    Default suzuki potohar

    aoa dear friends...

    I have suzuki potohar 2001 CNG,petrol ...now a days my jeep engine is consuming oil almost 1 L after 1000 km's in long journey...I am using Havoline formula 20w-50.
    also I would like to mention that its starting is fine ...it gives no smoke either blue or black...
    does it mean engine is going weak...or some head gas kit or other seals may be leak...plz suggest....

    ^^nope. He mains that the head of the engine, which includes piston rings, has to be rebuilt. My Cultus has the same issue; mechanic gave an estimate of Rs 20k-25k.

    even a bad pcv can't cause an engine to burn that much oil, the engine definitely needs an overhaul
