    Default Daihatsu Terios using oil - no smoke

    SWAMBO's 2006 Terios (1.5L petrol Auto) is using in the order of 1.5L of oil over a 3 week period (1500 km's) with no significant oil leaks visible and not smoking excessively. It doesn't seem to run hot or exhibit any other symptoms.

    Any idea's? Hoping this wont be an expensive exercise!

    With the amount of info you supplied only someone with a crystal ball will be able to help you

    How many kilo's has the car done?
    What oil do yo use?
    How does your wife drive? If she drives like a granny, no pun intended, the engine sleeves may be glazing.
    Does she only drive short distances?
