96 BURNING OIL

1996 Acura Integra • 4 cylinder Manual • 197,000 miles

I have a 96 acura integra with 197,000 on it. It's burning oil, little less than 2 quarts a month, and there are some oil spots on the road where I park it. The car runs great other than that but I am confused as to what is causing it. I haven't seen any smoke and the oil on the dipstick looks normal. So, what's going on?

I would be repairing any external oil leaks and if you are using a full synthetic oil, try a semi or even a full mineral oil as it will be burning oil in small quantities that may not be noticed.
