Re: 2006 Altima - low oil

said by Juggernaut:

Just a suggestion, change/ check the PCV valve, and see if it makes a difference. 2 quarts in 3K is huge.

I really don't think 1500 to a quart is that bad after 140k miles.
My wife's 2000 LeSabre with 135k miles on it does 1500 miles to a quart and I would never give it a second thought. The car only did around 2k miles to a quart when it was new.
My 2002 century with 105k miles on it does about 2500 miles to a quart of oil and has never changed from new.

My brother in law's 2007 Caddy with 50k miles on it only does about 1000 miles to a quart and the dealer tells him that is common.

Really? I use half a liter in 3K in my '95 3.8L at the most.

"common" to use a quart of oil in a thousand miles?

My 3.0 liter Ford V6 Aerostar with 215,000 miles and a rear main seal leak only uses a quart in 3000 miles.

My 3.0 liter Avalon 1MZFE V6 with 330,000 miles on it uses about a half pint in 3,000 miles. I use WalMart oil and Fram filters for both vehicles.

If a using a quart every 1000 miles is 'common" for a Cadillac, then I'm never going to consider one.
