2006 Sierra with 5.3L.150,000 miles. Buring about 1.5 qts of oil every 4k miles. Running Mobil I. Should I be worried? Anything I can do? Thanks!

That is about normal.

Do you have the updated valve cover?

Sounds about right. Maybe a wee bit on the higher side, but still not alarming for the miles you have.

06 pcv valve is integrated in the valve cover and is usually the main cause of the consumption. My l33 went through about 1.5 qts every 6k miles.

Any fix to the 06 PCV issue?
