2003 996 C4S Troubleshooting change in oil consumption


Vehicle Information: Model: 996 C4S; Year: 2003; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 34,000;

Greetings again! Over the winter I had kind of a step-change in oil consumption. I was running about 1 qt per 1700 miles, and then it went to about 1 qt per 600-700 miles. I would like your comments regarding troubleshooting this change so that I can pass them on when I take the car in. Other observations: No smoke ever. No drips. I do notice extra soot on left tailpipe and on left bumper. The soot also looks like "spots" on the bumper, but is not oily. Perhaps it came out with condensation? I read earlier posts regarding a sport oil separator. Perhaps this would help?As always, thanks!
