Re: Car loosing oil without a leak

Hi Crvett69,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

I got the car checked by a mechanic and he checked the engine compression and compression is OK. He topped the oil level and asked me to drive for some time to measure the oil reduction rate.

When searched on the internet, one other reason that is mentioned which causes the engine to burn oil and produce a white smoke in the morning is oil leakage from valve seals. Is there a way to identify whether the problem is in PCV or is with the oil seals?

One more thing, the mechanic told that he noticed some oil in one of the spark plugs.

Thanks
