Question about 2005 Chrysler 300
Is this normal???? It has 29,000 miles on it.
It is not normal for a car with 29,000 miles on it to consume this amount of oil in 10,000 miles. We usually change our oil between 3 and 5 thousand miles and thus may not notice small amounts consumed but certainly not 1-2 quarts. It is more likely that you are leaking oil, but if it is burning it, that is a real problem. If the car was pre-owned do a CARFAX. If it was wrecked, find out was was done. If the odometer is correct, this car needs to be inspected by a professional. I can tell you to look for unburned oil in the tailpipe, smoking exhuast, leaks from the oil pan and drain. Change the oil and filter and closely monitor the level.

I suspect you need to do a few things here,
1.) Replace your PCV valve, cheap part and will eliminate to chances of sucking oil into the intake.
2.) Every oil change, swap a quart of motor oil for a quart of Marvel Mystery oil, this will loosen up your oil rings on the pistons incase one is stuck and help flush the hydraulic lifters to improve performance and stabilize the oil. It also reduces wear and tear on the friction parts when starting after sitting for long periods of time. (Great Stuff)
3.) Oil doesn't just need to be changed because of miles the engine runs, it breaks down over time and will be consumed by the engine during operation. I would say changing the oil 2 times a year, like every 6 months should help.
Thanks for your quick reply!
