Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a 99 Pontiac Grand Prix, I had the water pump replaced last week and a oil change a week or two before that. however the past couple of days the low oil light would come on and i would check the oil and see that its low so I added 3 quarts two days ago and the oil light went off. Today the low oil and coolants both came on (which I also added last week) so I added coolant and another 3 quarts of oil. After that the low oil light would come on and go off after i turn the car off and start it back up. And when the low oil light is not on the oil pan light and check gauges light on the window display would come on and off as im driving. I dont kow if its a short with that or what, but I am more concerned with why my car is burning up oil?
Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
