1996 Honda Civic Question: Burns too much oil

I have to check the oil in my car about every 2weeks because by then its completely out of oil. The oil light doesnt come on, and it barely began to smoke a little bit for example while entering freeway. its not leaking the oil, dont know why it burns it so fast.

    could be rings or valve guides. a leak down test froma shop will verfy.

    do not wait so long to check your oil as you may damage the internals by letting it get too low.
