Do you notice a oil smell in exhaust or anywhere? How about blue exhaust? Look under vehicle on oil pan. Notice oil on that?

How much are you loosing every other day?

Coolant level always good? Vehicle runs good?

Checked coolant its correct adding about a quart every other day! Taps every now and then but otherwise runs great!

Ok, now I think you should be checking for compressoin issues indicating loose of oil and coolant into the combustion chamber. Due to bad headgasket, cracked block or cracked/warped head.
