There are a few potential causes and procedures you can take to figure out why your Equinox is burning oil yet there are no visible leaks. Here are some additional options to consider:
1) The PCV System is designed to remove gases from the engine crankcase. A malfunctioning system or clogged PCV valve can cause excessive oil consumption. Check for any signs of damage or blockage. Replace any faulty components as needed.
2) Valve Seals - Worn or damaged valve seals can allow oil to seep into the combustion chamber, leading to oil consumption. You may notice blue smoke coming out of the exhaust. A compression test can help determine if the valve seals are the issue.
3) Piston Rings - Faulty piston rings can allow oil to pass into the combustion chamber, resulting in oil consumption.
4) Engine Breather System allows pressure to escape from the engine crankcase. If the breather system is clogged or not functioning correctly, it can cause oil consumption. Check the breather hoses and components for any obstructions or damage.
It's worth noting that some oil consumption can be considered normal. However, if you're experiencing excessive oil consumption that goes beyond the manufacturer's specifications, it's important to address the issue to prevent engine damage. Regularly monitoring your oil levels and consulting with a qualified mechanic will help ensure the proper functioning of your vehicle.
