Question type: General

took truck in several months ago for oil change & loss of oil. oil light had
come on & when dip stick checked , no oil was registering. Had to add 3
quarts of oil. dealership could not find a leak. states possibility that they did
not calibrate

1000 miles or just wait & see if light comes on again. well time for another
oil change & light comes on. check dip stick & truck is a quart & 1/2 low on
oil. added a quart & 1/2.

If there is no leak the engine is burning the oil. Engine wear is a possibility but make sure the PCV is working properly. If the dealer left your engine 3 quarts low there might be engine damage. Clearly you need to check your oil weekly and top it off. Keep a record of how much you add and the miles on the odometer when you add the oil.
