    Default 07 Tahoe using oil

    I have a 07 Tahoe that is using oil. I donít see itleaking anywhere and it doesnít look like it is burning it. It has almost80,000 on it and I just added a second quart with about 25% left on the oilchange (according to the computer). Any info on this would be appreciated.

    I have only had the Tahoe for about a year and I have not kept track of the mileage for oil changes I have just changed it when the computer says the oil life is down to 10%. I have always changed the oil at 3,000 miles on other vehicles I have owned and I think from now on I am going to start doing that on the Tahoe.
    The engine is a 5.3 L and it has done it ever since I have owned it.
    Normally I only have to add a quart between oil changes but on this last oil change it made a trip form Indiana to Florida.

    Are you planning to contact your local dealer? I can also look into this with your VIN. Please feel free to keep me posted either way. Thank you.

    I wasn’t planing on talking to the dealer I was just curious if it was a common problem and if maybe there was an easy fix to it.
    The VIN number is 1GNFK13067R183553.
