Burning oil

I just changed the oil 3500 (synthetic) miles ago and I already had to add one quart of oil to the engine. This isn't the first time this has happened so I am looking for some answers or if anyone else has had this issue. THere isn't any clouds on start up, noticible leaks or odors.If anyone has any ideas please let me know. THanks in advance.

I have a 2010 sport 3.7, my oil was changed about 3500 miles ago also. I was driving on vacation last week, checked the oil at my destination and it was a quart low. I have not checked it since I have been back. Looking forard to seeing some replies to this.

It is normal for vehicles with higher mileage to be about a quart low when it comes time for the oil to be changed. How many miles do you have on your Commander?

Did you check your oil when you had it changed last? I know my 4.7 takes an extra quart.

I agree with BADOS. My 4.7 is like that also. Need to add a extra qt.

Did you start the engine right after you changed it and then check the oil again ?

61000 miles. I always check it and am good with being up to date with the maintenance on my xk. It just doesn't make any sense.

All the newer Chrysler engines seem to have pcv systems that are horrible. I am betting your intake is oil coated and you are sucking oil in the pcv. I would replace the pcv and consider a catch can. Catch cans are very common with hemi's across the board.

I have a 2009 HEMI and it uses up about a quart every 3500 miles. Has 49k miles on it and have always used Mobile1 synthetic with regular oil changes. I don't drive the vehicle hard either. No blue smoke or leaks.

Tomorrow I'm going to change my oil with Redline 5W20 and see if that holds up better.

If that doesn't work I might go the catch-can route like duneslider mentioned.
