I have a '92 325i that has about 150k miles that needs 1 quart every 1500 miles. Should I be concerned? I don't notice any leaking at spots where I usually park nor do I notice any smoke from the exhaust. Should I be concerned? What should I do? Would using some of the oils that are formulated for engines prevent the loss, are ther any adverse affects?
I have listened to "Click & Clack" on PBR answer questions regarding this problem and they stated that when around 3k miles it's time for an oil change anyway so not to worry. I'm assuming my problem is burning oil as I don't see stains where I park. Does this affect performance and premature fouling of spark plugs? Also would using a different oil slow down or prevent the loss?
