Unditected Oil-guzzling: Engine scanning or what remedy?

    My 5 yr. Linea is consuming too much engine oil recently from some 6 months.
    At that time I had it checked at Fiat Autorised Service in Ernakulam: they said a loose screw, on tightening it will be ok.
    But still I noticed excess oil usage, about a liter in a month, more Kms, more consumption.

    But not a drop is spilling.

    Can I need to scan the engine, to locate or detect why/where is oil going?

    Any experience to share, please ?

    Looks like yours is Linea MJD. I doubt there is any way to detect this from a scanner. Usual suspects are - turbo, engine gasket, leaky cylinders burning oil, oil leakage from the sump (there may be more I am not aware of). You have ruled out the last possibility as there are no oil spillages under the car. Other suspects have to be investigated by a competent mechanic.

    Sorry for the delayed response...

    Yes, it is an MJD.
    Can anybody in Kochi or nearby towns tell me any non-Fiat Service Center and Fiat spare parts Dealer, please ?

    This time I think better to consult and repair at a non-Fiat
