My 2010 Toyota Prius keeps running out of oil (about once a month it is completely dry). It is not leaking because I have placed paper under it for several days and there is never oil on the paper.
Toyota Prius 2010 runs out of oil (dipstick is dry) about once a month. I drive alot -
freeway mostly. There is no leaking. I am using full synthetic 0-20 oil that is
recommended by Toyota. I have the oil professionally changed every 5000 miles. What
could be causing my hybrid car to burn so much oil?
Read through all 7 Pages on this link. I got through 2 of them, Check the PCV valve and you might think of going with a heavier weight oil due to all the highway mileage to slow down consumption........http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/t opics/2763986/1........In the meantime, check the oil more frequently, like once a week or before the dipstick is dry and add as required.
Mine does the same thing a.d a 2008 Prius! I now change the oil every 3000 miles aand still check it weekly...... it still goes low and i have add a little! It's a common problem so don't freak out like we did. Still a great car and we have 225,000!!!
