Back Again...Oil Burn syndrome on a 2009 Toyota Matrix 2.4L - 5 speed- 140K
Thanks for previous replies to my posts on my OIL BURNING Matrix. Have never seen smoke or oil on the ground. I now assume it is my engine ( discussions support it is my notorious 2.4L engine ) Outside of replacing or rebuilding the engine, will changing my oil brand or adding specific additives ...slow down the oil burn on this engine? It has been a great car since I became the second owner - love it! - but wondering if I should change BRANDS of engine oil or include additives to slow down the burn process....right now I have to change every 2k in to a 3k synthetic-blend oil change interval. As always ... thanks for your suggestions..and reading this post! Stay Well !
Try some bars oil seal leak. I have seen it cut down oil use on cars burning oil.
Going full synthetic may help a speck. You can go up to 5W-30 if your car calls for 0W-20.
Stick to name brand additives, if any.
