Start by pulling the spark plugs and inspect them for evidence of oil burning. They will be particularly black and some may even be oily. Finding several oily plugs is better than finding one. Also stop to run your finger in the end of the tail pipe, black sooty is normal, black oily is not.
If you have several plugs that are oily, you may have a valve seal oil leak issue. This is can be an expensive repair depending on how it is done. Most shops will remove the heads and work them on a bench. These can be done on the vehicle with the right procedures.
If you have only one that is oily you may have a broken oil ring in one cylinder. This will require complete disassembly of the motor to verify the broken ring. At this point you are basically rebuilding the motor.
