Start with the basics.

1. Get it compression checked
2. Have a leak down test.

the compression test will tell you if things are all normal.
the leak down will tell you if its the valves seating properly and which one is the culprit.

The compression check takes half hour all told, the leak down much longer.

Find a reliable back street garge where they actually fix cars not fit parts till it stops messing about.
You could also have a fecked head gasket and its blowing the oil into the bores and burning it off.

An online diagnosis is very difficult.
You could go and see Vince at stealth hes not a million miles from the midlands, he not cheap but hes absolutley spot on.
