A lot means?
Did it register on the stick at all?
Before last night, when did you last check your oil last?
When you noticed it was ‘under by a lot’, did you:
1) Add oil to the recommended level; or
2) Start ‘er up and go for a spin?
A few people have posted similar stories here and some of them turned out to be owner neglect. Not saying that’s your situation; I think it’s helpful to get a full picture out there.
I hope your car is repaired to your satisfaction.
Well considering I had changed the oil only 1200 miles ago I hadn’t checked the dipstick recently.
I didn’t add more oil cause I already had set up the tow truck and the appointment so I just left it at that. But for a car to waste 6-7 qts of oil in 1k miles I’m glad it’s getting replaced.
