Brian Some is normal, but mazda will give you a rediculous number like more than a qt per 1000 is still ok. Seems likely to me but I'm no expert. Just a side note, they did just redo all the seals in the turbo last time in roughly 4k miles ago now. I'm not thrilled, but we agreed to move forward with the oil consumption test as laid out by them. It seems that our direct injected turbo charged engines have more in common with a turbo diesel then you'd think.
As for leaking lol, I explained to them there's no way 2qts could disappear via an unnoticeable leak; no spots on the garage floor, no spots on the surrounding engine components. The primary issue is dilution of viscosity modifiers due to fuel contamination. Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of the tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not Auto Repair Guys. And yeah, it was a pumpkin. I can say the chances of it being the turbo blowing oil by is high. All and all, you're right, an easy, low investment test.
My car has been tuned to my K04 and fuel limits for years and it's heavily abused daily. So we'll see -- play the game this time and really get mad if they try and pull funny business if it fails their test. We upload 3-5 videos a week! And for the record, never did the oil get below the low mark on the dipstick -- any quantities listed here are cumulative adds over the course of the oil change interval. Got to the end of the row and stopped. Turbo engines usually run very hot and, afaik, the Turbo which also runs really, really hot is also cooled by it.
Just didn't know if it was a known thing with this engine. They've actually been pretty friendly over the past few times -- never outrageous or rude. As long as you change your oil regularly you should be fine, just stick to synthetics. Synthetics like Mobil1 actually perform pretty poorly compared to Rotella T6, Amsoil, and Pennzoil Platinum. We hope we were helpful! Came back after 20 minutes of idling. So, you are more likely to see deterioration of the oil in that engine. The first number is its relative weight at cold so in theory, the oil flows better while cold.
Just had the turbo seals and timing chain done last time in the shop 3500 miles ago Thanks in advance! Most Mazdas have the oil type printed on the oil cap - it will likely be 5W-20, 5W-30, 5W-40, 10W-30 or 10W-40. So I'll go through the motions on this just to keep moving forward. Thats what did ours in. These bearings have seals which can leak oil. I have a feeling the turbo is shot. They explained that the max consumption threshold for action is 1qt per 1500 miles. I'm partially guilty of not making a big scene as well which I may have to.
I assume rings and valves. I am sure if under 36K miles, they would have voided the engine for you driving it 2 quarts low. There are a couple other dealers around, but this one is by far the most convenient. Thank you for watching us! I'm guessing I should push them hard to perform a compression. Why did you make the comment about not deviating and putting in 0W-30 vs 5W-30. Thanks for the response Mchart. I asked them over the phone why they did not perform a compression this time as they found no leaks.
Wasn't a problem till recently, either, which alerts me to some 'event' happening. It is easy procedure but sometimes the oil filter gets really stuck so it will be better if you use the right socket tool. For most Mazdas, you can wrap an old belt around the oil filter and unscrew it by hand. Everything is purchased by us! Now the 5W-40 selection can get a bit controversial. Everything is purchased by us! So I will play the game and do that even though I measured this amount already.
We demonstrated on a 2009 with the 2. Hung up, and we left. Mazda engineers chose 5W for a reason. How many miles do you have? Information given in this video does not guarantee the desired outcome. No oil spots in the garage so we're most likely burning it. They recently replaced the timing chain under the pre-owned warranty. Last 3k I had to add 2+ quarts to get it back up to full, so we're right there.
