vehicle is consuming approximately a quart of oil for every 1,000 miles that it's driven. Based on your knowledge of lubrication systems, what does this condition indicate?

To me that is slightly excessive oil consumption but not real bad. Many manufacturers consider oil consumption of 1 qt. per 1,000 miles or less to be normal and not qualifying for repair under warranty. I am curious to how many miles you have on your vehicle?

Is it leaking or wet in the engine compartment? Blue exhaust?
