Did a compression test on my 2013 non turbo. 3 cylinders are about 80 the fourth was 59. Does anyone know the safe compression for this engine. Losing oil consumption and power loss. Dealer says it's with-in the limits for oil loss. 2.2 quarts in 3000 miles. Car only has 44000 miles. Thanks if anyone can help.

That's far out of spec for a compression test, compression shouldn't vary that much between cylinders. If need be, ask the dealer to perform the compression test as well.

I'm not sure what the compression ration of the non-turbo motors is. I'd ventuer it's well above 8:1 that the turbos use. Normally, an 8:1 motor will read 125PSI, and there should never be more than 10% variation between any 2 cylinders.

Also - the dealer sounds like they are full of $hit. I've had engines with almost 200,000 miles (big block V-8s from the 70s) and they did not use a drop of oil in 3,000 miles. 2.2 quarts is over half the capacity of this motor. Absolutely in no universe is that normal consumption.
