|We had the motor replaced on our 06 M/T Z at approximately 5500 miles. I've been monitoring the new engine and it appears to be burning oil too although not as bad as the original engine. We even took it back to the dealer once before my wife took a trip out of town. We just wanted them to do an "official" oil check before the car took a trip. Turns out it was 1.3 quarts low already. It's getting low again. We'll be going back to the dealership soon.|
About 1,000 miles when the dealership added 1.3 quarts. We had them document it.
I was hoping maybe that's normal for a new engine being broken in. But since then it seems it's burned a noticeable amount. It'll be going back to the dealership very soon. I'm curious what they'll have to say this time.
Still not as bad as the original engine. My wife had the oil topped off at a Nissan dealership in Little Rock Arkansas while she was on a business trip and it was pretty low by the time she got back to Fort Worth. That was when the dealer agreed to replace the engine. What's strange is that we could never detect any smoke from the exhaust even though it seemed to be consuming oil like crazy.
|Check your intake/PCV valve. It could have been a PCV issue. Did the car have hesitation/detonation issues too?|
No noticeable hesitation/detonation.
Is a faulty PCV valve a common issue on Zs?
