New guy from Los Angeles!

HI guys just wanted to introduce myself. Name is Al. Been doing on line research about JK's. Currently own a 2007 Jeep Rubicon with the oil burning 3.8L Trying to see if i can do something about this engine. Burning through about 2 quarts in between oil changes (5000 mile). Hopefully i can learn and contribute... Thanks for the ADD!

welcome to JKOwners!

You should move to a more viscous oil weight; 5w-30 & some run 10w in the 3.8.

Most often the cylinder rings are fouled ...the oil will find its way into the combustion & vaporize ...
Before going immediately to that as probable cause , have you replaced the CCV & cleaned the top end well? There are great threads on here about these issues.
