#1

I have a 2013 Subaru forester that uses one qt. Oil about every one to twelve hundred miles no smoking or leaking. Some oil around the filter drip tray no other signs of use. Engine clatters when cold.

Hi @Harrington are you concerned this is abnormal? Is there something someone can help you with?


#3

100 miles, that is a serious problem. 1200 miles, that is not great but considered OK by most manufacturers. Can you be more specific?

how many miles on this.


#4

One quart every one thousand to twelve hundred miles.
