Today I sent in my vehicle to get a NEW ENGINE! Under Warranty!
Hopefully all will go well and this pestering problem will be solved. I'll keep you updated with what happens
|Did they give any inclination as to whether this is a reported large-scale issue or only isolated incidents? I'd be interested in the explanation of the inherent defect.|
|MT equipped cars are known to burn oil when driven under high rpm/low load operation (I.E cruising around in 2nd and 3rd gear all the time b/c your lazy ass wont up-shift). GM has had this issue with LS1 equipped cars, but there are also other reasons for that.|
you're exactly right STANGER.
i just got my car back last night. they had a nissan engineer check it out. i didn't get a new engine just yet. apparently the 06 rev-up is known to burn oil up until 15K miles
also, letting the revs fall @ high rpms is what's causing the oil to leave the engine.
FYI- i was running Mobil 1 Extended 5w30 for what it's worth and apparently it's very thin.
SO...i'm on an oil consumption test right now. they topped her off w/ Elf Synthetic so yeah.
now it's another waiting game. we'll see in 3K miles if i get a new engine...
|The dealer will replace with a new motor next week. There is no recall yet. The dealer mentioned, this problem also occured with the Altimas. Btw, I have to put 1/2 qt every 1000 miles.|
