You may also be burning oil. Need to have engine checked for source of burning oil, may be able to see this immediately when remove plugs and inspect the tip for signs of burned oil, then have compression test done to see if need a wet test to pinpoint whether it is valve guides/seals or rings, and then have inspected for source of oil leaks. May need to add dye and inspect for oil leak with blacklight.
