EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION

2002 Hyundai Amica

Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Hyundai Amica 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 41000 miles

Oil consumption increased during past few months, requiring top ups each week.
No dripping leaks, although oil evident around air filter and engine.
Water level stable, although scummy deposits on oil filling cap.
Head gasket suspected, so was replaced.
Car now running OK, but oil consumption still a problem and still needing top ups as above.
Is there anything special regarding the oil breather pipes on this model of car?
No work shop manual available, so any advice much appreciated.
