    Do a compression test and it will tell the shape of the engine.
    Any kind of blue or white smoke??

    Toyota mentions in the owner manual reduction of 1litre engine oil per thousand kilometres as NORMAL . Practically a Toyota car doesn't reduce this much of oil ,even after driven for 200k kms , unless it has some history of overheating . Anyhow are you first owner of this car ? And since when it has started this ? How much oil you pour in at the time of oil change ?

    If car is really burning 1 litre per 1000 km , it should be resulting into noticeable blow from exhaust .

    Dear thanks for ur early reply. I am the second owner of this car and half mean about 100k drove it so far. I got its compression test about 8 months before and one piston was weak at about 110-120 while others were about 150. I tried to check smoke but nothing like smoke there. There was another problem that engine oil leaking from timing plate that i corrected and refitted now its ok no leaking. I thought oil reduction is due to leaking 5 months back but after that probelm still exist. Initially it reduce 1 litre after 4000km. But now i also have reduced its use. Now i drive it only local lahore about 800km per month. I purchased 4 litre coolant to flush the radiator but still not until the current problem diagnosed. Kindly suggest some.....

However it still reduces oil around 1 litre per 2500Km... I use liqy moly 10w 40....I have driven 20,000km after over hual and same fault... No smoke, car is fine but just oil reduces.. it reduces a lot when I drive on motorway...from where can I do compression test in Islamabad? and how much does it cost..Thanks

    if you dont have any oil leaks and still are using about 1 litre per 1000 kms with a modern oil like that - then I would suggest you pull the spark plugs and inspect them - if they are crusty white you have a valve seal problem.

    normal oil usage is about 1 litre after about 6000 kms.

    It would also be beneficial to inspect the PCV and breather pipes for blockage, also make sure the engine gets to normal temperature within about 5 minutes.

    Sallam brothers..
    I have checked the car oil chamber and under timing cover..the area was damped with oil but the strange thing is oil drops r not spilled on parking floor..mechanic told me that the oil might fall during high speed. Further he told me that there r many seals in that area..
    1liter / thousent km burning oil is impossible because I haven't seen any kind of smoke...it might be leakages.

    Timing seal cover is not leaked..
    Actually when mechanic give the car high reves then smoke comes out from it...on applying real reves the smoke was visible....but no smoke from the dipstick hole or engin oil lid..no smoke in morning..he told me that ur engin is weak..that really disappointed me..he told me to change ur mobel oil as I was using shell yellow 10 40 synthetic..before this I used 20 50 total..the problem of oil reduction was still there that's y I shifted to semi synthetic 10 40 shell yellow..but he told me to continue with 20 50..may be the smoke on real high reves vanished by thick oil..otherwise I think the engine even in this condition can give me 2 years duty..just I hav to keep an eye at the dipstick level and regularly top ups..as I have seen somewhere that engine can also perform well on 65% engin oil..but top ups up to the optimum level is better..
    Still I am confused..that f a car is loosing 1000ml mobel oil / 1000km..there should be heavy smoke all the time...a clear visible well clouded smoke....broken-hearted situation for me..lol car love level is also reduced now...lol hoping for the best..thanks to all of u..whenever the mechanics around the city gives up then u scientifically educated people really helped and guided people alot...appreciate that.tackcare..
