Burning Oil

My truck has been burning oil. What are some major things I should look for since it's not leaving an oil spot or anything such as that.

I'm kind of thinking it has to do with the injectors but I'm not really sure

I lose about 2+ qts during my 3000 miles between oil changes. I've been wondering about this very subject myself. I use Rotella 15w-40 and Mobil 1 filter, which I dump in to total up my oil drained. I figure in a little for spillage and such as I pour my old oil from my oil collecting drain pan back into the 1 gallon jugs.

I have found my last 2 oil changes have been 2 quarts low over the 4000 mile intervals. I am using Valvoline Premium Blue 15-40. Is this something i should be worried about or is this normal?

its worth a compression test. also look in your fuel bowl, is the fuel color dark? if so thats another of a few indicators that o-rings are bad.

I also have the same issue with my 2002. Can some of you give ideals to what to look for.

It seems like I need to check my fuel bowl for oil. As this might indicate that the injector o-rings are bad.

Anything else I should look for?????

Thanks

The weird thing is that after ichange my oil it holds constant for 3 or 4000 miles and then it seems as if I have to add a quart every 1000. But I haven't really been taking notes just adding it when it needs it
