Does your shitbox burn oil, and how much does it burn.
Who here /bluesmoke/?
>>
>>18453372
It was pretty alright until this one time I forgot to keep an eye on it and then it was like two quarts down.
>rip being able to almost go 90MPH

One tank of gas one half quart became my new life. But it never failed me, my shitbox stallion.

Pretty much the same.
For some reason it doesn't smoke when it's cold and you start it up but it smokes a lot once it's warmed up.

They don't sell oil in pints. I'm sorry if you're trying to endure communism.

Same, though mine is just a 16 year old diesel with 400k kms on it. Doesn`t even blow much soot out the back, so cant roll coal either.

shop fucked up a engine rebuild and went bankrupt when it was in for warranty, burns 1L every few weeks now and my mess to fix

way back when i had a Datsun kingcab pickup with the Z24 engine that burned 1-2L a week, i usually ran almost all ATF in the engine because it was cheaper than motor oil. ironically went to the junkyard when the frame busted in half but still ran fine

Both of my cars burned oil even when they were brand new
My daily also has a couple of leaks, so it goes through at least half a quart per 1000 miles
My weekend car on the other hand works exactly as intended with no leaks, but it burns about 1 quart per 1000 miles
>>
>>18453372
Not enough to blow blue smoke but my last OCI was about 5.5k and I had to top off 3 quarts in that time.

>>18453455
They do though, you can get it at Walmart even.

They got rid of the hyphen in the middle now, it's officially Walmart.
http://fortune.com/2017/12/06/walmart-stores-name/
Also they carry all the name brands of full synthetic like mobil1, Castrol, delo, and rotella, as well as weirder weights such as 0w40 Euro blend in mobil1 and Castrol, and a good selection of decent quality products like rain-x, Michelin, and Bosch wipers, meguiars and mother's car care products, and mobil1 oil filters. They do have some garbage, yes, but if you give a shit about your car they also have some good products as well, and for less money than at regular auto parts stores most of the time.

I'm the dude from /ccg/ with the built supercharged 350 in the 79 camaro. Bout a quart every 1000 miles or so and I run 20w50 oil in it. Loose tolerances I'm design by Chevy Will mean there's always blowby apparently

07' Subaru, half a quart every thousand unless I really beat on it which makes it burn a bit worse. No visible oil smoke from the exhaust though.
>>
>>18453372
Only on startup, it will make a huge cloud of blue smoke when it's been sitting for a few days. Burns about a quart every oil change, so I'm not worried

dont forget how they decided to use the most retarded dipstick in the world, just to add insult to having to check the oil.

I've been trying to check every 500 miles, but if the 2.5L isnt telling enough, i'm not always good at checking.

i've never seen engine oil in pints unless its for toys with engines, like 2-smoke oil or 4-stroke oil.

Maybe power steering oil, brake fluid, friction modifiers and stuff like that?

>>18453372
Mine can burn 3 quarts of Penn ultra platnum in a month.

Because your vehicles' previous owner never changed the oil. And you're proud enough to point that. Do you think that makes you a normie?

It burns about 1 quart every thousand miles, as the.manufacturer intended, as well as 8 oz of 2 stroke for every tank.

Old British car
Doesn't smoke or burn oil in appreciable quantity
Just drips it everywhere
Cork valve cover gasket with steel sheet cover, basically impossible to seal properly
Leaking timing cover seal
The leaks aren't that big a deal and they prevent corrosion. Not a big deal just have to add more oil every thousand miles or so
>>
Shitbox, I don't know. Engine is guaranteed to not rust though.

Shitbike, yes. 1L per 10k km riding normally. 1L per 1000km while gunning it.

My Prowler with a supercharged Chrysler EGG burns an assload of oil. At last check I burned 3qts in 998 miles. I think it needs new rings. The weirdest thing is that, despite no cat and no muffler, there is no blue smoke, no puddles, and no oil smell. I’m just gonna send it until it blows up and then LS/manual swap the thing.
>>
>>18458616
When I burnt my rings or whatever it was that happened to cause my shitbox to start burning a bunch of oil, I didn't have any noticeable smoke or scent from it either. But you're burning oil probably 2-3x faster than I was.
>>
>>18458657
Well a ton ends up in my catch can too. That engine is fucked. Tons of blow by even at low load/boost. It’s an engine that consumes oil pretty quick anyway.

My Turbocoupe used to send out a little smoke on startup, I think it was the turbo seals, but they must have healed because it doesn't do it anymore. At the time, if I started it and I didn't get any smoke I knew it was time to add a quart. I was leaving work one day and started it and saw the little blue cloud when another co-worker called to me and said my car was smoking. I told her I knew and it meant I still had oil, and to please let me know if she didn't see smoke next time. I think I confused her.

>>18458616
How hard is replacing the same engine in a car anyhow? Not even swapping
>>
>>18461718
Honestly, not that difficult. For me I yanked the trans and engine out at the same time, and bolted my old transmission up to the "new" engine. I started at 9am and ended at 5pm, but that was with copious amounts of fucking around and trying to find tools.
>>
>>18461894
Do you think someone who has changed alternator, starters, power steering pumps, transition fluid gaskets and smaller things like that can figure it out with a bit of reaearch?
>>
>>18461708
Well it doesn't help. The oil is supposed to live in all the little cracks and crevasses to keep them sealed up and not wearing apart. If they get worn and unsealed then oil gets through and gets burned up.

>>18463180
It depends on the choice of vehicle but I pretty much decided
>welp I guess it's time for me to take the engine out
>fuck these instructions is too complicated
>ok I'll just start taking things off until I can get the engine out
and everything went better than expected
>>
>>18463180
Oh and I should note that I had a second beaterbox on the road at the time. It's a huge relief when you're not worrying the whole time how you're going to get to work on monday or if you just took 4 hours worth of shit out only to discover you need THAT ONE TOOL or you broke some stupid thing and now you can't even drive to the parts store and it's going to cost you like $50 for three day shipping unless you want to leave your car in a heaping pile all damn week.

I think they came out of the factory, new, burning oil.

Thanks anon, I saw a BMW 540i that needed a new motor for sale, but I might just buy a BMW that runs first, and fix the problem when it comes

>>18463433
Not much really beyond having a friend or two with an 80s BMW who figured it was no big deal to have to wrench on it every so often. Seemed like bretty gud driver's cars from an era before they were as much of a faggoty status symbol in the US as they are these days.

Drove D15B2 that used about 1l/500km, it was horrible. Had to clean plugs from sooth few times a year.

It also clogged cat so stupid me just hammered it out. Sure it restore almost all the power lost over years but fuuuck the smell was unbearable.

Good times tho, I miss it so much :-(

My 27 year old Corolla has been in my family for the whole time and it has always consumed oil. I check it at every ~300 km and I usually have to add at least 1/5th of a 4 liter bottle.
I get told that it's typical for that era's Toyotas to lose oil like that.
>>
>>18453372
Dropped a used motor into the Columbia and it's been sipping about a gallon of oil every 5,000 miles.

The last day the old motor ran it went through 15 gallons in 250 miles.

i have a 25yr old D16Z6, after buying it i quickly realised it had been beaten on everyday of its life because of it's sweet VVTAAAXX. only produces visible smoke if I engine brake downhill and mash the gas. replaced the valve stem seals, still burns just a lot less. I can always smell it. pretty sure my rings are almost gone. goes through all of its oil in a month, before the valve stem seal job it would burn all of its oil in 2 weeks.

it seems all d series were punished for being slow.
