Any good oil will work. newer engines use 5-30 for better gas mileage. Your car may have 100K miles so I would use 10-30 or 20-30 if you can find it. Change the oil and filter every 3000-4000 miles and the engine will last a long time.

That would be oil burning. Pay close attention to your oil level, check it daily. You will need to get the engine checked by a shop or mechanic to troubleshoot the problem for sure and make a decision on where to go. Hope this helps.
