I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT with the V6 engine. The last oil change was 1 week ago. My red oil light came on, and I read the dip stick and thought I was a quart low on oil.
Really it was just pressure, which is why I could hear the lifters. But I added what I thought was oil. So now, my car has 6 quarts of oil and quart of transmission fluid in it. I have driven it for a couple of miles and the sound is gone and so is the light. Given how tranny fluid helps engines with this problem, should I just leave it alone? Or if i leave if alone will it cause too much pressure and hurt a seal?
