So I found out that my '91 xlt is losing ~1.5 quarts of oil every 1,000 miles or so. What I did to fix this issue is just head back to jiffy lube for a "fluids top off".
Is this really bad?
At what point does oil loss become a problem?
How many quarts of oil does the engine hold?
I can see residual oil on the starter, so that's my best guess where the leak is coming from. I figure I'll just:
-wipe off whatever excess oil I can
-top off the fluids whenever the "check oil" light comes on
-and keep an extra quart with me at all times in case I'm too far from a fillup station.
