what do you guys think?

my car seems to be very inconsistently losing oil. i'd imagine it's burning it, but i'm not entirely sure. last week i drove around town never shifting higher than 3500 rpm, and the next morning before driving it, i checked the oil level and i had lost maybe a 1/4 of a quart. then the past week or so, i've been popping vtec a bit more than normal. i've been checking the oil every morning before i drive it and according to the level on the dipstick, i haven't lost any at all. i used to lose a lot of oil and now it seems to have just stopped (knock on wood?).. what do you guys think could be going on?

okay... can be your cam seal (sits in the head by the vtec solenoid), distributor o ring, camshaft seals, main seal, or balancer shaft seals. usually.... first thing to check is where the leak is coming from. also check your pcv on the top of your valve cover...if it does rattle when you shake it.... then it is still good. if it doesnt then it cause your crank case pressure to build up and push oil out of seals on the motor.
