You could have bad rings, valves not sealing, or worse cracked cylinder or cracked head. If it was one of the last two then you would be losing oil/water, or oil and water would be mixed. Either way it needs to go to a machine shop.
It probably has some internal engine damage. If you pull the spark plugs one or more will probably be oil fouled. You may want to have a compression test done and see if you can find the source of the oil - may be a head gasket.

I had the same problem finding a replacement oil cap after my husband left the cap off. The usual auto parts stores didn't have one that fit. I had to order the cap through the dealership. The problem was that Mazda changed the oil cap midway through the production year. Try oil caps from the years on either side of yours: if you have a 2004 vehicle, try getting a 2003 and 2005 oil cap.
U cannot drive far without an oil filter, as the engine will not have any oil in it and will possibly lock up. there are a few engines that have cartridge style oil filters that this is possible on, but that will only result in simply your oil not being filtered. if your filter is an external filter. it is impossible to drive 4 months without it!
