Using Oil


since the 80K service I have noticed that my 2007 vehicle is using oil - about 2 litres in 5K. I have read all the posts and can add that the engine -presumably the turbo - make a growl or a chatter under low acceleration when I back off the pedal and I guess this is the same sound others have mentioned. has anyone else had oil consumption. Thanks in advance for help.

Re:


I'm surprised nobody has answered you yet given your post was back in April.

I'd like to help but need a little more info...

1. Has the excessive oil consumption only started since the 80k service?
2. Have you checked the underside for oil leaks?
3. How much oil are you getting on your air filter (see the top sticky post in the Diesel forum)?
4. Is your car one of those fitted with a Provent?

Excessive oil consumption can be one of a number of things but if you can provide more information that would help in diagnosis.

Re: Re: Using Oil


Well I have good news but apologize I have not logged in for a while. The oil use has stopped and I conclude that it was caused by the car sitting idle for 4 months in storage while we were on holiday waiting for a new house to be available.
The consumption was noted after the service. I had checked for leaks, and wondered if the oil used at the last service was "different" but the dealer said :no:". There were what I would consider small marks on the air filter. I don't know about the Provent.
I am happy it has stopped but it does make me wonder what happened to the used oil. As we regularly do freeway driving I am guessing if it was in the DPF it would be burned off by now. As an interesting point I have since purchased a 2003 XC70 Volvo as a second vehicle and it getting roughly the same economy as the Xtrail and is a far superior car on the road - though of course much more expensive new.
