    Default Oil Consumption

    Hello

    I'm putting in about 1 litre of oil every 150 - 200 miles and its costing a fortune.

    Anybody having problems with oil consumption on a 2.2 Petrol?

    i've had a few niggles but nothing as bad as that mate. maybe worth getting it checked out? i believe the 2.2 can be quite thirsty but as i say i havent ever used that much. have you tried putting a bit cardboard under at night in case its a leak?

    There isn't any visable leaks and no oil smells.
    Its just been back to vauxhall and they didn't find anything which could be causing the oil consumption.

    Only had the car a month, and im not impressed and It doesn't seem to perform better than my old-shape 2.0 140 SRi

    Hiya Rossy,

    My 2.2 hasn't used a drop of oil in between my regular checks. As Graeme suggests get a bit of cardboard under it SURELY there must be a leak using that amount of oil. Any blue / black smoke out the 4r5e end ?

    could any of the breathing pipes be blocked with emulsified oil[short journeys], it may then force the oil past the piston rings as there is a lot of crankcase pressure,, probably not the cause, but just an idea anyway...

    As RBK says, surely must be a leak. To burn that much oil would stink & smoke like hell.

    Its been into a Vauxhall dealer today.

    They have found it to be burning oil from cylinder No 4 and require it back next week for the cylinder head to be removed to see if its a cylnder head or bottom end problem.

    This should not be happening to an engine with 34k on.

    Am surprised at that mate.

    Best of luck with it.

    Is it under warranty? Must be if you've not had it long?

    Let us know how you get on
