  1. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    Hello. I have a 2000 corolla with a oil burning issue. I notice it only does it when driving down a hill and the rpms increase. At the bottom of the hill when I give it gas, it blows blue smoke. Other than that, it blows under hard acceleration and a little during start ups. I already know that...

    Hey so my Toyota levin 5afe burns through all its oil through roughly 700kms on 5w 30 synthetic oil but it used to use mineral oil so I'm curious if I put mineral oil back in will the oil last longer or is there a real problem behind this. Thanks :)
  3. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    I've searched common problem threads and have advanced search bout the same topic that's mentioned in the title. There are various reasons why this could be and it's all pretty vague. I'm wondering if any Highlander owners may have experienced this. I noticed that this message in red...

  5. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    So lately my Camry has just been sucking the oil. The oil change isn’t due for another 1,500 miles. It has about 165,xxx miles. Any ideas? I just put oil in it not too long ago now I checked it last night and boy it did not read any oil on the dipstick
  6. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    Realized I've been missing a bolt on the engine cover since I purchased the car a couple years ago. Currently 255k miles. It's burning and leaking oil so just replaced the valve cover gasket. Previously replaced the PCV valve and just did it again as well. Already replaced the thermostat due to...
  7. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hi everyone, I have an 89 manual Camry wagon with 140k km on the clock, I was topping up oil a couple of times between oil changes (every 5000km's) but not with too much oil. A mechanic acquaintance suggested that the spark plug tubes may need resealing and was probably the cause of the lost...
  8. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hi to all, I have 2005 Camry, manual transmission, 270K miles. In really good condition. Couple days ago replaced first time rotors, clutch after 200K miles... But it burns oil, a lot. I didn't "regularly" change oil about last 2 years because I'm adding oil all the time. Sometimes I'll kinda...
  9. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I have a 2004 Camry with 180K miles. It burns about one quart every 400 miles. I changed PCV and used more viscus oil, but see no improvement. I heard of Mystery Oil, would that likely to help? I know it probably needs a ring job, but.....
  10. Corolla 6th Generation (1988-1992)
    Hello, I have a pretty mint All-Trac DX with only 90k miles, great condition inside and out. Unfortunately and unbeknownst to me, it was burning oil when I bought it from the original owner and now needs a new crank set. Trying to decide what to do next: 1. Just replace the crank set -...
  11. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    TLDR car is burning oil mildly but enough to foul plugs in 7-14k miles. using ngk iridiums 3764 i believe.. anyone know what higher heat range plug i can run to help deal with this issue? i understand its not a proper fix but im not willing to drop $1400 to replace valve stem seals /piston...
  12. Tundra 2nd Generation (2007-2013)
    Howdy! My dad has a 2013 Tundra--5.7L 3UR-FE, 120k on the clock. It's using 1qt of oil every 2500 miles, and we feel like that's excessive. He's hoping to make a warranty claim but the dealership says "1 quart every 1000 miles is normal" (!!) I don't know if we'll get anywhere, but I would...
  13. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hello all, I am thinking of buying a 2010 Camry SE V6 with the 3.5L engine with about 166,000 kms on it. Is there anything I should be looking out for? I have previously owned many Camry's and the last one I owned was a 2008 Camry SE with the 2.4L engine. That car developed an oil burning...
  14. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I didn't think this engine really burned oil, but apparently the one in my father-in-laws '98 is. He called me saying the oil light was on, and that he added some oil and it went out but is now back on again. I told him it only comes on if it's like 2 quarts or more low (might not be Toyota's...
  15. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hi everyone, I'm looking at buying a 6th gen Camry for my wife to replace her 4th gen. The one I'm looking at is a 2009 SE 4-cyl/auto with 104k on the clock for $6800. My main concern is oil burning, which I know has been a big problem with almost all newer Toyota engines. Do we know why...
  16. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    So for all you high mileagers, I was wondering what condition your car is in retrospect, engine wise. So far I have 283k miles and counting and it burns like 2.5qrts every 4k oil change. I usually buy 10-30W high mileage oil and top it off with the cheapest oil I can find. Anybody use Lucus...

    2005 Toyota Highlander 4cyl. front wheel drive. 190k miles. Regular 3k mile oil changes since new. MMO treatments and Seafoam treatments here and there. Recently my oil consumption has gotten worse to the point of 1qt every 1500miles. PCV in good shape but just bought factory one with hose for...
