My Mechanic Advised Me To Top My Engine Oil. by Mrfintec: 6:53am On Sep 28, 2021
Guys I need your help. I changed my car engine oil last week, and I noticed there's a leakage at the bottom plate. this made the engine oil to constantly dropping.
i have replaced another bottom plate yesterday, but we noticed the oil is now short. the mechanic advised me to top oil, since it's just last week I changed oil.

what do you advised, should I discharge all the oil and put new one or I should buy a litre and let the mechanic top it?

Hope the car is not burning oil. How many liters do you top per 1000km?

just like the Camry, it has the error from factory. It shortens oil. It must be topped before the next service.

Top it. But you should use the same brand and type currently in it.
