Default Oil Disappear

Morning folks,
I have an 08 Cruiser, non-turbo, that has been losing oil on the dipstick check. No visible leaks I can find, no oil from being parked in driveway,
68k original miles. Always syn oil at 3000m
Adding 1/2 quart 3/4 weeks.....could it be pcv related? Ordered the valve and hose just in case it is. Thanks for your input

Of course that's a possibility. Take a close look around the valve cover and oil pressure switch too.

Is your engine compartment severly hot after driving it to several places? If so is ur CAT an aftermarket CAT?

Not likely. The more usual suspects are worn valve guides &/or piston rings.
Do the plugs show any signs of oil or residue?

I agree with the valve guides with the CAT overheating the engine head damaging the valve guides. Bad design from Chrysler.

Both of my Pt Cruisers have the same problem since I
bought them nine years ago. Try using regular engine oil instead of Mobile one synthetic oil.
