Does it burn oil? Yes. Is there a recall? No!
So I thought I'd tell everyone what I'm doing. It's a 2008 scion tc 2.4 liter.
76000 miles . It uses 1 Quart every 2000 miles. Amsoil 5w20 .
I put about 2 ounces of MMO into each spark plug hole and turned the engine a little. I let it soak over night.
I had to crank the engine several times to get most of the oil out of the cylinders. I didn't want to overheat the starter or kill the battery. I put about a pint into the crankcase and the rest into the gas tank. Lots of smoke in the morning. I'll update the oil burning when I find out if this helped at all.
This should not be normal. My 1zzfe was right at the full mark when I changed the oil on my 2005 corolla at 8000 mile oci. It has 222,223 miles on it.
