Question about 1996 Nissan Sentra
I have a 96 sentra 1.6 thats burning close to 2 quarts of oil a week. There are no signs of an oil leak under the car or on the engine.
You have sort of an swered your own question, its burning it slowly, it could be the piston rings have warn and the oil is seeping past them under presure and being burnt in the fuel, not not noticably enough to signs of smoke from rear , try checking the muffler/rear box and see if there is a sticky oily residue on it, for normal running it should be verry dark grey not pitch black and powdery, if its tacky and like tar, then you are burning oil. hope that helps
