I was replacing an air filter on my wife's car (14 Verano 2.4) and decided to quickly check the oil level. To my surprise the dipstick was dry. I had an oil filter and oil on hand so I did an oil change on the spot. To my horror, when draining the oil only 2 quarts came out (takes 5). I finished the oil change and decided to check the levels weekly from here on out to try and pinpoint the problem. It's been 3 weeks now and the dipstick still shows it as completely full. There are no signs of leaking anywhere, nothing on the garage floor. I figured at the rate it was losing oil I would notice something by now. In the past I have changed one of the camshaft position actuator solenoids (I don't remember which one, exhaust maybe?) which I know is a common oil issue with these cars. Any ideas where to be looking? The car seems to run fine, no oil pressure lights have come on. It has about 85,000 miles on it.
