Several things can cause an engine to burn oil, and all of them are pretty normal in an engine with lots of miles. Oil control rings are often a problem. They are on the piston and while they can be replaced, you'd be better off buying a new engine. Other things that can cause an engine to burn oil are valve seals (common) and valve guides (uncommon). If you have a high mileage engine, I wouldn't worry unless you have a big cloud of black smoke coming out the exhaust. Best thing you can do is just check the oil often.
On the outside? nota lot. it will heat up and probibly burn off in hot areas of your engine and cause a little smoking in your engin bay. but the rist will mosty drip off, how much oil was it?
Generally this is going to be an indicator or a fuel problem, as the engine is sending too much raw fuel to the cat to burn. First things to check would be spark plugs or wires. Running with a cat burning red hot for long can cause the cat to fail, and in worse senarios even burn through the floorboard.
added to much oil If you added too much oil that can and will cause engine wear and damage. If you are loosing Oil it is either being burnt, or it is leaking. If it is burning oil it is normally caused by worn piston rings.
The year, make, model and engine info would help.
Adding too much oil will cause your engine to burn off the excessive oil which causes a lot of carbon buildup in your engine and a lot of blue smoke out your tailpipe. If the oil level is high enough, it can contact the crankshaft and foam up. If the oil foams it can damage the engine.
you will blow out the seals and that is not good to much oil is just as bad as not enough the crank could also beat the oil to a froth and cause oil starvation to the engine the bearings could burn up pdq
if you press the pedal to much that is what can cause the engine to flood
Someone who doesn't want to burn gasoline. A steam engine has the ability to use anything that will burn. Had the technology been applied to steam engines like it was to gasoline engines, we possibly would have some viable steam engine transportation today. Steam engines were less efficient than gasoline or diesel engines, that is why they are not used much today.
It should be OK if it isn't too much. The engine will probably burn it but it could poissibly cause the spark plug to foul and not fire; requiring one to remove it and clean it. It will not RUIN the engine.
Too much current being applied or the wire not being a large enough (gauge), will cause wires to burn out.
the 02 sencers are in the pipe, if there is a problem with them it would cause the check engine light to come on but the pipes themselves wouldn't
Too much oil in your car will not cause it to throw a rod. Too much oil in the engine will create a higher than normal engine pressure and can cause the engine seals to fail.
too much fuel, excessive oil consumption
Depending on the engine in a 172 they will burn from 6-10 gallons per hour
It's just the complement to fuel displacement. How much air the engine takes in affects how much fuel it can burn.
Not enough oil in a vehicle will not cause the car to overheat but instead fail due to oil starvation. The engine is have to much friction occur on the internal components which will cause the engine to fail.
It's not entirely clear how much "confusion" would be involved, since acid reflux is the cause of heartburn.
Black smoke is caused by the engine ~not~ burning all of its fuel. The most common cause of incomplete fuel burn is a clogged air filter, exhaust system (muffler) or injectors covered with carbon build-up. Another cause is too much fuel entering the engine to be burned due to either bad calibration or too heavy a load.
too much oil in the engine will cause of airation and will create too much pressure to your engine and will damage the headgasket.
Potentially yes, but it would burn much less efficiently than propane or butane which is used in cars as it is a larger molecule that requires more energy to burn. this would also most likely damage the engine so it could be used but would be ill advised.
1961 210 0470 engine would like to know the spectrum from flat out 155 knots to slow cruse 110 knots fule burn average at diffirent speeds laters thanks
Have the alterntor and voltage regulator checked.
Current can cause heating; too much current, and a circuit will burn out.
to much fuel is going to the engine for it to burn it all
Yes,giving too much oranges can cause acid burn in a Guinea Pig.
