Burning oil is normally the result of worn out parts; seals, valves and piston rings. All of which work together to keep oil out of the combustion chamber. The combustion chamber is where the ignition spark happens to start your vehicle. If these parts that are keeping the oil out are damaged, causing internal leaking, it then causes internal burning of the oil. Another possibility could be that oil is leaking or escaping then landing on a hot surface. The reason for oil to be leaking or getting out would be an improperly fitted oil filter, damage to the oil pan, but also damage to the filler cap. The number one way to notice burning oil is by the smell. You can also see the engine oil light appearing on the dashboard as well as your oil level declining steadily over a period of time. Remember that the engine oil is very important to your car and its ability to run, without getting these issues fied it can lead to major engine damage.
