SOURCE: Loosing oil in 06 impala SS
First, do you see oil leaking on your driveway? Have you looked under the car and checked to see if any oil is dripping?A rear main seal will drip down the front cover plate of the transmission sometimes from the inside, appearing like a front seal leak on your transmission but the oil will not be red fluid you would expect if that were the case. I would not worry about rear main unless you see a leak there. Look your entire engine over and check for leaks everywhere. Several small leaks can add up to an overall large oil loss. Correct the larger ones first.
Generally all seals will last far longer if you change your oil frequently using a good quality lubricant. If you are loosing some oil, use one of the oils made for high mile engines. I suggest you use a mild additive like marvel oil 1pint with every oil change...it removes sludge, carbon and varnish buildup without the drawback of knocking it loose all at once, where it could plug up your oil pump screen. (it also smells good) Change oil every 3000 miles for the first three or four intervals, then consider using a good synthetic oil. Synthetics far outperform any other lubricant in every area! Avoid overheating your engine...overheating does more damage to seals than any single other item...When seals get very hot they harden up, crack and fail.
Good luck with your car!!!
