I am writing for any advice. In April of 08 I had my oil changed at Walmart. I took it in to the local dealership 2 days ago to have oil changed again. It had been 7000 miles, oil light came on, I called and got in the next day. Mechanics say cap was off radiator and less than 1/2 qt. Of oil. Engine will have to be replaced and not covered under warranty because it wasn't changed at 3000 miles.
Questions: Does oil have to be changed at 3000 miles? I thought new engines you could go 7000 miles?
Question: Is it possible that Walmart did not change oil since they left can off radiator and it was so low?
Question: Can a car burn that much oil? (Almost all) in 7000 miles?
Question: PLEASE HELP! I don't have 3000 dollars to get a new engine on a car 2 years old! PLEASE HELP ME!
With all appreciation,
have the same problem?
