To tell the truth, the oil consumption wasn't really that bad. I replaced the oil filter housing gasket about 6 months ago and that stopped the previous consumption issue I had. Since then, no real issues. I think I have put maybe a half pint of oil in there since.

I definitely agree with you that the CCV should be checked and replaced on a schedule. I feel guilty for not doing it before, but it's always been in the back of my mind that I should just go ahead and replace the thing.
