Question about Cadillac CTS

2006 Cadillac cts is burning gas faster than the normal rate after i got an oil change at jiffy lube 2 weeks ago

2 weeks ago i went to jiffy lube for a full synthetic oil change. I realized last week i have been burning more gas than normal. I had to fill up my tank 2 times within a week and i hardly drive anywhere far. I also noticed i am at 93% oil and its only been a little over 2 weeks. What could the issue be?

I dont think there is a connection between an oil change and the gallons per mile.
With that age car, I suggest a Terra engine clean. It will blow away nine years of gunk from the spark plugs, fuel injectors, cylinders and exhaust. Should give you more power, more miles..

SOURCE: Engine light is on.

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.

SOURCE: gas gauge not woking properly gas tank only accepts a little gas

I had the same problem. My gas gage would read full and as I drove the gage would read empty; even when I had a full tank of gas. All I had to do is buy a new gas cap... yes that is all! $15.00 and a day later the gas gage is fixed.

Any type of fluid leak is not normal. Especially engine oil.

What would cause my car to burn oil ,lots of it,no smoking tho


I had a similar problem after having my oil changed at jiffy lube. The problem was that they hadn't fully tightened the oil filter, so it was leaking oil when the engine was running. They did it to me on two cars. I don't go there anymore.

If you don't see smoke, you're not burning it. If you don't see it under where you park your car, it's not leaking when the car is parked.

2006 after putting gas in my the check engine light came on,had oil changed one week ago first time this has happen .while driving the car its jerking and shaking also doing this sitting. please help.


You could have picked up some bad gas, but it's more likely that your gas cap is not sealed all the way - a common problem. Tighten the cap - if it's the problem the car will start running smoothly almost immediately and the check engine light will reset itself in a day or two.

JUST GOT OIL CHANGE AT JIFFY LUBE ...NOW CAR DIES OUT IN NEUTRAL


Jiffy Lube is notorious for taking things apart and not putting them back like their supposed to do. I USED to use them....try looking at the air filter, cause they always take it out to show you. I would bet its an airflow problem....please rate me...thanks
