SOURCE: Oil Change two weeks ago and oil level is low already???

I assume you have no leaks as you say. Your van does hold 5 quarts of 10w30 oil with filter change. The level was 1/4" above the add mark, which is less than 1 quart low. You drove the van 1,300 miles so it is very possible that it could burn that much oil in that many miles without you seeing much smoke. Top it off and have someone else drive it. Have them get up to around 60 mph, then let off the accelerator and let it coast down to 30 mph, then accelerate fully while you follow in another vehicle. If your van is burning oil you will see a big puff of blue smoke when they accelerate after coasting. If you do not I would suspect you were cheated out of about 1/2 quart of oil. You would not be the first person this has happened to. Top it off and check as I described and then check the level after driving another 1,300 miles. If it is still full find another place to change your oil as the place you went are crooks.

SOURCE: got an oil change about a month ago, my oil light

You may have a leaking headgasket. If so the gasket may be partially bloking the oil return or worse. Have a mechanic check it over to determine the cause. Good luck!

Hi! My 1999 Cadillac Deville for about 2 weeks started messaging low refrig-ac-off. Check engine light on!.


When you change your oil is up to you,you set the
months & miles you go. Any car with a reminder
for oil is just a gadget

You were told that your low on a/c refrigerant by the
message

Now the check light related or not has to be addressed,
by checking for codes & diagnosing the effected system

Your a/c system needs repair,not added to, only to leak out
& polute the atmosphere

2003 Hyndai Elantra oil light has started flickering, Why?


If it flickers at idle, it "might" be engine wear, especially if you are approaching 200,000 miles. It might also be a faulty oil pressure gauge sending unit which is a little more likely.

It may be but not for sure. Your oil pump may have gone bad. I would check the engine and see if you have a leak somewhere around the belt. Has your check engine light came on any? If so, you need to get it scanned for codes. Autozone and other part stores offer the same service. When you say pulse, are you meaning it takes off without you pressing it down?

If the car is smoking through the muffler then its burning the oil if not, check for a loose engine filter or leaky oil pressure sensor that leaks only when the car is running.
