Ford just replaced my F-150 5.0 engine for that level of consumption. Mine was leaking through the heads somehow. Had oil in the cylinders in the morning after sitting all night.Dealer would call that "Normal Consumption". Just think of it this way, your piston rings are well lubricated, so the engine will last forever!
Do the WOT thing from time to time and see if that helps. Sometimes it's not best to drive like an old lady.
The WOT procedure was first related to some of us long ago by a GM engineer. Specifically for dealing with low tension rings and carbon buildup in the ring pack of Northstar engines.Which is what precisely?
I used to follow that up with collecting the neighbors dog potty from the yard, but thats another thing.My routine on sunday morning is to wake up have coffee, and check oil in both cars, and top off oil and washer fluid as necessary. Takes five minutes.
My 4.6 Fords liked to use oil. I never had tailpipe smoking issues either. Every 1000 miles. Add a qt. So, they burn enough, but not enough to show any visible signs. Your's is likely doing the same thing. I was lucky that I never had to change a cat converter. Changing grades of oil made no difference. We probably both had/ have low tension oil rings. Unfortunately, there seems to be no remedy.I have a 2017 Mazda CX-5, 2.5L It has 160,000 miles on it now. Where does the oil go between oil changes. I did an oil change yesterday an it was 2 qts. low before the change. This has been happening for a couple of years now. Does not smoke, no oil light, engine has never been overheated, runs great, no problems. Overactive PCV system? Could it be the oil or is it just a hot running engine. I change the oil regularly every 5000 miles. Using Super Tech 0-20 full syn. I know it’s not burning oil, did a spark plug change a few months ago. I don’t know if this is normal or not. Thanks
