2002 l200 uses oil...

2002 l200 uses oil but no leaks no burning soot in exhaust. Was told this is normal its got 132k miles runs great

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?

No had no issues to date so no need to change

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your L200 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not gonna do a rebuild but I'd its simple like pcv or adding mmo to crankcase I can try

Hey how are you
How much oil are you using in 30 days
Did you pull the pcm valve and lines are they soaked with oil ?
Did you the plugs are the wet with oil ? Like passing it thru the rings, you can do also compression test
Let me know so I can tell you which way to goPlease let me know

I'll try that but tbh it'll be next weekend before I can get to it. Wouldn't any oil getting by rings cause blue or black smoke in exhaust? I've seen no exhaust issues

if it is excessive amount you will see smoke
Ok sounds goodYou are very welcome :)
