Burning Oil, 2.2L with Only 85,000 Mi.
Have searched all over the site for others with the same question and found a few that are close but not the same as what i'm experiencing.
So my '06 LS 2.2 has ~85,000mi. I am burning through about a full quart every 1,500mi, to me that's way too much. No visible leaks, don't notice any smoke out the exhaust, oil color is normal, no water noticed in oil changes.
The only engine mechanical problem I've noticed is a very rough idle upon cold starts. Car is driven an average of 20 minute, each way, commute weekdays.
I did see someone post about checking the PCV, but not sure how?
Don't have much money right now to do anything major.
My compression gage broke, but I can get a new one if that's what needs to be done.
