    Changing oil makes engine burn it faster?

    I will switch to a 10w-40 oil to see if I lose it at the same rate as before. My transmission gears are long/tall so that maybe why?

    Changing oil makes engine burn it faster?

    My engine was never rebuilt, the old one was taken out and a new entire engine was put in the year 2006. It's a stage 3 racing block, with a crank scraper included. I will change to a heavier weight oil soon, either a 10w30 or 10w40 and if I experience the same type of oil loss then I will do a...

    Changing oil makes engine burn it faster?

    I have thought about it, however I still have the stock trans from the factory, it was tuned by the previous owner and can hold all the power and torque pretty well. The highest temperature I've seen was 182 degrees fahrenheit after changing the oil and filter in the trans and doing a flush also.

    Yeah the scanner is an old model from 2011, it was gifted by my neighbour before he passed away so that's the only scanner I have. I did some googling and the 3100 series scanners does not have the live data option. I can get my car scanned again for free by the previous owner of my car, he has...

    I have an Innova 3100abs obdII scanner and when I press the DTC button, nothing happens on the screen. I even went to vehicle info and no VIN was available for the scanner to read.

    I just hooked up my scanner to my car but I'm unable to get any readings because the way my scanner works is if a trouble code is present then I can access more information like fuel trims, etc. I don't have any codes stored on the computer, therefore no information. The only information I can...

    Changing oil makes engine burn it faster?

    Okay I will. I don't have the hptuners program or a laptop but I have a scan tool than can measure fuel trims, etc. I'll see if I can get any readings from it.

    Changing oil makes engine burn it faster?

    I see. Like in my case running a 5w-30 oil was too thin and I guess got worn out over the years? I did not receive any special instructions when buying the car other than the previous owner telling me that when filling the oil I shouldn't fill it up to the fill mark on the dipstick because it...

    I live in hamilton, ontario. At the time there was absolutely no one on the highway coming up or down, this was like 4 in the morning.
