I hope its not burning that much oil, have you looked for any signs of a serious oil leak on the ground where the vehicle is parked?

Engine ran out oil every 3 weeks


out? as in oil pan is empty or dips stick shows. ZERO oil?
weeks dont count.
1: miles only count , 1./3 quart (liter) per 3000 miles is good.
2:or drips on pavement.

btw i can do this on a new car, just driving way too fast i can drop oil level by 1/2 court in 1 week. about 500 miles.

tell how low the dip stick got in how many miles and speed you drive.
we have 85mph here and way faster on the autobahn.
no locating stated. here is USA< and dallas.

Hello, 1 quart in three thousand miles, great, awesome, wonderful don't worry about it. As long as you know it. This is normal for a lot of engines. For many Chrysler Motor Co. there engine would use a quart of oil in the first 500 miles and after that, none. Oil change, another quart in 500 miles.
I would drive that Chevy around the world. I wish you many hundreds of thousands of miles. GB..stewbison

2007 GMC Yukon using a quart of Oil every 2000 - 3000 miles


Sounds funny, I would take it to an indepened repair shop and have them check it out, we have many customer's with Yukon and have not heard of that, I have a GMC with over 315,000 miles and between oil changes, maybe a qts low, have it check else where.

1997 Yamaha YZF Thunderace uses 1/2 quart of oil every 200 miles


Replace standard rings with GTS1000 rings . I had Fzr1000 with same problem , at 187000 kms I pulled the barrels off and found no hone left , it was a smooth bore . Also replaced valve guide seals at this time also . Oil consumption dropped from 1 litre per 1000kms to 1 litre per 8000kms. Bike has now done 308000kms and still uses oil at the rate of 1 litre per 4000kms .

Excessive oil use


the time it takes to use one quart is not the figure I need, how many miles does three weeks represent? 1000 miles per quart is ok, less and you will need new rings in most cases, which of course means an engine overhaul.

Engine oil question


I was down 1/2 quart. Is it usual to burn that much oil in 700 miles or did the mechanic forget to change the oil at the 600 miles service? Husband bought a duplicate bike and he wasn't down at all. I can see being down 1/2 quart with a total mileage of 1100 miles (maybe) but not in the 700 miles since the oil change. Like a dummy I didn't check the fluids after the initial service. It looks clean, but I'm planning a 1200 mile trip next week and am not quite sure if this is normal...if you experienced guys think its okay, I guess I'll have to make room in my bags to carry oil! Any opinions appreciated...,1. Sounds like the mechanic didnt do his job right. 2. Just have your hubby do it. cheaper and you know its done right.......,,,
