Q: My engine oil has been drying up every 3 months and I can't seem to find any leaks. What could be causing the drying do fast?

asked by on

I bought this used car 1 yr ago. I only drive my car to work and I would normally speed at 80mph in the freeway. I just changed my oil 5 months ago but now it's drying up again and it hasn't reached 7,000 miles yet. I don't see any leaks. What is causing the oil to dried up so fast?

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Q: Small engine fire before dying

Hi there. This sounds like you had an electrical fire that possibly could've burned some essential wires for proper engine performance. Have a mechanic (as this is dangerous) diagnose this issue further with a sequence of diagnostic procedures.
