    Sounds as though the oil is thinning out. If the color of the oil looks like coffee with milk, there may be coolant leaking into the oil.
    If your owner's manual gives you an option of different thicknesses of oil to use, try the thicker oil. Excessive heat will thin out an oil. Check that you do not have a coolant level drop and that the engine is not running hot.
