Please read entirely, its a little long. (small hx of vehicle)
Here’s my situation:
Engine seems to be using to much oil. No noticeable leaks on garage floor.
2009 Honda Odyssey V6. ever since I bought the Car brand new, I have never had a full dip stick when the car is brought in for service/oil change. The Oil dip stick level is always down to the bottom line. I didn’t think anything of it til March 2016 when I noticed my warranty was coming up to expire
So I started to record my Van’s oil mileage hx from 2011 to current. I noticed I was taking the Van in more often than needed and I was not getting full mileage between oil changes.
And now I’m seeing a huge reduction in mileage.
July 2016 I requested an oil consumption test which they say it cleared since it does not use a quart of oil within 1k miles. Even though at the time I mentioned to them that it does not start to consume until mileage reaches 1200miles.
So I continue to drive and document mileage.
Only 3500 miles went by and now my dip stick is back to the bottom level, instead of taking it in, i add oil. ( i added 3/4 quart ) 10/15/2016, and now today 12/02/2016 i check oil dip stick and again oil line is at the bottom level, and I’ve only driven 1144miles since 10/15/2016.
Now I have to add more oil again. (Oil meter says 40%, so by car reading I’m 40% from having to have my oil changed cause the oil is dirty by their standards)
But my Van oil line is at the bottom level of the dip stick.
current mileage 105099
Why is this happening?
I’ve never had a Van / Car consume so much oil.
