Oil reducing, want to know how to tackle the problem, I noticed reduction in oil level a day after servicing and if I top it up again, within some period, it will short again. I will like you to advice me what is the cause and how to prevent or tackle it.

cheers

It sounds like you are losing a lot of oil. It has to be going somewhere. Is there any blue smoke from the exhaust? IS there any oil mixing with the engine coolant? If you place a piece of cardboard under the vehicle, do you see any leaks? Are you sure the oil level was full after the service?
