    Possibly leaking into oil through a worn headgasket. If exhaust is a whitish-blue color this is prob. the issue. Check to make sure radiator cap is sealed all the way.

    I agree with csubak30 have the cooling system pressure tested if there is no external leaks then it could be a head gasket
