Hey all, so I just spoke with my mechanic again and we determined i'm burning through about 1/2q of oil every 1,800 or 2,000 miles. He said normall consumption for a newer engine would be about 1/4q for that same mileage but told me I am definitely still burning more oil than normal even for a higher mileage vehicle. I'm going to switch over to 10W-30 for my next oil change but assuming this is not as big an issue as I had previously thought.
After the car has 200K miles on it and it needs a quart every 1000 miles that's worth dealing with. The value of the car is almost nothing as a trade in or selling outright, just drive it until it costs more to fix it than it's worth then donate it to a local charity.
