    Hello all,

    I have a 2013 Hyundai Sonata and I'm losing oil... It's not leaking and I can't see any smoke from the exhaust. I am having to add at least a quart every couple of week. I figured if I was going through that much oil I would see smoke. The car has about 167,000 miles. I don't know what the problem could be. I had someone tell me it could be the piston rings but I really don't know. The vehicle runs fine and still gets good gas mileage. Any Ideas?

    If you can .. put some cardboard underneath the car
    Should be big enough to cover space below the engine
    If it leaks then over night will show it

    If it is burning the oil then either bad piston rings
    Or bad valve seals
    Hard to tell from this side of the forum
