Hi guys. Ever since I got my car, I noticed that I was losing a little bit of oil every once in a while. Not sure where the loss was coming from, but I was talking to a guy today and according to him a lot of GTOs use oil and GM never solved the problem. Is this true? What do you think?
exactly. i opened the throttle blade and pointed a flashlight inside mine and the entire thing was coated. its coming from the pcv hose connected to the throttle body. i installed a catch can recently and hopefully it makes a diffrence.

1 quart every 2k miles is considered normal. Easy way to tell is change the oil fill to the top of the hatch marks. After 2k mile it is at the very bottom of the hatch marks that is 1qt
2+ between oil changes (assuming one waits 5,000 miles to change the oil) should not be considered normal . I've had 3 LS2s, current is a stock a4 and does not burn a drop. Had a cammed m6 that burnt about a quart between changes and also had a cam/maggie/etc m6 that maybe burned half a quart between changes. Yes i know have had a lot of goats...
