Re: 2014 diesel Sorento losing oil

So.... just in case anyone was still interested.... I finally got back the vehicle a few weeks ago. Getting the parts was the main issue. The ring-sets for the pistons were particularly difficult. Anyways, some damage was done. Apparently a fouled scraper ring (did I get that right?) on one piston c...

Re: 2014 diesel Sorento losing oil

Just because the oil pressure light stays off doesn't mean that all the components in an engine that need oil are getting. If that light comes on when the engine is running it is usually too late. It needed oil way before that light came on. Okay... I hear you. Yes, I get that. @adnj @kamakazi: Tha...

Re: 2014 diesel Sorento losing oil

If there is no leak and you are loosing oil it is either being burnt or being pushed into the cooling system. Blue smoke indicates oil being burned. - Yup If the oil light came on while the engine is running and the oil level is at full, you either have a faulty oil pressure sensor system (wire, se...

Re: 2014 diesel Sorento losing oil

Errr.... maybe I did not explain it properly - it was only the day it shutdown for that an oil light came on and oil had to be added ...and serviced every 10,000 km.
You're right though, something doesn't add up.
Leaving it parked up for now; until I can get some more time to look into it.

One dealer told me that they're a Pirelli product.
I heard Pirelli was bought over by the chinese, but can't find a link between them and Kingrun tyres.

Thinking about a Ranger. Can anyone tell me what type pf security features come with the Ranger? I know that their keys (besides the cut) are unique to each vehicle; but does it come with an alarm/immobilizer? Also can a Black Jack be fitted onto it or is an additional alarm still required?
