      I did change the PCV valve. But, it is of no help.

      I'm thinking of using Liqui Moly Oil Saver.
      Did anyone use this? Very high rating by users in Amazon.

      if the coolant color in coolant tank changed from red to with some other dark color then its worth to change Oil Seperator. Apart from this i dont see any reason, unless the engine age factor.
      Recently i have put LM Ceratec with engine oil, i didn't found any sky difference

      The current odo is 1.57L in my Linea. PCV/oil separator was changed at 1.54L, as per earlier advice.

      I have started facing the engine oil consumption from 1.1L, as detailed in an earlier post. Quoted below for reference.
      Consumption is increasing slowly. From last oil change (15W40), it has run about 3500 km and I had to add 1.2L of engine oil.

      I'm facing engine oil drop in Linea MJD. Some signs are similar, with yours and need help.

      I started facing this at about 1.1L kms, may be. After oil was changed at 1.0L at FASS, the oil level was just at the bottom of the min level in 10,000 km. I used to change at 15K intervals at FASS. Topped up and since then saw the oil levels dropping continue to increase.
      There is no smoke, no issue in performance or mileage.
      At about 1.25L, switched to mineral oil (15W40) and used to change at 5000 km intervals, topping up would start after 2-3,000 kms and by 5000 kms it would have taken 1L or 1.5L of top-up.
      At 1.47L, oil and coolant got mixed up and got this fixed at FASS. They have put Selenia (5W40) again, which drops faster than 15W40 oil.
      While discussing with a local mechanic, who serves all cars, he mentioned that oil separator may be the issue. He seems to have fixed similar issues in a number of swift diesels.
      I'm thinking of a change of oil separator, pcv valve. Will it be of any good?
      I'm thinking that I could gamble with Liqui Moly Oil saver, costing 2400 approx in Amazon, than opening the heads and cure the rings, for the time being (around Rs. 25000/- or more). I was trying to get any user feedback from India. Amazon.com user feedback is very positive on reducing oil consumption.

      Why not give a shot with 10W 40 and observe the consumption rate. Which brand of oil you are using now ? Repeat the same with 5w40(dont use selenia) and observe the consumption levels.

      Using Shell 15w40 now, changed every 5000 kms at the Shell Petrol Pump, along with filter.
      Using 10w40 is fine? Will try it in next change.

      Thank you.

      What about 20w50? I find that it is even thicker than 15w40.

      May be we should see more into the formula being used in oil, as 5W40 being fully synthetic definitely the oil consumption will be very less compared to 10W or 20W.
      5W, 10W, 20W the number mostly goes with the cold startup. 5W always good in cold start ups, and its very rare to find 10W or 20W as fully synthetic.Hence i have kept oil change interval of 7K Kms with 10W40(semisynthetic).
