Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello...welcome and thank you for using Justanswer.
There are no complains of oil consumption on this year vehicles but I would check the oil level every 1000 miles until your next oil change to see if the level stays the same .(this engine takes 7.4 qts of oil)
If you do have a problem ,like the engine burning the oil or a leak (not common on a new vehicle ) the dealer will take care of it at no charge for you.
Let me know if need any further info.
Thank you very much.
The oil gage being at middle does not mean you have a oil pressure problem and two quarts low would not make the oil pressure drop.
I would be more worried if the engine is burning oil.
Just keep you eyes on the level until the next oil change and then let the dealer take care of it if there is a problem.
Let me know.
Thank you .
Sorry... NO , two quarts low would not damage your engine but you do need to find out if they did not put enough oil or if you your engine is burnig oil.
I would keep my eyes on it for the next miles
Good luck.Thank you very much.
I have done oil changes draining less than a quart of oil from the oil pan with out the gage or oil light giving any warning.
Before the gage or the light come on steady you will get the warning when making turns or stops.
Hi there sorry for last night ,had to get some sleep.
No, the main function of the gage or oil light is to monitor the oil pressure not the oil level.
If the gage drops or the light come on ,it can be two things ...the oil is full and you lost pressure due to a mechanical problem.
Second ...you have run out of oil due to a leak or engine burned the oil.
When I said mechanical problem I meant , worn out or spun bearing or a oil pump failure.
No ,it definitely did not cause any type of damage to your engine .Thank you
