Oil consumption

Hi everyone, I'm new here & my name is Mike. I recently purchased a new 2015 Tundra SR5 with the 5.7 engine with a 189 original miles on it(I guess from test drives). It now has only 4,600. This morning I turned it on to warm up & it turned itself off. I noticed that the engine had started sounding like a deisel the last couple of days but soon went away during warm up period and didn't think much of it until this morning. I checked the oil and the leading edge oil mark was just slightly below halfway between the 2 dots. Down at least a quart as this is definitely not normal as I've owned my share of new vehicles. I'm taking it back to the dealer tomorrow and having them thoroughly check this out. My first scheduled maintainable isn't until Febuary! Any advise? I haven't even got my license plates yet & I'm looking at serious oil consumption problems? Should I request a new engine? I really love this truck. Thanks in advance for any help

Welcome to the Forum from The San Diego Bay Area !
I posted a blurb here concerning excessive oil consumption and what the owner went through to get some satisfaction from the manufacturer of the vehicle and it was promptly taken down because the vehicle was a Honda and not a Toyota. If I could find that link again I would gladly forward it to you ~ it could be of some assistance here.

I would be more concerned with "it shut itself off." The oil level might be fine. I would think that especially after just being run, some would still be in the motor and not show on the stick.

Welcome from VA. I don't know how long you waited after engine shutdown to check oil level, but I give it a bit longer than the 5 minutes recommended in the manual. I usually will wait a good 10 to 15 minutes and check it. That gives the oil time to drain back into the oil pan.

Yes good advice, wait till oil is able to drain back from cylinder heads. These engines have huge area under valve covers so lots of oil up there.

a new engine needs time for break in and some oil usage is normal. the dealership is most likely going to tell you that some oil consumption between oil changes is normal. I have 9k on my 2014 and sometimes I see a slight blue puff of smoke from the exhaust. no engine is 100% oil, air and fuel tight that's why the oil gets dirty, combustion gets past the rings. by all means if you feel there maybe something wrong get it checked out, better safe than sorry. you sound like a new parent, but it's ok we all love to take of our baby.

I would be concerned why it sounded like a diesel and it turn off and change your oil at 5k and it was probably a little low from the get go.

The diesel sound when the engine cold is normal with the 5.7. Others have had concerns about this also. My 2013 5.7 is the exact same way and my oil is full. As soon as the temp gauge comes up a little the noise is gone. And if your in between the two lines on the dip stick that is operating range. But if you checked it right after you shut it off chances are if you would have given it five more minutes the level would have been close to the top line.

Welcome. The shutoff is concerning. Being a quart down shouldn't be a long-term problem. Hopefully your dealer can get it sorted out.

I agree this engine noise/knock is normal or harmless and is not causing any damage (I hope) I read somewhere, maybe on this forum, that it maybe the air injection system and timing causing this sound. That being said It makes our trucks sound like there is something wrong, poorly made and it's annoying at drive throughs. Also try telling the person who may be buying our trucks when we are ready to sell them, that it's a normal noise that sounds like a rod knock, piston slap or wrist pin noise, etc. It surely doesn't help increase the resell value.

id agree with a few others.. the 5.7's seem to be a "loose motor" and have what sounds like rod knock on startup when its semi cold ish.. I always start my tuck and let it run for 2-3 min before driving off... it does sound horrible if you just get in and drive off...

as for the other stuff id say I hope the dealership does good job looking or diagnosing whatever issue you may have
