We bought the truck used with 107000 miles. We have been adding at least a quart of oil a week. We have been watching closely and see no smoking or any signs of a leak. Where is this oil going? We also have not noticed any loss of power or chattering. We are at a loss.

It can be worn valve guides, seals or a head gasket leaking. Have it checked for all of these.
