2007 Toyota Camry burning oil
Your video on burning oil really hit home for me. I currently drive an 07 Toyota Camry that I love, but with 185k miles, it's burning oil from it's 4cylinder vvti engine. Normally I go through about 6 extra quarts between oil changes that I do religiously every 3000 miles.
This issue with my make and model is also something that Toyota is aware of but has yet to issue a full recall on (and they probably won't). I've also taken my car into a local Toyota dealership for an oil consumption test, only for them to tell me that it was "normal" for my vehicle to burn that much oil in the time that the test was conducted.
Since then I've been keeping an eye on the dipstick and adding oil to the engine whenever necessary.
So long story short my question is that if I keep doing this (adding oil), can I continue to run the car normally for many more years/miles, OR am I just operating on "borrowed time" and the engine will eventually fail? And besides pulling the head and replacing the faulty piston rings that are clogged, is there any other method/technique you'd recommend to either reduce the engine from burning oil or stop it all together?
Thank you so much- Kyle
