Van used 2.5 quarts of oil in 1200miles no sign of oil burning or blue smoke at tail pipe. oil light comes on frequently 2004 dodge caravan

If there is no sign of oil consumption, then you have a leak some where. Un-noticed leaks are usually found at the rear main seal and leak as you are driving. If you crawl under the vehicle and closely inspect the area where the engine block meets the transmission you may find evidence of an oil leak.

3.8 grand caravan 100000 miles. Uses 1 qt every 1500. 5-20 as suggested by manufacturer. Is this excessive?

I would say YES......Try buying a can of RESTORE. They make it in 4 cyl,6 cyl ,and 8 cyl . Each can is a different size. I have used this product ,and it hlpes. doesnt FIX,just addresses problem.Slows CONSUMPTION greatly.

A wear area on yoru vehicle is valve stem seals, when they go, oil is actually pumped out...

Also, consider a high mileage blend oil, like casteroil. I am not into mechaninc in a can, but this stuff lowers consumption and is semi synthetic...

You can reaseal the valve stems, but I wonder about guide looseness, and fairly rapid seal failure again...Still, you can get it going and sell the vehicle....
