Why is my Car Burning Oil

Report as

There are many possible reasons as to why your car might be burning oil, but the first one that comes to mind is that your piston rings are bad. They get loose in the cylinder over time and let the oil leak by into the combustion chamber and it burns it off along with the gasoline. If it smells like it's burning oil, but you're not actually losing any noticeable amount, then you may have a small leak that is getting onto the exhaust when the motor is running.
