03 2.0D excessive oil use and possible causes? - rosco p
Hi,

have had this car for a year and think it's using a lot of oil - last serviced 6 months ago and since then has done about 4k miles but I have topped it up twice with at least a litre of oil each time.
It only does short journeys, but the consumption still seems high - I am aware it is the same unit as the mazda 6 which has had a few issues (!) so wondered if high oil use is a symptom of things to come.....?

thanks,

Rosco

The problem reported on the Mazda6 diesel tends to be related to the DPF and the oil level goes up!

I'm not sure your oil use is excessive. If it was not run in properly when new that could account for it using oil.

hi do you think the car is burning oil? or do you think it's leaking?
If its burning it might be worth checking the turbo to see if thats the cause.
If a leak is suspected it may be worth removing the under cover and cleaning the engine to see if a leak is present anywhere (check your oil filter as they can start to leak if not fitted tight enough).
Hope this helps (ps your car wil not have a dpf so its not related).
