If engine burning 2 quarts a week no oil leaks time for a over haul.check pvc valve shake it if rattle its good if not replace it. change valve seals. because if they are leaking they will cause oil to leak bt them burn with gas. also change plugs and wires.if this dont work . time for over haul.

Excessive exhaust smoke

You may have a broken ring or scored cylinder wall and piston. Have a cylinder leak down test performed to confirm this. Other causes can be a plugged crankcase ventilation system causing pressure to build in the engine, if that is the case the air cleaner box should have oil in it. The grey color of the smoke means you are burning a lot of oil.

Sputtering when accelerating

Try running a can of Seafoam through the tank or unhook the brake vaccum and stick it in the can of seafoam. It will clean the fuel system completely, but it will smoke like crazy while its working. Dont worry its just all the built up gunk burning off. However, you will have to change the spark plugs immediatly after you do this. But it most likely time any way.

2008 Silverado 5.3 liter engine is consuming a lot of oil, why?

The short answer is, if there are no external leaks, the engine has to be burning it thru the rings, crankcase vent, or valves.
You could burn a quart a week and not see any evidence until it builds up on the spark plugs over time.

My 2006 envoy denali recently started making a fluttering noise upon acceleration ? one guy told me it was a rod ? could this be? I have always changed the oil on time and with synthetic oil...last...

A rod problem is a steady knock which increases with rpm. More likely you have a plugged air filter , a plugged fuel filter or a vacuum leak, ( vote fuel filter , people never change those often enough)

stop burning up your engines. cars shouldn't use any oil, it is either being burnt, which is not good, or leaking onto the ground, which means you'll have no problem finding the problem, it is right above the puddle in your driveway
