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.

Tip

Engine Flush.


I get ask this question a lot. Should I do an engine flush? The answer to that is NO! If you have your vehicle serviced at a quick change lube, they will push services like this to you, especially if your a woman. Jiffy Lube is notorious for doing this. Every automotive manufacturer will state in their warranty, if you do this, they will void the warranty simply because it will cause a major engine failure. Over time sludge and deposits build up in an engine, when you flush it, it breaks up these deposits and they settle in the oil pan. Even when you drain the oil and place a new oil filter on, some of these broken up deposits remain in the engine plugging up the oil lube ports. This stops oil from properly lubing vital parts inside the engine causing engine failure. Products like engine flush are known as snake oils in the automotive repair business. The best and safe way to stop sludge build up or remove it, is to use a good quality synthetic oil and quality oil filter. This will end your sludge problem over time. One more thing, avoid quick change lube centers, any of them no matter if it's EZ- Lube, Jiffy Lube, Wal-Mart and on and on. The people working there are not automotive techs, the have not went to collage or have a degree in automotive technology. No one with a degree in automotive technology is going to be working at a quick lube center for minimum wage, they will be working in a good independent service center or dealership making $22 or more per hour. For more information on this, go to youtube and search Jiffy Lube Scam. There are tons of news story video's on all of these centers.

How do I fix the Variable valve timing on 2008 saturn vue


Jiffy Lube is not a diagnostic shop

Take to a local repair shop that has been
in some place for 25 years

That is not something you can to yourself

The codes are used to diagnose the faults

I would suggest you never use a Jiffy lube or
other quick lube places,they could ruin your vehicle
& all of them have for decades ,been subject to many
fraud investigations

ENGINE KNOCKS AND CHATERS AFTER OIL CHANGE - JIFFY LUBE PUT 5W30 OIL IN ENGINE.


You did not mention the year make and model, but unless it is a diesel I doubt the weight of oil would do it.
I would take it back as quick as possible before it locks up.
You have checked to make sure the oil level is full, right ?

Oil leak in 96 odyssey


Do you see a huge oil puddle under the car after it sits overnight (it would be huge!)? If no then the engine is burning the oil, you don't see smoke because the catalytic converter burns it up.

Got oil change done at Jiffy Lube. I got my transmission flushed & refilled last month. Now Jiffy Lube is saying I got a little transmission leak caused by wear & tear. How much you think it should...


unfortunately sometimes when you get the engine or transmission flushed it can cause an oil leak I don't know what it will cost but I would be getting other quotes & get the work done at the cheapest quote, it pays to shop around........hope this helps......cheers.

Every 400 miles leaks half quart of oil


Oil leaks can come from many places. The most common are the Valve Cover Gaskets, around the Oil Pan and the Rear Main Seal of the engine. You might also want to check that your oil filter is not on crooked. Sometimes this can happen when you go to a Jiffy Lube or quick oil change service place. Even just a little crooked can result in a leak.

If you cannot follow a leak to it's source, then it is likely that your car being a 1991 is just getting old and burning more oil. You can help extend your cars life by giving it a thorough tune up and making sure to take extra good car of it. You can also start putting a thicker grade of oil in it, such as 50 weight instead of 20 or 30 weight (which are the most common).

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.
