1.4 Tsi Golf 7 - Extremely high oil consumption

Postby Freelancer » Fri Nov 17, 2017 11:33 am

HI,

Anyone know of any issues with the 1.4 Tsi with regard to high oil usage from around 75000km? Can of oil per refuel and more. No leak detected, no smoking. can't seem to find the fault.

Thanks

look at the crankcase breather system, turbo seals/bearings
MK2's dont die, they just get lower & faster!!

When you say a can (500ml) of oil per refuel this is 700-850km?

Sounds rather high.
Any smoke out the exhaust?

Most likely piston ring glands damage, custom problem to these motors, vw **** up somewhere as the 1.4's, 1.6's, 1.8's and 2.0l does them same, most of them on piston no3, even the 5 pot audi 2.5l motor got the same issue,
Piston no1 and 3, it seems to be a software problems, have repaired a couple of motors with this problem and with new forge pistons and software changes, they ran all good

Reported to VW, two oil consumption tests done. Confirmed usage is excessive.
The car is now disabled... valve clamp came undone and valve collapsed. all linked it seems.
Now the fight with VWSA starts.
I would be interested to hear if any other people have experienced same. after a brief internet search there seems to be many others affected, specifically the 1.4 tsi 2013 motors after 60-75000 service.

Yes tons of known failures on them. VW should come to the party as it's not a once of or rare occurance.

i have been having the same problem but they did the oil consumption test and they state theres nothing wrong...my oil like comes on every 11000 km after the service done and when we check it theres no oil in the car, my polo TSI never ever had this issues but VW claims that the car should use up oil. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Enough usage to make the light come on after 11k km is not exactly hugeley excessive. Why don't you make a bit of a habit to check more often and top up instead of waiting for the light to come on(like maybe every second weekend or so)
1l every 1000km is what vw says is acceptable so a litre or two over 11k is not going to make them perk up their ears.

I was so close to buying one of these. Pretty happy I went 1.9 again. Minimal oil usage.

I've also heard 1l/1000km is normal from a vw mech. If that's the case, a 500ml on every tank would be normal or am I missing something?

"even the 5 pot audi 2.5l motor got the same issue"

Shoo, bought my RS3 on 25k km's, now on 66k km's driving it daily does not use a drop of oil, but will surely keep an eye out... interesting...
