Question about 2006 Cadillac CTS
HUGE OIL consumption! My check engine light came on and was blinking while my car was driving horribly. Had to pull over. Went to autozone and 6 misfires appeared. Took it to a cadillac dealer for them to tell me that it was 3 qts low on oil and they do not see a problem. It had only been 2000 miles since my last oil change. I bought this 2 months ago and has cost me $2000 already BEFORE this problem. This dealership has had my car 4 times in the last month and a half. I told them to do a full diagnostic and I would pay, and to just FIX! Well they said my cost for the diagnostic and simple oil change would be $150.. 3 Weeks go by and my engine light goes on AGAIN! I put 3 quarts of oil in. A week later I put 2. Today a put another. Took it in and they said they still could not find a problem. I park my car on concrete, there is no indication of leak. No colored fumes from exhaust. Rattly sound when accelarating. Had to get a new air bag sensor 5 hundred dollars. Front tie rods bad. Rear axle replaced but that was a recall. Speakers blew very quick and didn't even have it that loud. Can't believe there isn't a used lemon law. Worst car I've ever owed. I want my Saturn Vue back! I'm trading this in and taking my losses! Anyone know what else this oil problem could be? I see there could be a warped thread for the oil filter, but dealership should have seen this. I know some people go through a qt for 2-3k miles but mine is consuming double. I don't know what to do.
LOOK UP LEMON LAWS FOR YOUR STATE. You should NOT have to pay to fix ANY of that within the first couple of months. Afraid this answer is too late for you, but maybe will help others!

The gasket is probalby leaking. I have a 2003 version of this car and the gasket on the manifold was leaking but I never had issues with oil leaking.

Sounds like an oil seal or manifold gasket. If you don't see oil in your driveway, the oil is burning off in the engine and this would cause the misfire if it's getting to the sparkplugs. Take a flashlight and look under the hood for any small pools of oil near the sparkplugs. I'd go to a different dealership for service and I'm willing to bet they'll confirm an oil seal or gasket problem. Best of luck with your problem.
