OIL USAGE

2003 Honda Odyssey • 6 cylinder • 215,000 miles

I have a Honda Odyssey with 215000 miles. I have used Amsoil synthetic oil from day one. My van is using about one quart of oil every 5000 miles. The van doesn't smoke when driven. Where is the oil going?

With 215,000 mile's on it and your using 1 quart in 5,000 mile's I would say that is excellent. Your engine is burning it perfectly normal as a engine wear's it use's oil some more then others. If you don't have any leak's then it's burning it. With that little bit of oil consumption you have no reason to be concern.I would be happy if it was my car and only using that little bit of oil in 5,000 mile with over 200,000 mile's.
