L700 oil useage


#1

Hi all
Well I have had my 1999 Handi for a couple of months and am very pleased with the vehicle. I did an oil change at 49800k. Now coming up to 53000k. I always check the dipstick every third time I drive the little beastie . I topped it up at 52600 and it took about 300ml. I am just running this by the “gurus” and ask is this an ok amount
Cheers
Dave

300ml could be okay if driven hard. Any oil in the inlet manifold or intake?


#3

My Cuore has done 209,000km and I did the last 3000km oil change around 208,000. When I let it drain for a few hours onto a bucket, there was only 300ml left in the bucket :scream::scream:

Is there any oil inside the air cleaner or in the throttle body?


#5

It does have a small amount of blowby hence the vacuum hose to the intake, but no oil in the air cleaner as the vacuum hose is connected after the filter.
