My 2006 Ford Fusion (4 cylinder, manual transmission) is using a lot of oil.

1 qt every 300 miles. No smoke, no oil spots under the car on the garage floor.

Where could the oil be going?

  • how many times have you added a qt of oil since your last oil change? – HandyHowie Feb 27 '16 at 19:01
  • 1. No sign of oil in the antifreeze. – lee Feb 28 '16 at 19:13
  • We've added 5 quarts since the last oil change, 1500 miles ago. – lee Feb 28 '16 at 19:14
  • Is the engine bay oily? maybe its an oil seal or a gasket – method Mar 30 '16 at 22:23

If you don't have oil in your coolant, the only option for the oil to go would be is through the exhaust and out, make sure the pcv valve is not bad not stuck closed not shorted out, the oil in the exhaust might not be noticeable.
