Oil burning problem with 1.3 engine (eg Auris) - Does it happen on 1.8 engine too?

Recommended Posts

Hello all -  my name is Ben and I live in Buckinghamshire. For five years I have been very happily driving a 2010 Auris 1.3. It has never let me down and it's enjoyable to drive.  I generally cover approx 40 miles a day to and from work (or at least I was until March this year!) . However my Auris does have an increasingly annoying problem of burning Oil. When starting from cold, I can see the Oil coming out of the exhaust pipe as a black wet deposit. It makes things dirty in the garage. And I have to top up about a litre of Oil every week or two depending on how much I drive. I understand this is a known problem with this engine. Is it also known with Toyota's larger petrol engines, eg the 1.8?  I am about to buy a 2016 Verso 1.8 petrol and its exhaust pipe was a bit sooty, so I am wondering?  Owners' feedback would be very welcome

Toyota's 1.8 vvti engine could develop the Oil usage problem until mid 2005, then was reportedly cured.  The newer 1.8 valvematic engine has no such problems.
