Slip indicator stayed on. No unusual noise, no abnormal vibration. Mechanic said low oil level due to oil leakage through pistons. Had car serviced at same dealership a month ago, approx. 1000 miles since. They recommended to change engine. Are they correct?
My car has 280000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello. It sounds like you have two different issues going on. The slip indicator will come on when there is a traction control issue or when there is a malfunction in the system. Most of the time this is caused by a bad steering angle sensor or a yaw sensor. As for the engine issue, it is common for engines to burn some oil. It is considered normal for an engine to burn a quart or two of oil between oil changes.
