Question about Cars & Trucks
My iload has done 60000 kms and the engine has seized due to no oil and was 8000 over service. wherew did the oil go we had no leaking and did blow and smoke from exhurst even oil light did not come on can you explain. melinda
Sorry for your loss Melinda, If,as you say,it wasn't leaking and there wasn't an excess of smoke coming out the exhaust that would signify burning it away...very little of motor oil evaporates and it dose this very slowly, much slower than does water. its the aromatic hydrocarbons that evaporate, the lighter molecules leaving the heavy molecules full of contaminants. Sludge. This process is very slow. But if it didn't leak out ,Burn away and very little of motor oil evaporates, then your oils still there. Its in the form of sludge. As to your oil light..... There's a reason their called idiot lights.

8000 over is not good. You lose some oil to what is called "blow by". This is when oil pushed by the rings around the pistons. This is a slow process but over time you could lose a bit and not notice any smoke. Also over time oil breaks down when not changed often causing a lot of it to stick to enternal parts of the engine which could be why you didnt get a light. Just some thoughts, sorry about your troubles

The oil pressure warning light only comes on when oil pressure drops below 4psi at this moment there is no oil in the engine most often it does not get to this point because oil, water etc is checked every week. It could be your engine was using oil which would point to an engine fault.

I had the same problem. I changed the pcv valve and checked the hose. It still did the same thing. Then I checked the metal tubing that the hose connects to and found it was full of hardened gunk. I sprayed PB Blaster into the tube let it soak for awhile. Then took an old choke cable, put it on a drill and ran it into the tube like a drain snake. It took a while of doing this over and over but eventually got it cleared out. Now, no more oil all over the engine and hood compartment.

First off, how the Hell did they issue a DOT Cetificate, if the Emissions are known to be off the clock. Without causing stress, do you have, or can obtain the Emission Test Result Print Out from the Testing Station test Equipment. This is something they cannot refuse. DO NOT AUTHORISE ANY REPAIRS Come back TO ME with your story.

Check the oil fill cap and the radiator cap, see if you have a milky scum accumulation on either one, can indicate a blown head gasket or a cracked cylinder where the oil is burning and allowing water intothe hot cylinder which causes white smoke to be emmitted from tailpipe.

My sons mazda 3 did the same thing 97 days after he bought it. The dealership changed the oil and did an inspection atleast thats what they said. When he came home he had me go out and listen to this loud ticking noise and he then took it to have the oil checked and they said there wasn't any. Where did 4 or 5 quarts go? Thank You,... Medina Mazda and Volkswagon for not covering it 97 days after you sold it.
