Warning goes for 5 -25 seconds ( the colder the longer ). This only happens 1000-1500 miles after oil changes. This only started happening this winter. So oil change gets rid of problem for awhile. Type of oil does not matter. I have had oil pressure checked at the oil filter and was told it was normal. While draining oil from the block it appears to have chunks in it. The engine runs great. No changes in gas mileage. No smoke from exhaust. No oil or any fluid leaks from engine. The oil level on the dip stick does not change. The only fluid level that changes in antifreeze. It does down about 16oz a month. I had them do a pressure test on cooling system but they could not see any pressure drop. They suggested changing water pump but that did not stop the antifreeze from going down. 2 auto repair centers did not know what else to do. The one said the next step is to tear engine apart to look for problem. Could Dexcool antifreeze be leaking into oil causing it to sludge? And if so from where? The oil cooler?
have the same problem?
