View Full Version : Oil?

08-24-06, 01:49 AM
I know LS6 burns oil and I'm fine with that but If I go 5-6000 miles and use about 1+ quart extra is that in the OK range. And at what rate of consumption should I get concerned?

I checked my oil this morning, it has been slightly over 7,000 miles since my last oil change, and the oil is down about 1/4 quart. I would not call this burning oil. The 2001 LS6's, I think, burned oil like crazy, after a track day the entire rearend of a yellow Corvette was black with oil. The LS6 in the V's should not burn oil.

My PCV valve has come out on its own more than once and let oil spill out..I could smell it when I got out of the car though.

The LS6's in the 01 Z06 did have an oil consumption problem. It was pretty well fixed in the 02 and later engines so I would think that you have a problem that should be checked out.
