Thanks for the tips.

I went ahead and had the oil changed. If any of you have followed my yappin, you know this car has been a issue from day 1 (6months ago) But for the MPG’* and size, and im not little guy, you can’t beat it. Im not really into the 300’* and Crown vic’* and here Park Aves are really hard to come by. I’ll up date ya in a couple of weeks.

Hello All. This is an update on this oil issue. I checked it today and im down TWO quarts! I did drive it and placed cardboard under it and found nothing, no leaks, no burn smells or evidence of anything. I will be calling the dealer tomorrow. 70k on the clock. I love my GM products but this makes no sense.

I just called the deal. The service Advisor says to come in and let hime replace the PCV valve. Does that sound right? He says it could be clogged.

Yes, oil can get threw the PCV, it'* a less then $10 part and takes about 10 mins to change.
