Im sorry that is not normal! Where is the oil going :???: Ive never owned a car that used oil like that! Matter of fact none of the vehicles I owned used/burned whatever any oil at all between oil changes(3000).DrivinAJetta said:Thats one quart every 1333 miles - Just outside the realm of what VW considers "normal" oil consumption (1 quart every 1000 miles).
I just had mine in because I had a stuck Montreal rim I wanted rotated and they told me that something they have started seeing with Passats is the camshaft adjuster seals leaking oil. They said that with the cold, and the higher oil pressure building up, this is the weakest seal in the system and ends up leaking before the oil filter valve pops. The seals supposedly have been redesigned because of this.darisgin said:
