They only have to flex for suspension travel which is minimal , are in a cool place, ans in the rear away from all the debree. I checked the oil stick and it definitely showed it was full and not the level when i brought it in and they said before the service it was fine. Give me what I paid for it and I would consider trading it in on 2015 providing propblem fixed. From above, reach in around the cylinder heads and run your finger along the valve cover gasket on the underside. Boxer engines don't burn oil. Any suggestions on how i should approach the dealer on this issue since now i know there is an actual problem with this stretch of vehicles? We suggest it every 30k as well as do most dealers, actually probably 90%.
Im amazed at how quiet the engine is and how well it runs and drives. So I will assume no real leak in exhaust system for now. I just bought it last year, they knew of these problems. I bought 2 Qts so that I can add when it uses alittle. Every Owners manual you will read regardless of make, model, year will tell you to check the oil, typically every tank of fuel. When I bought the car they boasted that the car should only need its oil changed every 7k miles. After it did that the second time, I was pulling off the freeway, when the engine turned itself off, on the exit ramp.
I am in New York and it looks like they get 4 attempts to fix problem before I am eligible for Lemon Law. My experience tells me that, if the car is new, it should not burn oil! After 2nd oil change which I did at Grease Monkey for convenience I had to bring it back in twice to Grease Mnkey to top off when oil light came on, so I returned to the dealer for 3rd oil change and complained. Is there anything I can do at this point? However on the Tuesday before the oil light came on. I took very good care of this car, in fact I saved all maint. The dealer told me that the 1-2 quarts was normal. There was only one issue, right head was leaking oil on the top, where oil channel is located top rear corner of right head.
They are cheap plasic and always spill the coffee. Using 10+ quarts of synthetic oil is nuts. Maintaing a car is not that difficult and as for oil changes we are simply arguing over this formula. Part of the design is to keep the engine at a lower rpm, thus using less fuel but also creating less energy in terms of thermal values, allowing the engine to technically run cooler in the combustion chamber over a given amount of time. Thanks so much, I look forward to hearing from you. All oil changes and services are done by the dealership. He also said there was 3.
But that was over 8 years of ownership. I filled out one of the surveys they sent me and the next thing I new my local dealership was calling me to bring in the car. They checked the rings and guides. If you post here and your are disrespectful, hateful or ignorant about the subject, you will get a less friendly post. I found all the smoke was comming from the passenger side of the motor, on the exaust below the timing belt cover. Justin I purcased 2012 Subaru Impreza and within a month the oil light came on.
Two days later, oil light back on and discovered they had not tightened down the reservoir cap. I keep copious records, btw. Then I will be headed over to the Toyota Dealer. The oil was low, so oil was added. I can never seem to get a good reading on the oil. I also sometimes waited 5 or 6000 miles between oil changes. Probably burning oil in exhaust tickles rear 02 sensor.
I totally disagree that every car does that…. However at 2500 miles I was low another qrt and they told me there is nothing they can do for me. You are correct about no oil light. Any idea where all that oil could be coming from would be great help. Time for an oil change again, out of curiosity I checked my oil prior to making my appt. When it comes to this problem, time is of the essence. I then drove on and found a store to buy some oil and replace to the full level.
I just purchased a new Forester for my wife, and they recommended bringing it in every 5000 miles. Lastly you have no idea how someone took care of a one year old car with 44k on it. Those are not questions to you, just thinking out loud. I bought it new, now its a rebuild. He listens, said yep, it is the pully assembly. Oil consumption and compression do not have that much to do with another as its the oil control rings that help determine oil consumption, rather then the compression rings alone. Ford as well, same for Honda, I am sure I could list more.
