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

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.
