hi, the main cause of major oil consumption is due to cylinder wall deterioration. this is caused be bad piston ring sets that tend to chip of tiny pieces of the cylinder walls over a long period of time. this will start to show in engines with high millage. this will also lead to compression loss as well if it is not fixed soon.
To fix this issue within the cylinder walls, they will have to be machined and a new set of piston rings will have to be fitted around each affected piston. this will stop the oil from leaking into the combustion chamber and it will restore the compression rate as well.

Check out this thread and take your Caddy for a couple of Wide Open Throttle runs on the Interstate. Clears out the carbon buildup on the rings that is causing oil blowby.
