Default 2013 S60 Consuming Oil

I received an error message the other day as I was driving down the ramps of a parking structure in my 2013 S60. "NO OIL PRESSURE. PLEASE STOP SAFELY" came on for about 1 second and went off. I contacted my dealer who suggested checking the oil. I'm right at the 5000 mile mark since my last service. After letting the car sit for an hour, the dipstick didn't register anything. I added 2 quarts to get levels back up. The bad thing is that I added a quart and a half about a month ago (about 1000 miles) when I last checked the oil. I don't see any oil leaking anywhere on my driveway or parking spot at work.

I'm taking it in for diagnosis this week. Does it seem reasonable that the Piston O-rings would be going? I'm worried that it might cost $7-9k to fix (per the dealer). The car only has 50,000 miles and is 10 months out or warranty. Thanks!

Yes, it's unreasonable to be consuming so much oil on a 4-5 year old engine with 50K miles. Please do post what you find.

Is your 2013 S60 still under warranty.

The warranty expired in the beginning of April at about 42k miles. I noticed something at about 49k, and added 2qts and then again as it just passed 50k miles and added 3 qts.

You should be able to get some good will from the dealer that serviced your Volvo while it was under warranty.

I suggest you take it to your dealer and have them check and document the oil consumption, and go from there.

The dealer inspected the car and did not find a problem with the PCV. They said they updated the software to calibrate things, topped off the oil and told me to drive for awhile and monitor consumption. They told me to not add any oil if it gets far enough that the NO OIL PRESSURE light comes on again, just stop driving and have it towed to Volvo. Then they will dig deeper into the engine. Is this a decent course of action?

I'd say it's the right course of action.

What brand oil are you using when you change the oil/top off?

I had to use Mobil 1 5W30 Synthetic when I had to add more. The dealer topped off, so i'm assuming they used Castrol 5w3o which is recommended in the manual.

Mobile 1 does not meet ACEA A5/B5 oil specifications. See page 346 of your Owners Manual.

Castrol meets the specs.
