I'm looking to see what people may know in this sub of normal procedure to determine oil consumption for Hyundai and what is considered normal/abnormal oil consumption.

My ranty story: I have been going to the dealer every 1000 km (I'm in Canada) after having a diagnostic done to determine if there was a reason I had very low oil levels in my car after an oil change. Nothing was found in the diagnostic. The first couple times they said I had no consumption however I had been documenting my own dipstick levels with photos every week, which showed decreasing oil levels. The third time (3000 km after my last oil change) I finally pressed the service advisor to show me how they check oil so I knew I was doing it correctly, and I was doing it correctly (I'm not mechanically inclined). I told them when I check, it appears that my oil levels are decreasing, and so they topped up my oil, and documented the amount.

I bought a 2014 GT not too long ago and it consumes a quart a week,sometimes more. No leaks and I'm not an aggressive driver. I've never owned a car that burned so much oil. I have had work trucks that burned less. I don't get it.

OK I might have an answer....

CHANGE YOUR POSITIVE CRANKCASE VALVE (pcv valve). It's located sticking out of the valve cover with a rubber hose going to it. PCV valves can get stuck open due to continue blow-by allowing to much oil to vent into the intake manifold and than the engine burns it and blows it out the tailpipe. I've seen it time and time again. It's small detail many people overlook.

Message me if you need anymore help or questions
