Engine Cooling problem
2001 Suzuki Vitara 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 142000 miles

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4x4. I have changed the water pump, thermostat, sent it to a radiator shop and changed the fan. It keeps overheating and the water of the backflow container keeps flushing out and the truck is burning through a quart of oil within a week. Mechanic says we need to remove the engine to change a gasket but it would be a lil costly to do that and it not be the problem. If you can please tell me of any other possibilities.
