so your truck goes through 4 quarts a day if that is happening don't drive your truck don't want to hurt it anymore. take it back and get it fixed if possiable if you can't then the problem needs to be found. but if there is no leaks and nothing coming out of the exhaust. than I don't know where the oil is going.

MY 99.5 was doing the same thing, using a TON of oil with no leaks and no noticable/excessive smoke, i took it into the shop and it was pronounced dead. you probably are burning it...start it and take the oil cap off, see if it dont spray oil all over the place. you might be lookin at a rebuild. when i pulled my engine apart, 4 of the cylinders were full of engine oil/fuel.
