You could be burning it, how many miles on the engine?

That's what I originally thought but I haven't seen any smoke and it has 142k on it ....could high mileage oil help?

95

I'll assume that you do NOT smell burning oil when you exit the car after driving it or I'm sure you would have mentioned that. Did YOU change the oil or did you have a shop do it for you? If you had a shop do it, did you check the level when you got it home from the shop?

I changed it myself and you're right I don't sell burning oil
