Q: Engine oil consumption problem

asked by on

My car burn oil engine very bad that I have to add at lease twice befor next oil change

My car has 235500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: Every engine will use some oil as a result ...

Every engine will use some oil as a result of normal operations to keep the motor lubricated. For a Toyota engine between oil changes, you normally would use up to a quart of oil for every 750 miles driven. If you have to add more than a quart of oil every 750 miles, then you may need to have the piston rings replaced in the engine. In most cases, the engine would need to have a complete overhaul or replacement. If you are using less than a quart of oil every 750 miles, then this is considered normal oil consumption for this engine. For additional professional help, consider contacting a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, to evaluate your oil level issue.

Q: Oil type - 1999 Toyota Camry

Hello. I would suggest not putting in 20w50 oil as it is too thick and can cause engine damage from tight areas of the engine that will not get oil. You should use 5w30 only.
