Question about 1988 Mazda 929

2 Answers

Ran low on oil wont start but turns over

I recently bought a 1988 Mazda 929 two weeks ago. I took it to get the oil changed at jiffy lube 4 days ago and they informed me the oil was very low but the leak appeared to be very minimal and wouldnt be a problem. (It must be burning the oil) I was driving today and the car suddenly shut off so I coasted to the side of the road. I checked the oil and it was very low. I put 5 qts of oil it in and tried to start it up again, it turns over but will not start. What should I do?

Drain the oil and replace the filer as you have overfilled the crancase. These engines only take 500ml or half a litre of oil to go from the low to high mark on the dipstick 5 qtrs of oil is like 5ltrs of oil. the total oil capacity in these engines is 4.3 ltres of oil including 500 ml for the filter so you have overfilled the engine by about 4.5 ltres

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


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..

Truck died on me kinda studdering then just stoped


Not to be hurtfull,but, I would not use or listen to jiffy lube or a mechanic that discribes your vehicle issues as -gone. Find and use a good local repair shop. Perferably one with an ASE Certified Tech, that will be looking over your vehicle. Need more info or the vehicle. Could be a timing chain,fuel pump,worn out distributor etc.

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
