- BC, Canada
Hi, I have a 2000 Toyota Corolla VE model car driven with 155K miles. I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada. So you can imagine the car sits in the external temperature of -2 to 30 C (In Fahrenheit: 28 - 86). Since last 2 years I have been using the Mobil-1 Synthetic 5W-30 engine oil and at times use the Lucas injector cleaner. My fluids are maintained well and tire pressures at 80% capacity of the tire wall metrics (new tires) and checked every 30 days. The average daily driving range comes to about 25 miles with 2 passengers. Since last 1 - 1.5 years I am seeing that my car is burning oil too fast, probably since 45 days after every oil change (at Toyota dealership) it dips to very low to almost none level. I have to put more oil manually. I don't know if this is normal Yesterday when I took some time to look at the engine oil cap I saw that the internal side of cap had too much of oil sludge and literally I had to take the sludge out from my fingers by scratching the stuff inside it. I don't know if this is unusual or very normal and if this is any way related to my car burning more oil. My guess to stop oil burning will any of the Rislone Engine Treatment or similar product you see like Dura Lube in Walmart work? Can anybody throw more comment on above 2 topics and what is my best solution for stopping it to burn more oil?
