Is something wrong with my engine ?

I have a 2012 GT 5.0 with 26500 miles between oil changes I have to add 1/4 of oil. It is this correct or is there something wrong in the engine. (no leaking oil and there are no signs of oil in the water of the engine.

It's just eating it through the pcv. Get an air/oil separator and you will catch it before it goes back into the intake. My catch can catches about that much oil in an oil change. I periodically drain it back into the motor so the level stays correct

A 1/4 quart every 3-5000 miles is acceptable. No worries Mate.

Thanks for the reply, is that common for this engine?

Anybody else have this issue?

Thanks in advanced.

Sorry about the misspell, I have to add a quart of oil between oil changes, so every 5k miles I add a quart of oil.

As long as your tail pipes don't have black soot on them your not really burning enough to worry,pull a plug and look for oil, most likely pcv,oil and vapor could be it.

Not 1 quart. 1/4 quart


IG @Oxford5pointoh

I slapped on a jlt oil separator about a month ago. After less than 2k miles it had already caught a good bit of oil.
