Brandy’s Automotive – Car Repair Questions and Answers

My engine uses about a quart of oil every 1,000 miles. Should I be concerned?

Not if you plan to sell or trade your vehicle soon. An engine that uses a quart of oil every 1,000 miles is starting to show the effects of wear. The amount of oil it is using is still acceptable, but it will gradually increase as the miles add up. When it reaches the point where it’s using a quart every 500 miles or less, it’s time for an overhaul.

I've been taking my cars to Brandy's Automotive for about 10 years now, and have recommended my friends and family to this establishment for all automotive repair needs. Tom (owner) is as honest as the day is long, even recommending that I take my car to the dealer for work that should be done under warranty instead of taking the business for himself.
