Some of the 2.0 liter cars just burn a lot of oil, some don't. Mine burnt oil from the day I drove it off the showroom floor. It's an '07 model but I bought it in '06. I have about 105,000 on the clock now. Organic and synthetic oil both burn at about the same clip.Good read here fellas, just acquired a used high mileage FG2 and it was low on oil. Will be going to use rotella since that is what i used on my last car, a boosted b16 em1
how much oil do you use in say 1000 miles?I have a question regarding oil. I have a 07 si and I've noticed it has been burning oil for awhile now. It doesn't shoot out white smoke and its not leaking at all, and I haven't noticed a change in performance. I has headers and exhuast (no cat) and I hit vtec multiple times daily. Before I do compression check wanted your guys thoughts.
I have tried running a heavier weight oil. I'm pretty sure it was 10w30. I didn't notice any changes. I even tried going bacl c to organic oil (switch from synthetic) to no avail...So I've burned about 3/4 a quart in 850 mi. I have No leaks. It's Burning way too fast. I Have about 111670. Sees vtec everyday. Anyone experience this much burning of oil in our k20s? Has anyone tried upping the weight of they're oil? I have Been using 5w30.
You are going to have to check and add oil much more often. Letting it get down to a single quart of oil is crazy! You most likely caused some damage to the internals. Regardless, just make sure to check/add oil every 500 miles or so. I have no idea what could be causing it except for maybe a bad piston ring. As far as taking it apart, I wouldn't... Then again, I'm no mechanic...I'm burning about 3 quarts every 5k miles. Put full synthetic and noticed it when I had about a quart left after 4-5k ish miles. Something I should look into further and take the engine apart of this pretty normal? I have Around 75k miles on an 09 si.
