    Default Engine Oil of My Alto VXR 2008 getting lesser in quantity

    Aoa everyone
    My Alto VXR 2008 has a problem that its engine oil is getting lesser in quantity. I am using Zic A as engine oil.
    local car mechanic says that its rings are weak and need to be replaced at an expense of 8000/-.
    I need your expert oponion that should i go to replace rings of my engine and disturb my engine. or problem can be solved without operation.
    any help in this regard will be appreciated.

    When I got work done on my coure engine It also kept reducing oil. But after the first oil change (at around 4000 km). A couple of months back. It has not reduced any oil. Maybe yours will also get better after 3000-4000 kilometers.

    Just a guess.

    it proves we are using bad engine oil... even whole engine work your car reducing oil... that means current oil is not compatible with your engine

    Add if you want to. Add about 300ml, less then 500ml. Excess oil can cause touble.
