1998 Toyota T100 Q&A
1998 Toyota T100 Question: Changed oil - got 3 quarts out, put 5 back in, but there's no leak/burn, WTF?
It had been around 5,000 miles since I had it changed at a shop, and after I put the 5 quarts in that the manual suggested, it read way above full on the dipstick. My car-repair nut friend thinks I have the wrong dipstick, possibly I got a 4-cyl dipstick for a 6-cyl engine? But that doesn't explain the missing 2 quarts of oil. The truck isn't burning it, there would be a black cloud following me, and I park every night in my driveway and would spot a leak immediately, but there's none. Ideas?? - trees4
I think I would stop taking advice from your "car-nut buddy". Oil doesn't evaporate. The oil went somewhere. The truck takes 5 quarts. Evidently you didn't get all the oil out, assuming you changed the oil filter also. - PARTS GUY
Maybe the shop adjusted the level last time to the deepstick and thisway all they put in it was 3 quarts.And maybe nothing wrong with your truck. - euromech
