Yes a regular certified mechanic should be able to fix any oil leak without to much trouble.Some leaks can be a bit more extensive and costly to repair but on the norm ANY mechanic should be able to fix it..

I can tell you that it sounds like someone is trying to take you for a ride.. I've been a mechanic for 28 years. And I've never heard of o rings going bad on a motor that only has 56000 miles. Change the oil filter again.. make sure that it's not a fram.. gram filters have been known to cause your oil pressure light come on. Hope this helps you.

First thing to do is determine where the leak is from and then you will be able to determine your cost. It is not that hard of issue to repair as long as you can get to it to repair.

Had an oil change at the local express lube on my 2002 Hyundai and have been doing so for years. Noticed that the lifters were noisy (sounded like a dodge slant 6). I figured it was my imagination and it...


As mad as you are, and I would be too, you have to prove damages. If you were to take this claim to small claims court right now, you would lose as you have no evidence of damage.

I would immediately take it to a very reputable mechanic, keeping in mind that if push comes to shove in the future, you will have to have the mechanic testify in court, so choose a good one and one that can communicate well.

I would have them do a full diagnostic, probably drop the oil pan and look for any signs of damage. That's when you'll know what to ask for in a claim of the express lube, or in a small claims case.

In the meantime, I'd tell everybody I know what happened to you and warn them against going to that shop.

Oil consumption in 2005 acura rl. the car has 100,000miles and we have been told 1 quart every 1,000 miles is normal.


A quart /1000 miles is on the high side for that mileage- something abnormal is causing it.
1) Ensure any motor oil leaks are fixed to ensure they are not contributing to the oil loss.
2) Observe if any blue smoke from exhaust on downhill coast/deceleration - if present it indicates worn valve stem oil seals (these can be replaced relatively cheaply).
3) If blue smoke from exhaust on acceleration the piston rings may be worn- (costly repair).

Sensors went bad, at 60 k miles, is this covered in warranty


you need to take the vehicle to a real mechanic. Jiffy lube employes are not mechanics. Change your oil at jiffy lube and get mechanical work done at a reputable auto dealer or mechanic shop.
