My car is using a lot of oil. Adding 1 quart every 3 to 4 hundred miles. Can not find any leaks under the car or around valve cover. Does not smoke. Any idea?

All I can tell you is that it is either leaking it or burning it. You need to find out which. It may be drawing into the intake through the PCV system. Check your PCV valve.

The engine uses alot of oil. The head gasket and valve seats were replaced. And the problem stills uses a half to a full quart within 100 miles

Well if it's not leaking it, it must be burning it. Do you notice blue smoke out your exhaust? You say that the head gasket and valve seats were done. How about the valve guides? Oil can go past worn valve guides and valve seals. The only other place that oil can be getting by is past the piston rings.

If there is a consent white smoke coming out your pipe what that mean, but no nosie from the engine it self, I have a 95 saturn

there are a few indications of your engines running condition.
water dripping from the tailpipe (depends on how much) can always be an indication of blown read gasket.
white smoke is usually an indication of the vehicle burning rich, or with too much fuel.
dark colored smoke is usually an indication of the vehicle burning oil, leaking down into the cylinder heads.

I have 199 Saturn SC2 it uses 1 quart oil about every 10 days and smokes on ecceleration once in a while, no leaks. Can you help?

Oil is most likely burning up. It it usually caused by worn oil or piston rings. You can use a bottle of stop smoke witch seems to help sufficiently in these cases.
