70,000 miles low oil light comes on, just had my oil changed 1000 mile before. Took in to GM dealer they told me oil pan gasket was bad. Repaired. 1000 miles later low oil light came on, took back to dealership. No issue found. Truck just burning oil! the truck keeps using 2 to 3 quarts of oil dealer will not do anything. Call GM they advise to go to dealership and do oil consumption test. Did this taking it back to dealership every 500 miles to have oil checked. Used 2-1/2 quarts of oil between oil changes. Told dealer this was not normal to fix my truck. Dealer advised GM would not fix my truck because this is normal usage. It is now using about 3 quarts between oil changes. GM told me to go back to dealer to have another oil consumption test done. We see they hide problems well, as was the last recall. How about getting them to address or fix this issue. They are still advertising the afm engine, and raising the normal oil usage from a quart to 2 quarts. As anyone can see with the latest recalls they will hide or not acknowledge the problem. They are worried about their bottom line. Not the customer. See how many changes and service bulletins have been issued due to this oil consumption issue. My GM case # 71-1118075589. They tend to close these case numbers quick. And then they assign you another case number each time you call customer service to hide the fact they have problems. When dealer does oil consumption I find they do not show anything back to GM or attach a record to your VIN #. last couple of time I spoke to GM customer service, they had no record of me ever having an oil consumption problem. And my last case number did not show up in their system. All you have to do to see the problem is "google " GM 5.3 oil consumption problem. You will find more than a few complaints.
