Oil leak burning oil??

I'm 17 and just purchased my first diesel 96 7.3. No mods just straight pipe. And I changed the oil right off. (And holy **** it takes a lot of oil). And I noticed that it was low pretty fast. But I have not noticed any puddles. So I heard hpop lines and that gasket ar common to leak. Oh and I should say there is no oil on the oil pan or the back of the motor but ther is oil on the front cover. My goal is to fix this right off and get it reliable before any other goodies. Any advice would be great I'm new to this and just trying to learn.

You may want to check around the oil cooler. That is a common place to leak as well.

If it is burning oil you will blueish/gray smoke out of the exhaust.

A few ways would be from the turbo, low compression, or injector o-rings.

or valve guides, or almost any where a o-ring meets oil...or a 07ish and older one can leak fuel at o-ring places too.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...
