Not really a way to check it, unless you have a technician handy, or want to remove this component and give it the old shake test, but the first and simplest way to ensure the most common problem of oil consumption is taken care of is to replace the PCV Valve. (Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve) Check out this video of how simple it is to do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guVbl5UfvMk
