hey sorry to hear that

what is the mileage on it ?

2 quarts a month is a lot,

do you hear a rattle when you first crank up and goes away after few seconds .

does is smoke from tail pipe when you get on it or taking off from a stop light

if the piston oil rings are bad it will use the oil

you can pull the plugs and do a compression test & look at the tip of the plugs for evidence of oil

oil pressure light on ?

Please let me know

Thank You
