SOURCE: My 2004 Kia Optima is

At this age of car(assuming average mileage)you should not be using synthetic low viscosity oil.
a semi synthetic 10/40 is factory recommended for cars over 60k.(far east/china handbook) i know that many mechs will tell you otherwise but it will NOT cause ANY damage.as these cars are on sale in china and use 20/50 as standard.(they dont sell any other type for kia/hyundai).this WILL slow down the oil bypassing the rings and burning.supercars that are HANDBUILT/plasma coated bores, obviously NEED super oils but the average car?........

SOURCE: oil

Hi michelle2551,providing the oil dipstick is the right one for your car then if it reads 1/2 qrt low it should be topped up typically when an oil change is performed and the car is started it will fill the oil filter therefore appearing a little low, it may read full initially but once it is run and shutoff it reads low follow the manufacturers oil level indicator and top it up hope this helps good luck

SOURCE: what could cause my engine to consume oil between oil changes

under warranty? how many miles? what engine? what kind of driving do you do? what brand and weight of oil do you use? is all this well documented?......I think 1 qt per 800 or 1000 miles is considered normal, but I would talk to the service manager at the dealer about it. theres got to be a problem with that.

SOURCE: ticking in engine after oil change

this ticking problem is probably your hydraulic lifters, when the oil is drained they also drained and they sometimes take a while to bleed so they may be noisy... the noise should be coming from the top of the engine...

I would just check that you put in the right oil aswell just incase, if the oil was to thin it may be a little noisy.. its definately a good idea to make sure the right oil was put in (e.g. 40w-50) < this is the viscosity of the oil and to find out just ask someone in you auto parts store what oil a 92 geo storm should take...

but if the noise goes away after a drive then it was just the lifters and is not a big prob

White smoke coming out of tail pipe.


WHITE smoke? Or BLUE smoke? White smoke is usually caused by burning antifreeze (possible blown head gasket). Engine oil burning causes a bluish colored smoke.

Changing the oil two months ago means absolutely nothing to me. I have customers that travel 6000 miles or more in a month. Oil consumption is measured in volume over miles, not volume over months. It is normal for most 4 cylinder engines to use a little less than 1/2 quart in 1000 miles (even more than that for 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engines).

How many n what kind of oil i need to use for a nissan quest 1999


If it has the 4 cylinder in it 5W20 and if you have the 6 cylinder it could be either 5W20 or 10w30. I usually use 5W20 in cold months and 10W30 in hot months. As far as capacity goes, as a general rule if you change the oil but not the filter, not something I recommend, then you start with 4 quarts and adjust from there (Basically by 5 quarts). If you change the oil and filter then start with 4 and a half quarts and check the level and adjust as needed. You could use up to 5 quarts maybe a little more. Make sure you check the level before starting then start the vehicle for 5 minutes shut it down then check the level again after 5 minutes. Make sure the level is between the marks.

No more than 4 quarts since it is a 4 cylinder car. The best way to know how many quarts is to go by how many cylinders the car has.

Oil capacity


4 quarts if you want to make sure put 3 1/2 quarts first then check the oil level with the dipstick. If still a little low then add the rest. It's 4 quarts though for a 2.2 l size engine.
