Nissan X Trail NT 30 consuming lots of oil.

Customer Question

My car, Nissan xtrail manual NT30 has been consuming lots of oil in the last one month. I changed the oil last Saturday. However, after travelling for approximately 350 kms, there was no oil. There is no leakage. The car is a 2005 model and the exhaust is black. I am looking for a solution.

oil consumption is usually caused by 1 of 3 things.

1. the oil rings are worn and your burning oil.

2. head gasket leak causing oil consumption or oil leak into coolant

3. valve cover issue causing PCV issues, which causes oil consumption.
