2010 Sentra burning oil

20

Asked by Jul 04, 2014 at 07:52 AM about the 2010 Nissan Sentra 2.0 S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi there
I purchased a used 2010 Sentra almost 3 years ago. I do a lot of driving and in the last 3 months have had to add at least 2 liters of oil before the scheduled oil change. The mechanics that have looked at the car on the hoist said there do not seem to be any leaks. Does that mean it is burning the oil? What are some recommended fixes for this? Thanks

Check the PCV/crankcase vent system. Is there oil in your throttle body and or air intake? If not, you might be burning it. Worn Valve seals or piston rings can contribute to excessive oil burning. Is there blue smoke coming out of your tailpipes? How many miles on the engine? If not, just continue to check the level on a weekly basis and add when needed.

Hi there There is about 119000 kms on the car and I take very good care of it. No blue smoke or anything, and no change in performance. I can ask my mechanic to check those things out as I have no idea what they are :)
