About 3-4weeks ago I done a oil & filter change on my mates 207 1.4 16v petrol (Peugeot engine)

I made sure the level was on the max mark on the dipstick and told him to check it every other day just because of the work he's had done (head gasket and camshaft seal replaced).

He called me today and said it's on the min mark on the dipstick.

He rang a independent specialist Peugeot garage and they said it's normal for these engines to use that much oil.

I was shocked to hear this, surely that's wrong?

What's the oil capacity on the dipstick between Max and Min?

I said it could be the piston rings but there isn't any blue smoke from the exhaust and the coolant is normal.

I did say to him try and find a good additive for the oil that will try and help. But I'm not sure if these additives will help or make it worse.

Any help would be great.

i run the daughters 207 with oil additive and it hardly uses oil, can take many months to slowly work though. Peugeot dont recomend it but was reading that citroen were adding it to some cars (same engine)

would guess you would need more oil/ filter changes and the screens on the solenoid valves may need cleaning more often.

Do you know what the additive was called?


I've told him to go for this one, Rislone 4447 Compression Repair Fix with Ring Seal. Seen it on amazon and has really good reviews.

looks a bit ott to me, i have used wynns hydraulic valve lift treatment and the carlube stuff, both clean carbon slowly , the wynns works faster though.

you will notice the oil go from olive brown to black within a month.

I take no responsibility if anything goes wrong or it doesnt work, i did it because her peugeot was drinking way to much oil when we first got it, it doesnt now.
