What make/moder is it, a 2 or 4 stroke? Either way it sounds like the piston rings are worn which is a top-end engine rebuild. You could probably keep driving once you're topping it up with oil.

SOURCE: burning oil

Either the rings are bad,or the valve seals are bad.

SOURCE: Honda CB250 ticking after it ran out of oil

The ticking noise you hear is most likely a sticky valve. I would be concerned about the oil consumption , sounds as though it maybe still under warranty. I would take it in and address the issues

SOURCE: I want to know is it true that 4stroke motor uses

All four stroke motors use straight gasoline or benzin. Only 2-stroke engines use a gas (benzin) + oil mix. Even some later model 2-stroke engines run straight gasoline and have a pump that mixes the oil with the gasoline. Most 2-strokes built after the mid-70's have the pump. You can easily by examination of the throttle cable. If it's equipped with a pump, the throttle cable will split from one cable on down to two cables where it enters the engine. Read your owner's manual.

SOURCE: Engine oil appears to be

Check your oil level . If it is too high smell the oil to see if it is fouled with gas. If your carb needle sticks the carb may over flow filling the engine. When the engine is too full the breather blows the oil and gas into the air box. Another way to get gas in the oil is if the fuel petcock malfunctions and pours gas into the intake manifold. If the diaphragm of a vacuum petcock gets a hole in it , the engine may flood with gas. The gas flows into motor and past the rings. If you look under the engine in front of the rear wheel you may see a tube with a plug in it. Place a pan under the tube and pull the plug. It is a pollution tube for emptying the crud out of the bottom of the air box. Some Honda's used to fill there engines with gas randomly. If it happened you just changed the oil & air filter, and kept on driving. It just happened for no logical reason. So check your petcock and carbs for problems, change your oil and air filter, and always turn your petcock off when not riding.

at what speeds? 50 , 90 (we have 85mph highway in texas)
pCV working,? if not it may burn oil.

ok oil can not just go away , like tax money out of pocketes or deflation.
not ever.
1: stolen oil, nah.
2: burns it, sure.
3: leaks it , no you'd see it at every stop.
4: leaks it to cooling system., no. the down draft 02 does nothing but checks cat for health so does nothing, releated to this.

it's burning it. but you dont see it because you are not following you.
I see it, i smell it.

bad rings.
bad valve seals.

2006 Cadillac cts is burning gas faster than the normal rate after i got an oil change at jiffy lube 2 weeks ago


I dont think there is a connection between an oil change and the gallons per mile.
With that age car, I suggest a Terra engine clean. It will blow away nine years of gunk from the spark plugs, fuel injectors, cylinders and exhaust. Should give you more power, more miles..

White smoke coming out of tail pipe.


WHITE smoke? Or BLUE smoke? White smoke is usually caused by burning antifreeze (possible blown head gasket). Engine oil burning causes a bluish colored smoke.

Changing the oil two months ago means absolutely nothing to me. I have customers that travel 6000 miles or more in a month. Oil consumption is measured in volume over miles, not volume over months. It is normal for most 4 cylinder engines to use a little less than 1/2 quart in 1000 miles (even more than that for 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engines).

1995 Mitsubishi Diamante is overheating. Oil pressure light came on - oil was low 2 quarts. Added oil, drove down the street, temp gauge went to Hot. Let car cool down. Drove home, check engine light came...


something is strange here thats for sure ,firstly take thermostat out and put it in a saucepan of water and boil it to see if opens .,check the oil light switch and pull the rubber boot cover back to see if any oil is behind it ??.-You are buying trouble with a car with such a high mileage on it ,never buy anything with more than 50,000 miles or you are just buying someones rubbish

Honda CB250 ticking after it ran out of oil


Is there any area on the bike that is covered with what seems to be "wet dirt"? It is entirely possible you could have a blown seal and are therefore dumping oil. If the dipstick is showing nothing, there is not enough oil for the engine and it will seize so don't run it until you locate the source of the leak.

Unless the bike has constant white or bluish-gray smoke coming out of the exhaust all the time, it's not burning oil.

The tapping you are hearing could be a a lifter, valve, connecting rod...whatever it is, the tick started recently and you don't see oil on the dipstick, there is a major oil leak somewhere.

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.

High oil consumption 2001silverado 4wd, 4 door 6.0


Every manufacturer has a guideline.  But a quart every 1,000 miles seems higher then necessary.  Try the easy steps first. 1.  Check the PCV valve if clogged will caused pressure in crankcase and oil burning. 2. Remove spark plugs and perform visual inspection.  IF electrode is covered in gook(technical terms, sorry), then oil is leaking into that cylinder.  Most likely cause would be faulty valve stem seals. 3. Worse case scenario, engine oil rings are leaking.  If all else is good.  Perform compression test of each cylinder recording measurement, then add two small squirt of engine oil into each cylinder as you perform a second round, complete both dry then wet compression test on each cylinder before proceeding.  IF any cylinder shows a more significant increase in compression then it would indicate that cylinder's oil rings are faulty.  This is a major repair.  Keep me posted
