Suburban Oil Level?
ok,,,, what is going on,,,, ?? I took the Burb to a dealer today,,,,
Oil waring light
Oil pressure gauge floats from 40 to 0
Oil was up to top of hash mark on dipstick
Dealer did some tests,,, really did not find anything,,, mentioned there are oil pump issues with this vehicle/engine.
So,,,, they changed oil, and added this MOA stuff to oil,, then said to watch it and see what happens, and not to change oil for 4000 miles,,,,,also said that using/burning 1 qt of oil every 1000 miles was normal for this vehicle,,,, ugh,, that was never mentioned by sales department,,,,,,,,.???
So when I got home,today,,, I checked oil,,,, level is way above hash mark,, and covers an 8 digit number above the top of the hash mark on stick. It looks like maybe a couple quarts more is added to get it where it is now on stick,[guess ?],,, "I" carum-bah !!!!!!!
Book says 6 quarts with filter,,, that always put me to top of hash mark,,,,
What is full on a Chevy Burb ?
Is 6 quarts in this for the last 2 years running it 2 quarts low ???????
When I drove to the dealer,,, had a couple warning lights,,, and oil gauge got down to 0 !!!!
After leaving dealer,,,, oil gauge was 50-60 all the way home !!!!!
But on stick it 'looks' overfull ??????
Did the oil pump pick-up tube fall off ????
They said if oil light comes on again,, then they will replace oil pump,,,, !!!!
I asked what is the 'normal' oil pressure on gauge suppose to read,,, was told 10 to 40 or so,,,,,
Holy Cow,,, where will I be if that happens,, near home,, on vacation,,,, do I drive it or park it ???? Been changing my own oil for 40 years,,, now I am lost ????!!!!!
What is Full ?
