How much oil does it take????

Oops, sorry, missed it up the toptop.

My '96 K1100RS manual tells me it's 3.1 litres with no filter change, or 3.6 litres with a filter change. That's 6.5 US pints and 7.6 US pints respectively. Or 5.5 UK pints and 6.4 UK pints.

I have a mazda 6 2 litre diesel eating oil, what

Mazda say that if your Mazda 6 consumues less than a litre every 900 miles then it within tolerance.
However these cars have a complicated induction mechanism controld by lots of diffrent vacume pots that are inturn controlled by servos, when any one of these becomes faulty the pressure balance between the exhaust side of the turbo and the inlet side becomes inbalanced, resulting in oil being forced through the turbos bearings. Its that simple lol!
The first thing I would check would be the swirl control valve, In the inlet manifold, This gets fouled up by the exhaust gases getting recycled by the egr valve(exhaust gas recycler)
Sooty deposits mix with oil coming from your turbo and jam it closed restricting the amount of air into the engine, and reducing power as well as creating black smoke from your exhaust.
So my advice would be to get your egr valve proffetionally blanked off, and have your induction system checked over.
Hope this helps as I am sure this is a very common problem!

I have a mazda 6 2 litre diesel eating oil, what oil do I put in? The oil light keep flashing the Mazda people told me it was the oil switch had that replaced and still eating the diesel like mad. The car...

Check your owners manual for the grade and type of oil. Probably a CD4 15W40. Make sure you use oil specifically designed for diesel engines...just any old oil will not work. Also, stick with one brand; each oil manufacture puts different additives which "flush" out of the engine when a different brand is used. It may take a couple of changes with the same brand, but you should see a decrease in oil comsumption.

Going through lots of coolant

If your car is eating Oil and Coolant, you need to change your head gasket. To buy a head gasket Set costs about 75 bucks. To hire someone to replace them: about 800 bucks. Your car aint eating all that up. You have a leak somewhere.
