check the pcv valve, it will **** up oil and burn it if bad, and also check the hose to pcv valve. depending on vehicle the price for a pcv valve is very reasonable. pull out pcv valve and shake it ! if it rattles its ok. but if not replace it. have a good day !! ( positive crankcase ventilation ).

I have a 2001 Chevy Impala 3.8 V-6 and it is using a quart of oil every 800 miles or so. The PCV valve has been replaced, but I fear that the next service visit will result in a much bigger bill. Help...

If you have no leaks, it will be an internal issue that can only be expensive-valve seals (smokes when cold or at start up) or rings (smokes on acceleration, eventually may have issues with catalytic converter)-You are probably using 5W-30 weight oil, consider going to 10W-40 or throw in an occasional bottle of 'stop smoke' additive-while not great, 800 miles per quart is not a disaster (yet) and as long as you change your oil at set intervals (3000 miles or less), don't overheat it, and don't beat on it when cold, it should last many, many more miles.

2001 5 series spark plugs are getting flooded with oil making my engine misfire why and what can i do too fix it

Well, the key question is how much oil are you consuming...Quart in 600 miles or more is considered normal, but I prefer 1 quart in 2500 miles...

If high oil consumption, consider hotter plugs, and decide if engine work makes sense. If only a cylinder or two, try hotter plugs in those cylinders

If no oil consumption, look to weak spark, damaged wires, etc.

Positive ventilation crank case valve location

I have one of these cars too, also 3.5. I purchased with 34K and has used a quart of oil every 1000 miles since then. It has no leaks or smoke or any other signs of oil consumption. So much research, nobody knows why these engines do this, some have gone as far as contacting Chrysler just for them to say, " that's normal". But here is the diagram for the PCV:

Lexus RX300 with 95000 miles uses a quart of oil every 400 miles

My 2001 was having the same issue. I replaced the PCV valve and it fixed the problem. Total Cost 5.00. It is easily accesable but you may have difficulty finding it. It is located Left Rear Top of engine (Passenger side). Its brass and it screws in. I went online at my library and found diagram at this location.

High oil consumption 2001silverado 4wd, 4 door 6.0

Every manufacturer has a guideline.  But a quart every 1,000 miles seems higher then necessary.  Try the easy steps first. 1.  Check the PCV valve if clogged will caused pressure in crankcase and oil burning. 2. Remove spark plugs and perform visual inspection.  IF electrode is covered in gook(technical terms, sorry), then oil is leaking into that cylinder.  Most likely cause would be faulty valve stem seals. 3. Worse case scenario, engine oil rings are leaking.  If all else is good.  Perform compression test of each cylinder recording measurement, then add two small squirt of engine oil into each cylinder as you perform a second round, complete both dry then wet compression test on each cylinder before proceeding.  IF any cylinder shows a more significant increase in compression then it would indicate that cylinder's oil rings are faulty.  This is a major repair.  Keep me posted
