Re: Oil Consumption 2014 Cherokee Limited
Thanks. I did check it this time. They had it filled right to the top of the crosshatch. At 1,500 miles it was down about 20% of the way on the crosshatched area. That was 2/14. Two weeks later on 2/28 it was only 550 miles more and down to about 20% above the bottom part of the crosshatched area or 80% down. I'm taking it in tomorrow to see what they think. Never really checked it right after they did the 2nd oil change. We had 4 free ones from the dealer and when I looked at the paperwork on the first two changes they had 7 units on the first work order and 5 units on the second. I mentioned this to the repair dealership(a different dealer) but they didn't think much of it. Hard to believe with all of the sensors that they don't have one for low oil or that no codes were ever generated during our ordeal. When I called in Saturday the guy at the desk ask me if they had done a test where they put some dye in the oil. I told him I was never told that they tried this yet. I believe they go on whether or not the vehicle uses more than a quart of oil per 1,000 miles.
Don't know if low oil is a bigger problem in variable valve timing vehicles or not but that's , my hunch. Had to laugh when they put 10,000 miles till the next oil change on the sticker. Thanks, Jack
