Are you loosing coolant?

Is coolant getting mixed with oil or vice versa?

Run engine to normal opeating temperature

Remove dipstick and let a drop fall onto a hot engine part

Oil will smoke coolant will sizzle Do a compression test

2 adjacient cylinders with low readings indicate a leaking head gasket
