need to adjust the valves?


That's within acceptable limits according to Hyundai Motor America's standard: For a proper diagnosis, the amount of oil consumed over a known mileage should be checked three times and then averaged.The accumulated mileage divided by the total amount of oil added will give the consumption rate in miles per quart. If the oil consumption rate is greater than 1 quart per each 1000 miles, further diagnosis may be required.

Fuel consumption 1991 trooper 2.8l


Yes, GENTLY break the motor in to about 1k miles after that, change the oil/filters and you will slowly see an increase in your mpg. I had the same problem with mine. Now has 60k on new motor and I get a consistent 20mpg on the hwy. City mileage is about 12.
