Can't use it like that
Have to check Manufacture Bulletins
You got cylinder ring or valve issues
Those inline 5 cylinder motors has head problems
Google that & see what you can find
You could try a dealer just for the info,but I doubt
they would be honest with you

SOURCE: 2004 Buick Lesabre uses quart of oil in 3K miles. Is this normal?

No it's not have your engine check for oil leaks, also have then do a wet and dry cylinder compression test this will let you know if you are burning oil, also have them check the spark plug's.Hope this was helpful.

SOURCE: 2000 buick lesabre has 64000 miles and uses a

According to GM 1 quart per 1,500 miles is an acceptable oil consumption tolerance. 1 quart in 3k isn't bad.

I've had several gm 3.1 and 3.4 liters that have had there oil consumption issues remedied after the lower intake gaskets where replaced due to coolant leaking.

There are a couple of common problems that can cause oil consumption. Valve seals, bad rings, and PCV valves.

Valves seals would require a valve job which would requirethe removal of the heads. Rings would require a motor rebuild. Both of these are expensive options and oil is still pretty cheap.

Replacing the PCV valve might help. On the 3.8 it will be under the MAP sensor on the passenger side of the intake plenum.

As for as the intake gaskets, its a possibility but I don't have any hard evidence this could be the problem on a 3.8. Eventually the gaskets will start to leak oil. If you decide to replace them at that point I guess you will find out. I wouldn't do it on a hunch, its not a cheap repair.

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. http://content.chiltonsonline.com/Repair/PrintView.aspx.

I have a 2002 chevy prizm .it uses a quart of oil a week but it does not leak any at all. and the #1 plug keeps fouls out in a month or two. can some one please help me.


Usually if the plug is getting fouled with oil, the leak is rings or valve guides.
Either way the engine would need to be taken apart to fix.

Low idle on chevy colorado


The best thing to do is run a trouble code check on it.
Other than that check for a vaccum leak, the EGR valve, or the idle air control valve.

Excessive oil use


the time it takes to use one quart is not the figure I need, how many miles does three weeks represent? 1000 miles per quart is ok, less and you will need new rings in most cases, which of course means an engine overhaul.

Check the Seal around the Oil Pan Drain Plug. If this Seal is Missing or Warped it will slowly leak oil.
