Attention all owners who are burning oil.

So my car used to burn about 4 litres of oil per 5000kms oil changes. I decided to check my pcv valve. It was stuck. So I changed the pcv valve out and I only burned 1 litre of oil so far and I'm at 20 % of the oil change left. I know the oil burning issue is either your valve seals or piston rings but try changing the pcv valve and it might help

It's also really easy to change. Check youtube. It's located near your alternator

Good to know, I might have to do this soon. Although I'm lucky and my vehicle does not suffer from the oil burning issue.
