problem #1

Apr 012018

ProMaster City 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


I spoke with the dealer, but they don't believe that is happening. They want to do a test during 1000 miles with everything sealed but I don't want to do that because the average oil consumption is in between 360 and 700 miles and kills the engine and they will decide what to do. My vehicle still under warranty of 60000 miles. I expect something different from them, but they don't know nothing about this problem. even they ignore how work a multi-air system engine. This kind of excessive oil consumption is without leaks, no fumes, no odors and this is a vehicle for heavy loads but never has been used under that way always like a car with light loads inside of an airport with planes parts.

I did some research in internet, all this engines with multi-air system more or less are affected with this issue.and the bloggers said is because some internal gaskets are leaking with the air system atomizing the oil with the air and the fuel, then is created a mixture like a lawnmower engine. the difference with the lawnmower use a 50 : 1 mix. my car is able to consume 1 gallon after 2000 miles. The last year I did a round trip to Wisconsin, the final miles were around 5800 without noticeable oil consumption, the stick level was in the middle all time, after the trip start again with problem.
