So an update about the oil consumption on my car the dealer replaced the pcv valve as instructed by chrysler the first 500 miles were fine the 2nd check at 1000 miles it had burned a qrt was topped off and the 3rd check at 1500 miles it had consumed another 1.5 qrts I have to go back another 2 times before they do anything further. What a joke

The problem with the oil consumption is actually far different than what any one on here has been told or posted in just took mine to the dealer and found out dodge knows about the problem it is actually a manufacturer problem with the engine while being assembled as the pistons are being inserted the rings are having pieces come off and as your engine runs it scores the cylinder walls causing oil to blow by so not only is our cars losing oil but we are also putting out more pollutants from the oil burning. The fix for mine they said they are going to replace the engine but I need to check the oil level constantly this sound to me like putting a band aid on a gun shot wound how am I supposed to feel safe with my 16 year old daughter driving a car that shuts off when the oil is low if this happens on a highway she could get seriously hurt or worse and all they are going to do is replace the engine as it doesn't fall into a lemon law until it haves 3 times so this is the first time at 9100 miles let's see how long this engine lasts

Hey guys, I changed my oil today and i noticed that there was not very much oil that came out at all, i am running amsoil. This is my second oil change that i did personally and last time i also noticed not very much oil, I forgot to keep checking it since i normally change it every 3k religiously since i commute for work it didnt take very long at all to get to that.

My 2014 Dart GT is going thru oil too. I complained to the dealer, who is the only one to ever service my car and they told me a quart every thousand is considered as normal, and have a nice day! Then they told me my oil pan gasket shows signs of leakage and they want to replace it under warranty. Problem with that is I park in a pristine garage have no oil drops on my floor. So I told them no. But I agree that these cars have a problem with oil consumption.

Just started noticing oil consumption in my 1.4. Sounds like I need to start charting it. Thanks for the updates.

I can't believe it......I had the same exact issue that you did. But mine is an automatic @ 48,000 miles. I replaced the engine, which I'm lucky that I found a 14 with 1,832 miles on it for 1100 bucks with a 2 year warranty. The dealership totally f'd me over. I gave them receipts as well, they still wouldn't warranty it. I went through absolute hell. They told me I had no oil in mine too, before they picked it up it had plenty of oil in it. My 3rd cylinder misfired, the electrode broke off the bottom of the spark plug and blew out the valve in the cylinder. I pursued lawyers and all that jazz but got nowhere.

I spoke to one of my friends that works at a Dodge dealership and he told me that the 1.4 engine consumes 1 qt of oil every 1000 miles. Which is asinine, the engineers that came up with this engine should probably be fired lmao. Who the hell makes a motor, knowing it goes through oil like that and not make sure that the customer is aware of it. Just never made sense to me. I've had turbo issues ever since the motor swap. I've exhausted all my options.
