Default Excessive Oil Consumption?

Hello All and thanks for any help in advance.

I have a RAM 1500, 2011 with the 5.7 Hemi with Cylinder De-Activation. It is using at least a quart of oil every 1000 miles and the dealer says that is totally normal. It has 41,000 miles on it aprox.

I was wondering how much others with this same motor have been using??

Thanks again,

JJ Suprise

does seem abit excessive. Change your PCV. take the air intake hose off and see if there is alot of oil in the intake manifold!
