Hi,

My vehicle is using oil. I will fill it travel 200km and nothing will show on the dipstick. I have just replaced the rocker gasket it was buggered. There is no sign of leakage under the car or on the engine. It runs smooth it's got me buggered.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

So if your vehicle is filled up to the full mark on engine oil and you go 200KM and then check the dip stick and it's bone dry, then the oil is going somewhere. Can you double check the front, back, both sides and underneath the engine again? Please, for leaks. Losing oil this quickly it would leave a noticeable amount of oil where the leak is. Please get back to us with what you find and we can go from there.

Thanks,
Alex

So the dipstick was bone dry. I just put not even a liter in it and now it's reading on the max line.

Hello again,

Okay, so when you are driving can you please look to see if your exhaust is blueish in color? If there are no leaks and your vehicle is using this much oil it must be getting burnt in the engines combustion chambers. I would recommend that you do a compression test on your vehicle. Here is a link below explaining how to do this:

Please get back to us with what you find out.

Thanks,
