Smells problem
1999 Other Jeep Models V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

99 jeep grand cherokee limited AWD V8
has oil leak somewhere. Burned through 4 quarts in 2 months. NO oil spots or fluids being left under jeep in driveway, not even a small amount anywhere (must be burning off completely). Can smell a small amount of oil burning off when getting out of car every once in a while. I have had jeep up on lift no visible sign of oil or leakage anywhere (under entire vehicle or under hood). It's bone dry and clear of any visible oil. Any idea where it could be leaking coming from?

If its not leaking anywhere than its burning in the combustion chamber could be valve seals/stems/guides and cyl wear and rings-check engine compression to confirm-normally if its burning oil blue smoke should be existing from the exhaust pipe
