I'm on my second oil consumption test. The first test was prompted by the first alert I received shortly after buying the truck last July, when I found the truck 2 (or more) quarts low. The first consumption test (according to the dealership) showed the truck was "within specs."
Since then, I've added a quart on a few occasions after checking the oil and finding it low. I've never had to add this much oil to any vehicle I've owned since my '67 Mustang in high school.
I started getting low oil alerts again and initiated the second test. The dealership changed the oil (two weeks ago) and I am now in the 2,000 mile test.
I am now getting a low oil alert every time I drive the truck...The oil level appears full. I've checked my oil every morning this week. Its full. But the low alert happens every time I drive the truck. I've only driven about 400 miles since the test started.
Has anyone else experienced this?
