    This typically means you are burning oil or coolant. Could be valve guides, valve seals, piston rings, head gaskets, etc. Have a compression test done and a wet test if needed. May also need to do a cylinder leak down test and cooling system pressure test. Are you having to add fluids? If you are then please share that info in OP.
