    Sadly now demodded :(

    I habitually check the oil level every time I fill up. My 98 doesn't use much (at 179,xxx miles) while my 02 uses about 1 qt every 3k miles (it has only 45,xxx on it).

    Best bet is to check oil level frequently.

    ok from the GM dealer.... they said yes there was a bulletin out on my car saying it has an oil consumption problem... he said it could possibly be lowered by replacing the valley cover or the piston rings...

    neither are things i want to hear.....

    so i really do not know what to do in this situation.... i dont plan on having the car in 4 years (once i'm out of college, i will hopefully have some form of a corvette) and so idk if its worth me paying $2k+ to fix this oil problem....

    any thoughts??

    what do you guys do... just add oil then?

    Yup, agreed both posts. My 6er is relatively low mileage too and I check it often, especially before long cruises or any descently long trips. Such as to my shop is near the 60 mi range one way
