Default Engine Oil Burning on 2009 Honda Accord with 92K miles

Hello Techies,

I have 2009 Honda Accord EXL with 92K miles on it. I recently noticing that within 2000 miles after oil change the engine oil is getting low below the 'min' so I had to add 1Qt oil to bump it high.

Any reason why the engine oil burns?

The 4 cylinder is inline, not a V as the 6 cyl.

PCV system blockage can cause excess oil consumption as crankcase vapor w/ oil droplets is pulled into PCV air intake. Clean/replace PCV valve and hose.

Poor maintenance habits; long oil change intervals or none can cause engine to wear prematurely.

Overheating severely damages the engine leading to oil consumption.

good luck
