What is the cause of excessive oil consumption in a 2004 Chevy Malibu?

If you have blue-gray smoke coming out of the exhaust, then you have worn or damaged piston rings, or valve seals. If the smoke is excessive, a major engine overhaul will be necessary. If no blue-gray smoke is coming out of the exhaust, then look for a worn/damaged oil pan gasket, or a loose oil pan plug, or a loose oil filter. In either of these cases, you should see oil spots on the ground under the car.
