Actually, AAA says that if you lose or burn 1 quart of oil per 1000 mi. of travel, this is normal.

Oil can pass by the rings and burn off in even moderately used engines.

Hope this clarifies things.

Why don't air blow?


If you smell something burning, not a good sign. I would investigate ASAP, to prevent a potential fire hazard. You could have wires shorting out, grounding out, whatever. DO NOT look at replacing the fuse or relay until you determine the cause of the burning smell.

'01 Durango R/T slight oil consumption. 1/4 - 1/2 Qt a month. about every 500-1000miles. Is this normal is signs that gaskets need replaced. If so what gaskets?


Anything over 1 quart in 1000 miles might be considered excessive. It probably is not gaskets unless there is a leak. If there is a leak there might be a puddle of oil on the ground where you park it. If there is a puddle or drips of oil look at valve cover gaskets, oil pan gaskets, crankshaft seals , etc.

The engine lost power and oil


If the oil is disappearing with no visible stains on the ground, there are a couple possibilities. One is that it's leaking out under the car while driving, and blowing out along the bottom of the car and on the road as you drive. Look at the bottom of the car and see if you see streaks of oil.

If not, and you're down on power, it's possible that you have a head gasket leak that is allowing oil to be burned in the combustion chambers. Do you have visible blue smoke from the tailpipes, especially when revving the engine? Blue smoke is a telltale sign of an engine burning oil.

How quickly are you losing oil? Can you top it off and then check the dipstick regularly to see how quickly (mileage-wise) you're losing it?
