I hate to say it but you need to find a new engine or have yours overhauled, if you're burning (alot) of oil its probably due to the piston oil control rings being stuck and not doing their job. That alone can cause a multitude of issues that will never be solved no matter how many other parts you throw at it, i.e spark plugs/ coils wear out prematurely, burnt exhaust valve(s), alot of carbon buildup (usually shows itself as black soot spattered out tailpipe at startup) which kills power and increases fuel consumption. Unfortunately theres not always an cheap/ easy solution
