#1 of 1 Fact for all of you looking at finding out why your Dodge is loosing oil
Dec 13, 2012 (2:08 pm)
Here is a real interesting fact for all of you looking at finding out why your Dodge vehicle is loosing so much oil.
Dodge will tell you this... word for word...
You have asked for a letter about the oil consumption on your vehicle. Industry Standards for Normal Engine Oil Consumption:
1) Mileage below 50,000
Normal oil consumption is one quart for each 1,000 miles driven
2) Mileage above 50,000
Normal oil consumption is one quart for each 750 miles driven
I have just spent the last few weeks finding out that there is NO Industry Standards for this type of thing at all. Dodge can not even show me which organization published this so called "Industry Standards". If you ask they will show you were it is posted on the web under a "customer connect" web site that Dodge put up there to quite down some customers. But that is Dodge's own mask to cover up one lie with another.
Go head and ask them where to find the "Industry Standards"..... have fun....
Don't let them point you here to this web link.. this is their web page... interesting... they don't put their "Dodge" name anywhere to be seen so they don't have any obligations.
My belief is that they know the engines are messed up, and only fix the ones that are real bad, it would cost them too much to be honest.
