Ok, I have a 2010 Honda Accord 4 door v6 and would typically get the oil changed on schedule with a local Jiffy Lube. Well I got a "15% oil life" light on my dashboard and didn't have enough money for a full change at the time which normally runs me $70.
So my boyfriend said just add some oil in for now until I can get the proper change, which I did. It started with 1 quart of 5w-20 (that's what the manual calls for) then I added two more quarts, totaling 3. But my light still stayed on and today my boyfriend Drove it and the oil life went down to 10%. He went to Walmart and bought 5 quart of the same brand and put the whole thing in there.
The light is still on, but even worse he said a white smoke was coming from the exhaust, the car was stalling on his way home. So I did a little research and figure it's overfilled. He went to a Walmart which is only about 2 miles away from home thank God, but now I want to get it to my Pep Boys, also only 2 miles away, before it's too late. I'm afraid to drive it. Obviously we both know nothing about car maintenance.
