Park car on a flat surface. I bought it used 95K miles. Even though loved ones put an extra 1500 in the car and prob. Dealership not willing to take responsibility. When I drive for 45 min for my commute and back home, it takes half a quart.
What could be the causes of it and how to solve Kindly advise. A heavier car would need more air pressue to keep the tires inflated correctly. Once the bolt and filter are back in you just need to put in the new oil. This is exactly as you experienced when you had the oil changed to a semi-synthetic, which can have as little as 1% synthetic oil in it and still legally be called a semi-synthetic oil.

There was a legend to show whichone was the radio fuse also the cig.
This will help have a clear airflow leading to an easier draining of the old oil. Rod or piston that was about to go is thought to be the problem. The exhaust has a leak up front, most likely the doughnut gasket. If not then it may take longer. Everybody here drives either a Honda, Chevy, or a new car. For most Toyotas, you can wrap an old belt around the oil filter and unscrew it by hand.
It was a blue 15-amp fuse on the far right bottom corner. For the oil filter I usually pre-fill it. They're money pits and more complicated than our parents generation of cars, if they drove.

Petroleum oils come from the ground and are a hodgepodge of molecule sizes, with some being very small, others large and everywhere in-between. So i took it to a trusted Brake Masters mechanic and he told me that it has no oil and that it needs an oil change.
