Here's the deal About a year ago my wife sold he 2K eldo to her sister.
About 5K after the transaction the car started to use oil. About 1&1/2
quarts every 1,500 miles Service manager at the local caddy place claims
that is acceptable, I'm not buying it. To take it a bit further that's 3
quarts gone between oil changes.Car has a extended warranty but runs out in
about 6 months. Anybody know somebody who works at caddy service that might
be able to get there hands on one of those memo's or tsb's?
It's my feeling that there is a known problem with the northstar and caddy
is trying to wait her out.
Damn, caddy dealers are worse that Dodge dealers with the "normal or
I'd HAVE to ask that service manager why GM designed it to use a quart of oil
every 1,000 miles...
you might also ask at
lot of knowledgeable GM folks hang out there..
Please remove splinters before emailing
Thanks bro. I've tossed it around in a gm group, have to see who comes up
with what. I'm of a mind to tell her to extend the oil change to 5K and let
gm come and pick up the pieces. Of course in the owner's manual they say to
check the oil when you get gas.
