e don disappear, so where the oil follow comot? lol. be serious, your engine dey smoke. maybe you are expecting to see smoke coming out from the exhaust, what is the mileage? i guess it should be over 250000km..... make sure you top the oil often.

I have a friend whose car EOD 2005 behaves like this. He bought the car about 3 months ago, the 1st service, he used GOLF engine Oil, the oil dried off after about 3500km, he changed to TOTAL, at 2000km now as advised(same rating as previous),as at last week the engine oil is half the guage.

I have checked the car personally after drive nd early in the morning, the engine doesn't smoke and no physical leak, the only thing I haven't done is to run a check on the car history to know its previous issues. Please house what could be the cause?

There is a leak somewhere. Your mechanics are lazy.

what is the true mileage of the car...i mean true mileage and not the rolled back mileage that naija and cotonu cars sellers are found of putting..

u just said mobil oil...u didnt specify the brand/viscosity.....mobil has lots of oil. low viscosity oils like mobil1 isnt recommended for high mileage engines .>greater than 150k miles as the engine clearance is too wide/seals are not holding any more..thus the low viscous oil will be getting whipped into the cylinders and burning up...this is a perfectly harmless situation...the only remedy is to top up the oil periodically or use thicker/more viscous oil like 15w 40, 20w 50 etc

WHAT IS THE TRUE mileage 588345km or 58845km?
if its 588345km...then its on the very very high side...its really a miracle that the car is still serving you....u really shudnt use mobil1. u shud use 20w 50 oils that r thicker.......if the mileage is 58845km...then i doubt that mileage....its very very unlikely that an 05 car will have such a low mileage....i would be lead to believe that the mileage was reduced/rolled back by the fraudulent sells you bought the car from.
