Oil is disappearing and hard start...HELP

i have a 2003 f250 with the 7.3. i was driving the other day and my check gauge light came on and when i looked i saw my oil pressure droping and pulled over. come to find out there was no oil on the dipstick. so i added 8 quarts of oil and and it was a little over the add mark. so today i checked it and its almost off the dipstick again. its been 5 days.

There is no oil leaking on the ground and the truck does not smoke at all. it has 260K miles on it but is stock other than an intake and straight piped. does anyone have any suggestions as to where my oils going. it is also hard to start when its hot or cold. i was told maybe a bad injector or the injector o-rings. any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

possibly could be the turbo?? but it sounds like the injector O rings to me, if it is its probly putting oil into the fuel. pull the cover of your fuel filter and see what color it is. just my guess im sure others will chime in.

i dont think you will have a code unless the check engine light is on, but im not sure. pulling injectors on these is no small task. unless you have some experience i would recomend you do some reading first. i seem to remember something about oil running on top of the pistons. i would educate myself first, just my 2c.
