Changed my oil in November. Had my brother check my fluids just last week. Truck was running funny. He saw that the oil was almost out. Only a thousand miles on oil change. Had never been low on oil before. He thinks gaskets need replaced. Oil on the oil pan. I put a couple quarts in. Still has oil for three days now. Or smoking or no oil on the ground where I park.
My car has 14300 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello - oil leaks can be simple - valve cover gasket drooling all over the plugs/coils/wires, etc. or sneaky. A leaky front crankshaft seal will slobber oil all over the bottom of the truck. A leaking rear main crankshaft seal, which can also occur with a blocked crankcase ventilation system, will also spray oil underneath, but not show as a drip in your driveway - pretty-much only occurs while driving. I recommend a oil leak inspection to first determine when the oil is leaking from, performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, and give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
