Even with a new car,unless it burns more than a quart in 500 miles dealers will not do anything for you under warranty. So yes experts consider it normal.

4. then pull out the oil dip stick from engine
5. and clean the dip stick on a rag.
6. Put dip stick back in engine
7. pull out again and check the level showing on the dip Stick
8. If level is too low on dip stick and is not at full level go back to step 1

These steps ensures you avoid over filling the engine with oil

Tip for beginners
The 4 litre oil bottle is way too much oil for an engine to handle.
If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

What are the oil change guidelines for 2005 E-350 superduty chassis with more than 90,000 miles...the same question for the transmission fluids?


The good practice is to change the oil every 3,000 miles...but what really dictates this is what type of driving condition you are incurring.

If you drive all highway miles then an oil change between 1,500 and 3,000 miles is highly encouraged.

Dirty/dusty conditions....definitely around 1,500 to 2,000 miles.

The average for tranny fluid/filter changes goes from the additional 60-90,000 mile mark and then every 50,000-60,000 miles after that....it is shortened by heavy duty and dirty/dusty conditions.

2005 buick Lacrosse fuel filter and other problems...


No a Plugged fuel filter would not cause more fuel consumption but would lead to damage to the injectors and the fuel pump, and is much cheeper than the fuel pump or injectors. And I believe you mean Flex plate broke? And I do believe you should check with the dealer this unit should have a 100,000 drive train warrenty and they should kick in on the transmisson.
