Excess oil comsumption due to valve guide issues on Dodge Dynasty

Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Replacing the valve guides with an updated version should fix the problem.
