Whether you can hear something or not does not change the fact that the sound should not be there at all. The only explanation would be if there are other underlying problems.

My Acura dealer told me the volume to fill from bottom to top of hash marked section is one quart. Oil pan is non linear so vehicle must be level to get accurate reading.

oil consumption not consistent

I have noticed oil consumption for last 25k miles since I started doing oil changes myself. It consumed about 2 quarts between oil changes in beginning. Now about 1 quart every 2000 miles. At 67K, I added 1 quart to get it to top mark.
At 69K, took it to dealer and they added 1q to bring it to top mark.( I had received Oil Consumption letter)

Now after about 800 miles, level is same, I have been checking in Garage. No other changes to vehicle or driving.
