Greetings, just checking to see if anyone knows about or has had some experience on this problem.
I have a 2004 and I bought it used with 11,000 miles on it.
I have used Mobil 1 since I had it.
The car developed what sounded a clicking sound and I solved that by putting in some Risoline and that did the trick.
Around 90,000 miles it started to be a 1/2 quart down and then got progressively worse..
I just came back from a trip to Michigan and I was stopping for gas and oil check at every 1/2 tank.
Going around 190 miles per half tank and adding a 1/2 to a full quart per half a tank of gas. Driving around 75mph, the entire trip was about 1500 miles and I went thru almost 6 quarts of oil.
I have no leaks, nor is the engine wet. My tail pipe is carboned up but I also do not see any smoke coming out the tail pipe on either accelerating or when its backing down.
I am going to bring it in for a compression check next week.
I am thinking that it might be a valve seal....not sure because even though I was driving fairly steady my oil consumption was up and down.
Any thoughts or help would be great.
