Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
I do know if is the engine pressure but my car now is very slow and lost a lot of oil I did not see any liking if someone can help me to resolve it I will appreciate.
If the oil is disappearing with no visible stains on the ground, there are a couple possibilities. One is that it's leaking out under the car while driving, and blowing out along the bottom of the car and on the road as you drive. Look at the bottom of the car and see if you see streaks of oil.
If not, and you're down on power, it's possible that you have a head gasket leak that is allowing oil to be burned in the combustion chambers. Do you have visible blue smoke from the tailpipes, especially when revving the engine? Blue smoke is a telltale sign of an engine burning oil.
How quickly are you losing oil? Can you top it off and then check the dipstick regularly to see how quickly (mileage-wise) you're losing it?
