Oil burnout in a Car

#1
Saidieni hapa na maarifa. I normally do the 10,000km synthetic oil service. I noticed that i have to add at least 1ltr of oil after say 3,000 kms though no external leaks.. Is this normal? car looses power kwa milima pia.

Piston rings may be worn out.
Enlarged piston bores.
Leaking gaskets or seals.
Verdict, use heavier oils, but keep in mind you need an engine overhaul. You may opt for another engine depending on which is cheaper.

Car is burning oil. Oil sipping to the combustion chamber. Piston rings going out slowly.Usually when am buying a used car huwa naenda hapo kwa exhaust pipe napitisha kidole. If it comes clean without black soot najua engine iko ngangare. Kidole ikitoka na soot ya nyungu nakagua ndai zaidi.

Can you state the model and year of your vehicle. I can check for you. It is normal to burn oil every 1L/ 1000km for Toyotas, Audis, Subarus...Those are manufacturer specifications btw. Otherwise check your valve cover gasket. If you see oil (in places like below) , it may mean you need to change it. Otherwise you have a blown head. Pray for the former.

This is not an accurate method. A car running rich( bad injector) will give you the same symptoms.
