The oil in the car is disappearing. I dont know where its going. Its not leaking and its not burning. I just got out the shop 2 weeks ago. The repair guys cleaned the oil consumption out but still Im a qt low on oil. What to do? Where else can I check? How can I fix this. This is my only means of transportation. Please help

If it is not leaking then it is burning.

Have them do a wet and dry compression test.

The note the mechanic gave me says, the engine is leaking oil at the valve cover, front crank seal, and rear main seal. Holding the engine at 3000 rpm it fills shop through tailpipe. There is a problem with the oil rings on the pistons becoming carboned up, allowing engine to burn oil. They filled the cylinders with a decarbon agent overnight to see if this will solve the issue. I dont think it did being that I still am a qt low on oil.
