Here's the deal, 3 weeks ago had the oil changed. Drove about 2000 miles. Get in the other day, started up fine, but I knew it was about to happen, at the red light i could feel the engine bogging down. Giving it gas, sounded like it was dying or floooded.
Made the right decision to pull off road and not get on freeway. As soon as I pulled off, truck shuttered then shut off. FIrst thing I did was check the oil. It wasn't even on the dip stick. Put 3 1/2 quarts in. Drove 1/2 mile to the place I got it changed, Jiffy Lube, and they said the filter was loose and it was known to shake loose in diesels. OKay so, i lost 3 quarts, or burned it all up.
HAd to drive another 300 miles that day. She ran great!!! Sat over night, go out to start this morning, down 2 quarts!!! No oil on ground.
Put the oil in, drove to work fine. I feel like something is wrong, oil pressure pretty good. One time I slowed down tonight it dropped a little bit but not in the danger zone.
Also, while this was happening all of the sudden FUEL FILTER, light violently blinking. I just changed it at the oil change. Any ideas?
Please tell me she is not dying!!
Did jiffy lube screw up my motor? WHy is it burning so much? And the loose filter?
Please help, very depressed and scared.
