1994 Mercury Cougar Q&A

1994 Mercury Cougar Question: I also put 3 quarts of motor oil in the car about three weeks ago

The oil was very low. Should I be out of oil again because I am hearing a high pitched sound coming from the motor that I ussually hear when it's out of oil. What could the problem be? The last time it was low on oil, I didn't hear that sound. -
Answer 1
Maybe you could have a shop check it , before the engine locks up. 'Acceptable' oil consumption on older (high mileage) engines is about a quart every 3-4000 miles , by many standards. You appear to have gone well past that limit. -
Answer 2
you are either using oil or you have a bad oil leak ,either way have your mech ck it out -
