I noticed some oil consumption too with my 16MY Turbo. I asked my service guy and he said it should be about 1L/5,000km. I think that the manual also stated to expect some oil consumption.
Could the oil consumption for all these turbos actually be coming through the turbos rather than the rings? With a lot of on/off throttle, the pressure spikes and dips could help suck oil through the turbo bearings. (Not sure what kind of seals are used, but the old labyrinth seals were terrible for oil leak under vacuum conditions.)
With high oil consumption like this, I'd also expect to see visible exhaust smoke.
Excellent point! That fiberboard could be masking slow oil leaks for many Macans.Without removing the fiberboard, it's just a guess. Could be a loose drain plug, bad oil pan gasket, etc. etc. (BTW, that fiberboard is probably soaked with oil!)
It's a new car. No need for you to deal with it or worry. Bring it to the dealer. They'll diagnose it properly and take care of you.Lippy,
Oil consumption is high only in the city, where for about 10 km it takes about 45 minutes, I doubt there are hidden losses.
Perhaps, oil consumption should be measured in hours, not in kilometers
Same for me except I complained about it & the service advisor said they do it deliberately halfway between completely full and 1 quart low because they want to make sure that they don't overfill it which is more dangerous vs. under filling.Not for nothing but on my first oil change the tech didn't fill up the oil to the top of the fill line. I went back so they added the total correct amount.
Porsche (and BMW too) have always had high "acceptable" oil consumption levels per the factory. I know on the 993's the acceptable consumption was 1L per 1,000km's (apx 1qt per 650 miles). Fortunately neither of my 993's drank oil like that!I'd say a quart every 1000 miles is high on a modern car. You do want *some* oil to get past the rings and lubricate the cylinder walls - maybe a quart every 3000-5000 miles - but this seems high.
The first thing you should do is make sure there aren't any leaks. If you can confirm that, you may want to ask them to do a leak-down test and internal borescope inspection to see if it's the top end or the bottom end. They should be able to figure that out. If it's the top end, then it wouldn't be that difficult to fix. But if it's the bottom end, the practical problem for you is that it's probably better to live with the consumption rather than have them disassemble the whole engine.
