Oil consumption in my 2006 rav4/limited/I4
I am a newbie to here - i have a 2006 Rav4 - i love it but within the past year noticed oil consumption - to my surprise 1 day - i had a dry oil stick and had to put 3 quarts in it. This was within the 3,000 mile oil change! I did the 1,000 test 3 times with the toyota dealer and per the owners manual it is withing the normal limits. I went 1,000 miles and added a quart. I do reg maintenance with all my vehicles. Any ideas? I just had inspection and emission done and it passed but the oily was dirty. The service guy who I know well said that toyota care wont pay to take the engine apart to find where the oil is going because there is no obvious leaks or smoke. thanks if you can help
