It is not all that unusual for new engines to consume a slight bit more oil during the break-in period. Keep it topped off to the top of the range mark as much as possible, and I would recommend a change at the 500-mile mark, including filter.

Burning Oil


we check oil every other fuel fill up. on old cars, every fill up
did you run car 10,000 miles to a oil change? unstated.
1qt/3000 miles is perfectly OK.
so 10000 mles is 3.3 quarts burned and off the top of the dip stick
if you drive fast, it burns more, got a heavy foot, or load in back>?
if you had done it right, you'd have already learned YOUR engines
consumption rates, and learned to check when IT , needs checking
we do this on all engines. all machines.
all engines burn oil, the exception , a church car, new, and never driven, far, or fast or for 10000 miles to an oil change.

your mech, was right, he was thinking , you dont check oil?

DOES THE MOTO GUZZI GRISO 2007 USE A SMALL AMOUNT OF OIL AS NORMAL.


Depending on how much oil she uses.
Most engines use some oil and drip a little also.
Most older bikes use an automatic chain oiler which can go out of adjustment and dump oil everywher.
I would say 500 miles to a pint is OK.

My oil light just came on i check oil is fine no knocks or smells i am about 400 miles till i am due for an oil change could it be an oil pressure switch


First, check the oil level (as you did). If low, add immediately. If car is relatively new, your PVC valve may have stuck open drawing the misted oil to the intake and burning it with very little tell tail smoke, this would resolve missing/low level oil issue. If you don't understand the system, take it to your dealer. You could loose the engine with low oil pressure. Most pressure sensors open at 5PSI turning out the light on your instrument panel.

OIL


Yes it is perfectly normal. Your still breaking your bike it which means that all the brand new parts in your engine haven't had a chance to seat yet. This means that there are much larger clearances in all the parts that touch, such as the rings and cylinder walls. So what is happening is the oil is slipping past the unseated rings and getting burned in the combustion chambers.
Now if it is a real big difference I'd take it back to the dealer and let them know about it.
You should be coming up on your first service anyway (normally around 500 miles) so they should be able to take care of you.

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.

Oil overspill coming out of air cleaner/filter


Relax...... Harley's all vent oil thru the air cleaner, actually, S & S does to, except they put a overflow valve so it drips on the road rather than the engine. Various little things can cause the oil flow to increase, and yes, over filling, over heating, and sometime, just running balls out for awhile.

Its normal, and shouldnt cause any problems more serious than oil mist on yer engine ( and sometimes passenger)

Oil used in a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo


depends on your temperature, and where you live if it uses a little oil use a little heavier to cut consumption. If it is always cold where you live like below zero, I wouldn't use more than a 20w 30w. in warm climates a 30 weight oil is ok, but if you have low oil pressure you can safely use forty weight.

Engine noise


and it is brand new only 75 miles on it when i got it. At the 600 mile mark i did the valve adjustment and changed the oil, after another 100-150 miles, the normal ticking that you get from the motor started getting louder. I checked the adjustment on the valves again, they were good to go, and after another 50 miles or so i changed the oil again to make sure there were no metal flakes in the oil, which there werent. Do the 250's just get a little noisier as tehy break in? It seems to me its coming from the bottom end. It has automatic cam chain tensioners, so i dont think its that, and i have checked to make sure everything is tight like it should be. The ticking does go along with engine speed, and at 55-60 mph you can just barely hear it over the wind and road noise. I have worked on cars for several years, and i know some engines are just normally loud or ticky, but this is my first bike that i have ever really messed with. This normal for this bike? ,i had a 82 yamaha 650 and with 40,000 miles it was the quitest bike i ever had. i realize that doesnt really compare to ur bike but i wouldnt expect an engine to be louder after that few a miles. i would really suggest finding a forum especially for your bike (theres bound to be one) and asking around, its really a bike to bike difference ,,,
