You mean that would suggest that the culprit was the Pennzoil Platinum and Ultra all along?Blue Oval said:Check the oil level in 1000 miles. If its still near the current level I think you will have found and also solved your consumption issue. :thumb:
That could be the reason - if nothing else has been changed or fixed, time and miles will tell us the story. We know its not leaking because any significant leakage (3 qts in 5700 miles) would leave something where you normally park and a dye test failed to show significant leaks. If the oil isn't dripping out anyplace its consumed internally, up from the bottom from bad rings, down from the top from bad valve components, or getting into the air intake through PCV components.You mean that would suggest that the culprit was the Pennzoil Platinum and Ultra all along?
Hmmm. You have a very good thought.Rick H said:Gold,
Maybe the independent oil changer spilled oil when removing the old filter and had not being cleaning it up. Maybe the dealer preparing to look for leaks cleaned up all areas with any appearance of oil leakage.
A lot of maybes, but possible.
