Re: 2003 FX35 High Oil Consumption... New Member Also!
i just checked in with my mechanic, last time i lost 1.5 quarts. NO leaks at all. no burning oil ive never smelt anything remotely close. and lastly, no cel.
that was around 3500k. ive heard to use 5w40 valvoline!
however you should give this a try, use quakerstate full synthetic with HEAT ADDICTIVES thats what im using now i just got an oil change will report back in a few thousand clicks but since most synthetics are all same try the ones with additional heat protectant, in the long run it may pay off. maybe instead of 3 quarts u burn it may be 2 quarts. also oil changes are 6.5 litres WITH THE FILTER, thats forsure because i let my oil drain on a hoist for 30 minutes before filling. and we checked after firing the engine. that last half quart keep with you in the car and after 1500 miles just top it off and you should be good until next oil change. however if you dont need to top it off leave the half quart so next time you only need to by 6 quarts
btw 04 fx45 74,000 miles just swapped both bearings driver and passenger but hearing a slight slight slight whistling noise maybe rears? cant hear with volume at 3, anywhow no more vibrations just changed both struts all 4 new brake pads passenger rear right caliper was seized and need oil change, i used quakerstate oil with purolator filter well see how that goes also changed cabin air filter . my ride is clean and well taken care of
