Its hard to believe that you put 3 quarts today and by tomorrow you don't have it any more, if you don't see the oil in the floor, you should see it coming out the muffler as fumes or burn oil.

SOURCE: Oil under car only in rear

reason you see it back there is because it is blowing out driving down road and wind is pushing to rear if you look underneath you will probbably see oil all underneath. check your oil filter and make sure it is tight

I need to do a oil change in my 96 2.6L magna how much oil do i need


Hey how r u after you drain the oil and change the filter put 4 quarts in and start the car wait for the oil pressure to built up about 2-3 minutes turn it off and check the oil this is the safest way to find out it a 4 cylinder so most likely 4 1/2 quarts but do what I said just to be safe be sure the gasket comes off with old oil filter if it stays on the motor and you put the new filter on top of it you will have a bad leak after you check the oil you will know how much oil you have to add then you will know how much it takes becareful getting under the car

My 1997 cadillac deville, northstar w/85, regular oil changes, burns almost 2 quarts of oil every change. It is not leaking.


If your car is losing oil, and if there is no evidence of oil leaking, there is no question that it is either losing it through piston rings or through the head (head gasket or valve guides).
Best thing to do is use a HEAVIER WEIGHT oil than specified for the vehicle when new, regularly monitor your oil level and be sure it never falls below one quart low, and consider having the engine overhauled when you start noticing a performance deficit or hear mechanical noise (such as rod knock) from the engine.

Losing oil @ fast rate but no leaks found. only smokes @ start up


given the lack of smoke i would suspect head gaskets are leaking. check your coolant

04 Grand Prix oil leak


if it is not leaking then it is being burned by the engine, how many miles go by before you need to add oil?, if u are adding more than one quart every 1000 miles u have piston reing problems and or valve guide seal leaks. U won't see any smoke in most cases unless you are really going through the oil, like 1 quart every 300 miles.

Radiator hoses


If the coolant is going into the engine the oil should look milky.
You might want to check your water pump to make sure has not worn out and is leaking from there.
