Hi!

Okay, first priority is to get it running properly. Take it to the local parts store and get them to give you a list of the troublecodes that are present. Most of them do this for free. At that point we can help you figure out what sensor you may need.
Next, let's get some more info about the oil usage. Do you see any evidence of leaking? Are there spots on the ground where you park or is there an oily coating on the bottom of the engine and/or any surfaces behind it? If so, the leak should be easily located. If you don't see any external leakage, I would start by replacing the PCV valve. If it is stopped up, there could be enough crankcase pressure to blow a little oil into your combustion chambers which would then burn - sometimes you'll see smoke coming out of the tailpipe.
Once the functionality issues are addressed, the way is free and clear to improve performance.

Thanks!
