ENGINE

11/30/2018 - GIBSONIA, PA
WE WERE TRAVELING ON THE INTERSTATE AFTER ABOUT A 7 HOUR DRIVE AND THE LOW OIL PRESSURE WARNING DISPLAY WAS FLICKERING ON AND OFF BUT NEVER STAYED ON CONSISTENTLY. I PULLED OVER AND THERE WAS NO OIL IN THE ENGINE, I MEAN IT WAS BONE DRY. I'M TRULY SURPRISED THE CAR WAS STILL OPERATING. WHEN OIL WAS PUT IN, IT POURED, AND I MEAN POURED, RIGHT BACK OUT. WE HAD TO BE TOWED BECAUSE THE CAR COULD NOT BE DRIVEN. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE ENGINE OIL COOLER LINE WAS LEAKING.
