Re: Consuming Oil, should I be concerned?
Did you change the filter as well????
If yes did you check the oil level after running the engine, say the next day????
A new oil filter takes a fair bit of oil to fill it on a change, plus the oil pick up. If the oil level is checked after filling and before starting it will always be higher than after running the engine. From memory the manuals cover this issue if you follow all the steps.
