Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had minor issues with her since
I got her I love this car but some
things have me concerned. Not only
will the passenger seat not go back
but the head lights dim n flicker while
driving and this mornin the rear view
mirror lights n directional display went
out. I have put almost 2,000 miles on
it since I've had it and the oil n trans
fluid was changed 2,000 miles ago.
But the low oil light came on n when I
checked it she was dwn by 2 quarts
I've never had this happen unless
there was a leak so I put a box under
her to see if there was one no drips im
baffled. Plz help

Sounds like you have some electrical issues, hard to diagnose on a place like this. Check the fuse box and connection to the lights, you might have water in them. the motor might be related to the electrical issue or the motor burned out. You will have t remove the seat to check it. Also using oil like that, you are leaking or burning. How is the PCV valve? Idling rough? A good mechanic will be able to address all your concerns if you need help.
