8800 miles on my 2020 JL Diesel. Oil pressure light came on at 5000, took a quart and a half. At 8800 nothing shows on dipstick. Looks like it ate another quart. ANY THOUGHTS???
Yea I have already had an eco diesel ram implode and got a new engine at 5200 miles. Have a Cummins, no probs there, not givin up on the product, just frustrated. I put most miles runnin down fwy to Georgia and Florida - just can’t believe the damn thing is burnin oil.That is a lot, and dangerous, when it burns that much. I would check it every 300-500 miles, to be on the safe side.
I know it sounds contrary to what we have been taught, with gas engines, but diesels don't break in the same. After 500-1000 miles of normal driving, drive it like you stole it. Or, the rings might not seat properly. Oh, change the oil at 1000 miles, then drive it like you stole it. Or, load up with a heavy trailer, and pull it around, up and down mountains preferably.
diesels are meant to be driven hard, and the more you baby them, the more things can go wrong with the engine, DPF, EGR, etc.
My 06 Cummins didnt relax and feel broken in, until after 150,000 miles, because I didn't do any towing.
That is the oil light, or at least the precursor to the red one. There is no oil level sensor.Good ideas to check. The oil light never came on. It was the oil pressure sensor . It was low- showing 18 psi. That light plus me Uconnect notification email came through.
It looks like it is getting i. The coolant. The reservoir is dark grey.That is the oil light, or at least the precursor to the red one. There is no oil level sensor.
Edit: actually, I have no idea if there is a level sensor on the diesel, but I doubt it.
If you are mechanically savvy or have a dealer that is useful, take a look in your air intake for pooled up oil.
Many brand new vehicles lose oil in one way or another. Most people just have no idea it's happening.This isn't your grandpa's diesel, it shouldn't burn or lose any oil, if it makes oil or burns oil take it in and don't guess about it because it isn't your problem its the warranties problem. Top it off and take it in.
Stop driving it. I've had this happen to my sons first car, a 2001 Buick Century. The intake gasket needed replacing. It could have destroyed the.engine, but I caught it early. Great car after that. It was literally a little old lady's car. She died, and it hadnt been driven in years. Very low milage, but the gasket shrunk, from not being used.It looks like it is getting i. The coolant. The reservoir is dark grey.
