Lately my 1998 wagon has been using a 'substantial' amount of oil. It looks like some moisture is present in the crankcase, but it is not coming from anywhere in the cooling system since the levels there are constant. The engine only has about 79,500 miles on it, has had the timing chain replaced, and all normal maintenance kept up.
I only noticed the oil usage since the indicator light flickered when I was coming to stops or turning. My last oil change was less than 3,000 miles ago. My mileage is still very good and there are no other apparent problems. It looks as if this problem started after my last oil change. There are no obvious leaks that I have seen. I have replaced the PCV valve per the suggestion of a Saturn mechanic, but that has not solved the trouble.
Any suggestions/knowledge of the same trouble? If so, what, if anything, was the solution?
