my 2001 Suburban with a 5.3L Vortec is leaking oil at the rate of about 1 quart per 2,000 miles. the entire bottom of the engine is wet. the odometer is at 212,500 miles.
it has new intake manifold gaskets, PVC, etc gaskets. all done prior to our Florida trip.
I forgot to look at the oil level in Florida and we then went to Savanna, GA.
Enjoyed the area a lot, but got a surprise in Savannah when the dash light came on and stated "OIL LEVEL LOW"
huh? was not aware that feature was on 2001 vehicles.
Sure as heck, the oil was just barely touching the bottom of the dipstick.
3 quarts of oil later, the light went out, the level showed 1 mark below FULL, and I left it at that.
the 2007 Pontiac Vibe at 98,000 miles uses about 1/2 quart per year, which is about 8,000 miles.
