my dodge magnum 3.5 high output has 113k miles on it. and for some time it is consuming a quart of oil about every 1000 miles. never had a new car that used oil like that. it doesn't leak or smoke. can anyone help me figure this out ?
one dodge mechanic said this is normal. any other info ?
Industry Standards for Normal Engine Oil Consumption:
Mileage below 50,000 miles / 80,000 kilometers: Normal oil consumption is one quart for each 1,000 miles driven / one litre for every 1600 km's driven.
Mileage above 50,000 miles / 80,000 kilometers: Normal oil consumption is one quart for each 750 miles driven / one litre for every 1200 km's driven.
Oil consumption can vary, in each vehicle, due to many different circumstances. Some of the following are examples under which oil consumption may increase on a vehicle:
In order for excessive oil consumption to be determined, a supervised oil consumption test must be performed by the dealership, and an evaluation made.
