My car has taken an additional 2 quarts of oil since my last oil change. I have driven 2500 miles since the change. I do not hear any clicking from the engine just high usage. There is no leaking. I check the oil each week and have been adding about 8 oz. each time it shows lower. I am not a mechanic so do not know the technical stuff.

    THIS IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR HIGHER MILEAGE VEH. YOU MAY NEED OTHER THINGS TO STOP THIS SO DON'T WASTE $ ON GUESSING HAVE A LEAK DOWN TEST DONE TO ENSURE YOU KNOW WHAT WORK YOU NEED. THIS CAN JUST BE A NORMAL USEAGE ISSUE
