Oil is just disappearing..need help

ok i have a 97 f350 powerstroke and it has lost about two quarts of oil in about 3 days..probably 200 miles..the truck has 232k miles and it is bone dry under it..i looked in the fuel filter housing because i thought about injector o rings and the fuel in the filter housing being black..well nope its normal color..i have also read that the turbo can leak oil so i talked to an old ford diesel mechanic and he said that i would see smoke if the turbo was leaking..i see no smoke except on a cold startup for maybe 10 seconds..smoke is grey..

Checked for oil in coolant? Could have an oil cooler issue.

I would pull the downpipe and intake Y off of the turbo and check them. I would be willing to bet the turbo seals are shot and most likely injecting the oil into the cylinders and if it is doing that you may not see any blue smoke.

Check either the exhaust for oil or the intake system post compressor for tons of oil.
