2021 Soul LX manual
Thanks. I did realise JUST before I got to the dealer to pick it up again that the person driving it the 1000 miles is me. Duh! But the text arrived saying "we will do a factory oil change then drive the car 1000 miles...." It was misfiring on #4, and the oil was 1.5 quarts low (2000 miles after a change, and I had added a quart since then anyway.Your signature says you have a 2021, I am not aware of any oil consumption campaign for the MPI engine in the gen3 that would require the 1k mile consumption test. I'll check again later but any that I've had I just pulled the plugs out and put a bore scope in the cylinders and believe me that if it's got the bad rings it is painfully obvious on the scope. 10 minutes and I could tell you if it's bad. The oil consumption check is for the GDI engines that get sticky rings from carbon. I will have to check and see if the MPI is now included in that but it wasn't before so maybe there's something new out that I didn't see yet.
I'll keep this thread updated when it goes back for its second look.
