My ride is a pajero with a 4m40 2.8L diesel engine, after using the SUV at high rpm, i always add almost a liter of oil, tried fo find for leaks but there isnt any, there was an instance wherein i drove almost 60 kms at high speed, around 120 to 160kph, after which i had to add around 3 liters of oil, could you help me out, hope to hear from you soon, thanks very much, Boyet of Batangas, Phillipines
Yor turbo is sucking it through intercooler check to see if intercooler is oily when you take off hose if it is, then disconect tappet pan hose from torbo intake driveand see make sure to put intercooler hose on back . if oil is still going you have back presure or turbo needs repair
My pajero 4m40 engine reduce little engine oil at minimal level and when he top cover engine oil cup was removed a noticeable amount of oil showered up and a white smoke also emits. can anybody helps me to solved.
Sounds like a costly repair. Check engine compression. Sometimes, the piston ring gap align having it as a broken piston rings but actually not. Check the color of the smoke, since it is fed by diesel fuel. If you see something like a blue smoke then it's eating your oil.

White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.
If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.
I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.
Great engines using Bosch injection. This should be physically inspected for anything that may be missed but it really sounds like you have an internal leak in the pump causing excess fuel to be delivered to the injectors. If this is the case, the pump can be rebuilt but only by someone qualified with these. If you need removal instructions, let me know. Air leaks will not cause this on a diesel engine.
4d56 is a diesel engine, fuel, oil, air filter change definitely,
regular oil change, check tyre pressure, etc all basic things u can do
yourself, after all its no 40+ MPG modern diesel engine its been around
for years and years and being used in courier van, pajero and delica, i
have a Delica with 4D56 turbo and its loves drinking diesel like no
tomorrow, run it on veggie oil like i do you wont worry too much about
your fuel consumption.
any 15w/40 diesel oil is as good as another in todays world,toyota oil is one of the major companies oil anyway,if you stick to caltex esso shell ,bp any of the major oil producers you cant go wrong ,,even pensoil valvolene no worries
Diesels do lose a little oil out the blow-by tube. If the engine temp. is higher then normal then you will lose more then normal amounts. If you are not leaking it then you are burning it, Possibly worn rings, head-gasket, or oil leak inside turbo. 68 MPH and higher doesn't sound unusual, is the engine still stock?
this is an oil pressure problem, either a sensor is not sensing enough oil pressure, or the high pressure pump is not building enough pressure(possibly leaking or head is leaking). this engine requires 450 psi minimum oil pressure at the injectors to actuate the injectors.
