So I purchased an 04 wrx wagon from my local dealer.
It had been traded in with just under 100,000 miles on it with a severe engine knock from a lack of oil.
The dealership assumed it was a leak caused by a loose plug.
They rebuilt the entire lower end of the engine and put it up for sale.
I purchased the car with maybe 50 miles on the new work.
I checked the oil at 600 miles and found it to be running a bit low.
Added oil and drove on. 1500 miles, checked again, again low.
Freaked out I check it less then 300 miles later. Low again.
No sign of oil on the ground, or on the block.
The dealership is doing an "oil analysis" meaning that I have to return it to the dealership every 1000 miles.
Since then I have checked the oil routinely fromt he same parking spot at the same time each morning. I am 500 miles past the oil change and barely registering L on the dipstick again.
Needless to say, they obviously did not fix the oil loss issue that the car had when it was traded in.
Sorry for the long post, just want to provide the nitty gritty details.
Any idea where this oil may be going?
