Courious what TSB they are talking about. The only thing I found is a service bulliten that says it normal for the hemi to burn a lot of oil. They claim 1 qt per 750 miles is normal. I say BS. It seems that they don't want to address this oil issue.

Re: Major smoke out of exhaust

christ my xj with 310,000 miles dosent burn a quart in 3,000 miles if i owned a vehicle that burned a quart in 750 or a thousand id dump it. Anyone know if any of the other auto manu. have these crazy tolerances. Maybe someone should call the EPA and see if there are standards that have to be met for new vehicles

well what do ya know...... found by googleing new vehicle oil consumption standards......

Oil Consumption Standards
Answer ID 20833 | Published 09/24/2010 08:29 PM | Updated 06/13/2011 04:57 PM
What is considered normal oil usage (consumption)?
Industry Standards for Normal Engine Oil Consumption:

1) Mileage below 50,000
*Normal oil consumption is one quart for each 1,000 miles driven

2) Mileage above 50,000
*Normal oil consumption is one quart for each 750 miles driven

Oil consumption can vary, in each vehicle, due to many different circumstances. Some of the following are examples under which oil consumption may increase on a vehicle:

Engine oil consumption may increase with age and mileage due to normal engine wear.
Consumption may be increased during engine break in (up to about 7500 miles)
Consumption can increase during severe service use (heavy loading, towing, short trips, taxi, off road or law enforcement use)
Consumption is sometimes increased during sustained high speed driving
Oil use may increase if there is a failure to comply with recommended oil type and viscosity ratings as outlined in the owners manual you received with your vehicle.
In order for excessive oil consumption to be determined, a supervised oil consumption test must be performed by the dealership, and an evaluation made.






guess they just go with what the EPA sets its standards at not what is typical (hopefully)

They are notoriously crappy. However, I believe that proverbial dead horse has been beaten. Some believe that a catch can will help, some believe it won't.

Re: Major smoke out of exhaust

rpoverland:

Did replacing the PCV valve eliminate your blue smoke issue? Just curious as I have this problem too (1700 miles on odometer) but haven't reported it yet to the dealer. Need advice.

So Far so good. I havent seen anything wrong after they replaced the pCV valve. I have to say that I have been very observative all the time.

I'll keep an eye and let you guys know If anything happens.

2000 miles on my V8 and no oil burn, i agree it's BS.

Check your hose from the PVC where it goes into the intake manifold. When I checked mine the inside of the hose was coated with oil. I installed a catch can and it gets about 1 1/2 cups of oil between oil changes (5000 mi.). Yet it still smokes when starting on an incline.
