Losing just a bit of oil (light comes on) every 6-8 weeks

Customer Question

losing just a bit of oil (light comes on) every 6-8 weeks (no sign of leaking) being told it could be stuck piston rings or valve seals...is it ok to merely replenish when low or will the engine eventually seize, etc...? Don't want to put $5K into a 2003 C240 with only 60,000

Hi I'm Kevin you can carry on topping up the usage if it is either of the valve seals or piston rings will progressively get worse until the car is smoking heavily but as long as on is filled up the engine should carry on ok
