My Z06 goes in Monday for an oil consumption check. The service manager told me they will put dye in the system and seal the system.
He says that they can tell where the oil is going with this dye. I have not heard anyone mention this yet. Is this BS or legit?
My car has 2000 miles on it and has burned about 2 quarts. Not as bad as some who have posted but still more than I care to be burning. In addition to the consumption, my oil is very dark. I hear people on this board talk about how hard it is to read the oil level. As dark as my oil is it's pretty easy to read.
I have a couple of questions. Should my oil be discolored after 2000 miles?
Does everyone who is having an oil consumption problem have dark oil or am I one of the few lucky ones?
How low is the oil level for the dic to issue a warning? Or does that vary from car to car?
I am pretty pissed about this whole situation. I love my Z but I don't think 50k dollar cars should be doing this. I would understand if this were an isolated incedent, but it's not.
Any info on the discoloration would be appreciated.
