As for checking the oil leak, there's an under-cover and I won't be able to see such slow leak unless I take the cover off. I guess we simply can't trust any jobs done by the dealer, which is very unfortunate!

    I was surprised that with less than half of the total oil capacity in the oil pan, the low oil pressure warning light didn't illuminate. Hopefully the compression test on cylinders turns out to be fine, although now I'm worried that the tech may screw up something during the compression test such as over-tighten the spark plugs *
    The cover isn't sealed thaat tight. And that would be a significant amount of oil loss in I presume a short time? You would have seen something on the ground. Sounds like an incompetent dealer to me. I agree your situation is a bit more unique. A lot of us are doing our own oil changes and know our vehicles and if they burn oil or not.

    Unfortunately, it’s everyone’s environment, though.
    Newsflash : A crankcase filled to the full mark but no higher is bad for everyone's environment !

    LOL. Couldn’t care less about the extra quart of oil and the environment.

    Glad to see it ruffled your feathers, for REAL.
