Question about 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
I have found out that the engine oil level is low, I had a 1000 km trip last week, and i have used the engine oil for 3000 km since last oil change. is that normal?
It is quite common for the oil level to decrease after a long trip, especially if prior to the long trip the vehicle was mainly used for short trips.
Some oil dilution occurs during short trips (due dissolved contaminants) as the oil rarely reaches it correct operating temperature.
When the oil heats up it boils of these contaminants and thus loses volume.
Ensure there are no oil leaks from the motor, change the oil and note any further oil use during the next 1000km or so.
Most likely, the motor will not use significant oil over the next oil change period.
If it continues to consume oil at the rate you described, you will need to look further for a cause.
