I have 70,000 miles, it does not smoke, doesn't make any noises. Drives fine. After doing some research does anyone think it could be the PCV valve? Do have black in the tailpipe.

How many miles on it and does it smoke? If it does, your oil rings are bad.

Bought the envoy w/ 70,000 miles, fresh oil change. @ 74,000 miles it was 1.5 qrts low, put in 5w30, checked oil 2 weeks later it was 1 qrt low. do not see smoke or any leaking.


I just bought a 2005 envoy too. I read in the manual that the 4.6 6 cyl engine needs 7 qts total. 2 Over the normal oil change. Is it possible it wasn't low to start? I noticed when Walmart changed the oil they charged extra for the change because it needed the two extra qts. However my dip stick has oil over the full mark. Seemed strange but I haven't had any leaks and after 3k mile no change in level. Make sure you had the correct about the first time.

2000 dodge intrepid 140,000 miles uses 5w30 synthetic oil. today the oil light started coming on only at stop signs. pleae advise, thank you


It might be time to move to 10W30 oil in your 11 year old vehicle. Do you change your own oil? Try 3 qts 5W30 and 2 qts 10W30 of what you normally use.

Oil pressure at 0 on 2005 trailblazer


It sure sounds like the oil sending unit is at fault,now sometimes,not always,the oil sending unit will seep oil or leak oil if they go bad,but like I said,not always,change the unit,and the oil and filter just for precaution.

How many quarts of oil do i put in a 2000 ford focus


Depending on what engine this is, you should drain oil, change filter, add 3.75 qts of oil, then start engine to check for leaks. Turn engine off, then check the oil fill on the dipstick. Add to proper amount generally at 4 or 4.25 qts.

Let me know if this helps,

Just wanted to know if 03 jeep liberty sport is known for any kind of oil consumption. got mine checked this morning and i was 3 qts low! no leaks that we can see.


yes oil consumption is known between oil changes so keep an eye on checking it once a month, cuz a healthy and happy motor uses some oil! dont worry its normal in every vehicle.

2005 Passat TDI wagon sucking oil


what would a CV joint have to do with oil consumption? the answer ZERO, if the VC gasket was leaking that bad you would have a large puddle of oil under the engine every time you parked it for more than a few minutes, so doubt that is the problem, has the dealer run a clyinder leak down test to determine if the piston rings are sealing properly? that is the next step, sure sounds like they don't know what they are doing and they are guessing, make them do it for free, they changed out the turbo for no reason it seems, u are out $1800! and no change in oil consumption, make them do there job right or get ahold of the dept of consumer affairs for your state and open a case, that will light a fire under there ****.
