    1KD-FTV

    my engine is consuming more oil than ussual.... almost 1/4 each 2 weeks or so... its not leaking cause i would had noticed it. I've noticed the high consuming happens when i travel short or long trips.. any idea what could be causing this consume? if anybody could give me any info.

    I've heard rumors that the 1KD-FTV after 100k gives cylinder head issues, but my prado has only 110k in the clock, no engine power loss , compression loss, weird noise or anything ... replaced the air filter, replaced the oil and filter but the consume continues.....

    I thought you had a 1kzte engine in your Prado? (previous posts)
