Question about GMC Cars & Trucks
How much oil is it using ?
Some newer engines go thru a quart pretty quick.
But that said, there are only about 3ways to lose oil - a leak, burning it or someone draining it.

Normal oil consumption for a car is about 1 quart per 3,000miles. If you can calculate how much of a quart low you are per oil change you will be able to tell whether your oil consumption is excessive or not.

Check if you have a PCV
valve malfunction, if you have a 2.3L

It was on warenty,when Mazda dealer replace the engine they told me the PVC valve was the problem.

OK, does it appear that the oil pressure sensor is leaking through the plastic to metal seam (on the sensor itself)?
Have had an oil pressure sending unit go bad and leak on a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais that needed to be replaced.

SOURCE: burning too much oil
Actually, AAA says that if you lose or burn 1 quart of oil per 1000 mi. of travel, this is normal.
Oil can pass by the rings and burn off in even moderately used engines.
Hope this clarifies things.
