Question: My 2003 G35 Infiniti is using 1 qt of oil every 1,000 miles - any solutions?

Most manufactures would consider 1qt of oil every 1,000 miles normal usage. That being said, it may be the oil control rings on the pistons are not working as they should causing oil to burn during the combustion process. It may be possible to clean the rings using a "top engine cleaner". Please talk with you local technician to see if they think this will work for you.
