    Default Engine Oil Reduce.Corolla 2 Japanese 97 Model

    Dear Friends,

    Recently, I have bought a Corolla 2 Meter mileage is 94000 KM. Previously probably having thick oil e.g Havoline 20~50.
    I have shifted it to Caltex Formula 10~40. After 3500 KM it reduced the oil approx 1/2 letter.

    But apparently seems engine have no issue e.g no back smoke etc etc and also there is no leakage.

    Please suggest me expert opinion. Should i move back to 20~50 and stick with same by changing oil on some low mileage initially e.g 2000 KM.

    Or can i also use some addictive as well to resolve this issue.

    Thanks in advance for your valuable time and response.

    Try Liqui Moly, 15w40 for your next oil change & see if it reduces oil. Also don't forget to clean your air filter regularly as a clogged air filter also causes cars to burn oil.

    .5L in 3500KM is normal reduction. Toyota in manual says 1L oil consumption per 2000KM is normal so dont expect this car not to consume even a drop.

    Just drive and keep a check on the engine oil level. BTW Caltex formula is 10-30 or 10-40? hmm Use atleast 10-40.
    Liqui Moly got some nice oil you can try there oil.
    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go.

    Thanks for response. Also please note my car is automatic.
    One more factor what I have observed on alternate weeks I am going to Sialkot. Usually a huge difference in gas pressure what I got in Isb and then in Sialkot region.
    If I can get tuned car from Isb then my car is compatible with Isb region gas and shows missing and pick problem with other region gas vice versa. May it will also cause of oil reduce.

    Last and important which Liqui moli oil will be suitable for my car thick or thin I mean 10-30 or 20-50.

    And from where I can get original one.

    do not use any addictive,
    check ur oil level after every 800 to 1000km. if it is reducing the same level, its ok
    also change oil after every 2000km
