    where is my oil going ?

    Hi. I have a 1999 t plate 1.6 8 valve astra which runs fine apart from the oil keeps dissapering . the level will be fine for a few days then all of a sudden the oil level just vanishes . it isnt leaking out anywhere neither is it going into the water and does not appear to burning large amounts .If i top the oil up and run it again for a day the oil level will show there is to much in there so i have to drain some back out .Its like the oil is building up somwhere . I dont think it is the drain under the rocker cover as this has been looked at recently.
    any help on this would be very welcome as its got me beat

    Perhaps a silly question, but before you check the oil level, you are leaving the car on a level surface for at least 30 minutes to let all the oil drain back into the sump?
