Does it lose oil? Or coolant?

You most likely have one or more of the following: 1: Bad rings.
2: Bad valve stems seals.
3: Blown head gasket between combustion chamber and oil galleries.
4: Cracked head.

Pull the coil wire and crank the engine. Can you hear a hissing sound from the valve cover area?
