Happened to me once in a long drive. My understanding is it might be clogged AC drain pipe. So if you are using AC a lot recently, this might be it.

Your car needs 7 qts. So you are basically 2 qts short, which is a lot.

Happened to me once. For me it was that I parked too much forward and destroyed my ambient temp probe.

Just take a look at the anterior part of your front passenger wheel.

I don't think there is an accumulation of additives going on in the sense of distillation.

IIRC, additives are just big chain molecules and should be burned off along with the oil they reside in.

I think Some members were confused about the mileage of the car. OP bought at 65k, put on 90k, so now it's 155k.
