Burning ... or leaking? It is smoking? If so, check the PCV valve, it's vacuum connections, and the integrity of the hose(s) connected throughout that vacuum system. Of course, you could have bad valve stem seals, or even bad valve guides, or even bad or broken rings. Check the front and rear main seals in the engine too.

I took spark plugs out of 2001 Ford Ranger 3.0L to place plug fowlers in. Spark plug will fit in fowlers, however; fowlers will not fit in engine. Placed plugs back in engine and now will not start.

Sounds like that car is the proverbial POS. Did you check for spark? - need a strong one with a car burning that much oil and the plugs getting fouled like that. Need to replace those rings!

Hyundai slowly burning oil

Do a compression test to determine if the piston rings are worn. Bad valve stem seals will allow excessive oil to be drawn by the valve stem guides.

I have 2005 nissan altima n i have to put oil in it every 2 weeks but i took to several mechinics in they said theres nothing wrong with it i know there s a problems with the oil cause its not staying

The simple answer is - - if it is leaking that much you should see something on the ground. If not, it is burning it either past the rings or valves.
If it has a leak you should be able to have it fixed, if it is burning oil the engine would need to be rebuilt which will not be cheap.
A quart every two weeks is alot but not as much as an overhaul.

Having trouble topping up diff oil on my mazda bravo 1990

Some cars, for what ever reason will burn off a quart of oil even if the oil is topped off at the right level. I had a ford trk. that was like that, but when it burned off that quart it didn't burn off anymore. I don't like to run an engine low on oil so I was constantly adding oil,(when I thought about it) If you can find an old mechanic ask him, he may know a reason why.

2003 F150 4.6 w/ 90K miles using a quart of oil every 3 weeks. what's most likely cause?

A V8 engine will start to consume more oil as they get more and more
miles on them. The valve stem seals and piston rings wear, and let
more and more oil burn off in the exhaust. How many miles are you
travelling in said 3 weeks?
