Car has 22000 mi. At about 2200 mi. after service the oil pressure light
flickers and oil must be added. This seems to me to be excessive oil
consumption. I see no signs of smoke or leaks. What is considered "normal"
oil use for a 2.0 ford motor?
As a former Ford Service Manager I know Ford considers anything under one quart of oil use per 900 miles to be normal. I know its crap, but that is their specs
terrible fact, but with the high mileage comes oil consumption...my wife's own Prius which still gets near 50 mpg has 200,000 miles and drinks a quart every 500 miles~ but still works good~
Look at that - Mark and Bob agree
at least it ain't smokin~
