The lovely smelling blue smoke is usually caused by oil getting into the cylinders due to faulty compression rings on the pistons. You'd be looking at a complete tear-down, not really worth it.

My nissan sentra 2004 model's engine runs out of oil in less than one week.

the only way you lose oil is by burning it or leaking it, if your car blows a lot of blue smoke, then you are burning it {engine rebuild or replace} if there is oil on the ground when you park, then you need to determine where the leak is coming from, pressure wash underneath before taking it to a mechanic, we hate getting under dripping dirty cars. glad to help.

It could be a broken Oil Pump, Is there oil in the engine or when you hit the pothole you could have hit the Exhaust Pipe and broke the pipe causing a Exhaust Leak.

Need to know 04 nissan sentra spec v valve flash sequence to fix tapping sound in engine

Not sure what you mean about a flash sequence. If there is a tapping noise,check your oil level and quality. When oil is low, the valve timing solenoid can not function properly as it runs on oil pressure. This will cause your tick noise. If your engine is burning oil the catalyst may be at fault. They break up and enter the engine through the exhaust valve and damage the cylinder.

Car is burning oil

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

1999 Nissan Sentra oil in air filter

First off, nothing "blows" into the air filter. It would be getting sucked in from somewhere in your engine compartment. My guess would be leaking valve cover. Check around and feel for wet oil. That will also be a leak. Have you been going through more oil than usual? Check that also. Hope that helped.
