2001 Mercedes-Benz E320 Q&A
2001 Mercedes-Benz E320 Question: Why would I start burning oil for the first time ever in the last 3-4 months?
I had it diagnosed and the repair was to replace the valve covers and gaskets and reseal the baffles. After 2000 miles I had to put 2 quarts of oil in it again the other day (check oil level light came on). I have never had a burning smell, just warning light and then low reading when I check the level. Now they are telling me it's not unusual to have to add a quart or two of oil, especially with highway driving. It had never happened before these last few months. The car has a little over 107,000 miles on it. - jtate72
manf say approx 1/2 qt per 1k miles is ok after 100k miles on car. who is telling you this is normal? - globalhelper
