Hello my name is salman. I have a problem with my car. The oil is burning too soon. Just 2 months ago i got my car serviced at a local garage. I checked my oil noticing that the oil is just disappearing. So i don't really know what is happening. There is no noise, rattle or smokes.
I would appreciate your help.
Thank you

Like you suggest it's burning inside,
And as there is no smoke I'd guess it's the valve stem oil seals or the guides themselves.
So just renewing the stem seals "might" work.

You don't say what engine in car .If valve stem oil seals , when engine at working temp let it idle for a minute or so then rev engine and you will get a plume of blue smoke .If it's the 1.6 engine notorious for using oil .
