My '03 G35 is using a quart of oil every 1,000 miles - it is not leaking oil anywhere that's visible. Anyone have this problem - and how did you solve it?

    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.
