Q: Replace oil pan gasket in 2009 Lexus RX 350

asked by on September 17, 2016

Losing about 1/4 of a quart of oil in 500 miles

My car has 80000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This would indicate either a major oil leak or the car is potentially burning oil which is a much more critical issue. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose the low/leaking oil level and make necessary repairs.
