The magic fairy appears to be at work ,if its not leaking then its burning it ,which means valves guides or rings are worn ,and with your enviromental disaster monster engine you would not notice the loss in power in such a small vehicle ,we pull 40tons of loaded truck here with a smaller engine in europe

I have a 1996 Dodge Stratus ES 4 door Sedan. It is a 2.4. I had my oil changed in June of 2014. How long does an oil change last and when is it advisable to get it changed again? Thanks


oil change period is every 6 months or 5000 miles or 10000klms
however as the oil collects moisture from incomplete combustion any short runs that do not allow the engine to come to full operating temperature to boil off the moisture will need a more regular oil change
So if the car does runs of at least 1/2 hour the the 6 months will be ok
On the other hand if it is only used to go around the corner to a corner shop then more frequent oil changes will be required
Good policy is oil filter with the oil every 6 months or if more frequent with every second oil change

Toyota starlet oil consumption


4 liters in 6 month is abnormal, usual cause of oil loss is worn out piston rings, your car need piston ring replacement

2001 a6 2.8 buring too much oil, 1 every 1000 miles.


Mobil 1 is really thin,if you have as oil consumption
problem ,run a thicker oil,10-30 in the winter 15-40 in the summer
Suspect valve seals,not a cheap fix ,but a little oil burning makes the
engine last forever,run a thicker oil.

2002 xterra a/c freon leaks out but it's not the hoses.


The front seal on the AC compressor is very likely the problem here. It can leak with no apparent signs of leaking like older R12 systems because the oil used in the R134 system is synthetic and it evaporates.

Can anyone help i have a 98 range rover 4ltr leaking oil from the oil filter seal or houseing it's hard to tell but have tryed 2 new filters and have looked at the houseing it looks fine but stil


Either the oil leak isn't from the filter seal and is somewhere nearby or the oil pressure is unnaturally high, perhaps because the oil pressure relief valve is stuck closed.

Hi I have a 2001 Honda Accord 1.8 vTEC; I have used it sparingly since last year's service and MOT. Can I delay service by another 4-6 months so I can do the service and MOT, along with other services


Sorry old school dinasaur here ,no 5000/6000 miles a service ,sorry for being hard but that is my service schedule it also includes changing wheels around including the spare .Topping up battery ? oiling door hinges checking everything and oiling nuts on suspension so they dont go rusty ,spraying underneath with waste engine oil to prevent corrosion ,drilling a drain hole in boot if its not draining .cleaning light bulbs and greasing the buld contacts .maybe drill a hole in outside front floor pans if windscreen rubber is leaking .Think i should go get back in my coffin now before i get told off .

I have a 2001 Saturn L. Oil is leaking, it is not the head gasket. Tore engine apart and replaced gaskets. Stopped leaking for about 6-7 months and it started to leak again. Did oil change last week...


If you have no visible signs of oil leaking out of the engine then the oil is being burnt. By visible leaking I mean a small puddle of oil under the car after having been left overnight. This can be cured by replacing shaft seals and gaskets. Burning oil is visible as smoke under deceleration (no throttle) and under full power(flooring it). This is due to worn/old valve stem seals(smoke under deceleration) and worn oil rings(smoke under acceleration) This can only be cured by a major engine overhaul or engine replacement. Bear in mind that losing a pint of oil in 1000 miles is acceptable.

My 2004 audi A4 consumes oil at a rate of 1 1/2 quarts every 3 months. There are no apparent leaks and it is not burning it. It idles and runs smooth. Any suggestions?


How many miles/km's you drive in those 3 month's ? oil consumption is normal ! Check when you first start the engine in the morning wetter or not you see a puff of blue smoke, if you see smoke , your valve seals are leaking.
1 liter oil each 2000km is normal.
