In Reply to: Down 1qt. after only 1900 mi ? posted by Jim on April 02, 1999 at 21:26:37:

IF most of that loss occurred during the 1st 500 or so miles, then I wouldn't worry about it. If you didn't check it in the 1st few hundred miles then wait and see if that rate of loss continues before getting too alarmed.

: 1999 2.3 , checked the oil today and discovered the oil was down nearly a quart. 1900 total miles. I never had a car that used a qt. in so few miles. I going down to PEP boys and pick a qt. of Mobil One to keep on hand. Dealer
: recmd. 5 W 30. Any experience is welcome.
