2017 GT 5.0 Oil Consumption

Postby D8DML » Wed Jun 14, 2017 8:04 am

Howdy folks,
Anyone having any issues with oil consumption? Having done only 5.5k miles from new, I noticed that the oil level was virtually non existent according to the dipstick. I threw in 1 litre and it is still levelling out at below the minimum. Seems to be a bit of a puzzle for my dealer, and I am having to drop it off for a check. I was keen to know of anyone having any similar issues out there? Cheers.

Eh, no, that would have been obvious and negated the requirement for this post! :roll:

When did you check it previously? I never had a Ford that burned oil. That much drop you would notice on the floor or in the exhaust. Unless it has been low from new.

I had to top up once from new at around 4000 miles. No further oil needed till service at 6000.
