    on this morning. First thing checked oil level and it was low. I just had oil change done 3weeks ago and it seems it is burning oil.
    Is this normal for 115k mile LC? Or should I have it check up done?

    Pop in a new PCV valve, only costs a couple of dollars. Might correct the oil lose problem. I am assuming that it was full and you checked it 3 weeks ago after you changed the oil.
