    Default mira manual 2008 engine oil burns, knocking

    Hello everyone. Please guide me as i am having trouble in diagnosing the real problem of car as different mechanics are misguiding.
    I have mira manual 2008 model which was running perfectly with only 1 issue of oil level which is reduced 1 liter after 2000 km. But i filed it once and change it after 3000 km.
    Now for the past couple of weeks car pick gone low on height. Generates heat on small travelling, knocking with high acceleration, generates lots of smoke when accelerating, now engine oil of 1 liter burned in 4 days.
    Water level is full.
    What will be the reason?best Mechanic in rwp/isb?
    Thank you

    Your engine is burning oil, you are already using a heavy oil. I am afraid the only option is either an engine rebuild or a replacement engine

    Most likely you will have to swap the engine as rebuilding the engine is not very successful by the local ustaads

    my mira was decreasing oil eversince i bought it from karachi as a first buyer but i waited for a year and changed rings last year from Multan. the ring job was successful however, i noticed an engine leak. the leak started increasing in volume and was primarily from the head area probably from gasket. got the head gasket replaced from Yazdani motors karachi but the leak persisted although it decreased in volume. Couple of months back on moving to Rwp got some silicone on the same old gasket from sultan da khu and voila today the engine is leak free. But yes the locals khwar you a lot.

    what is your location?
    i personally believe that rebuilding the engine / ring job is an easy job for a good mechanic in pakistan but where to find a reliable mechanic? if in Rwp / isb go to rizwan bhai in sultan da khu, i believe he is an expert. In karachi i would suggest yazdani motors, they are expensive but can be fairly reliable.....

    if you can get a good engine upto30 k, i believe that would not be a bad option.
