Burning oil is a burned or stuck valve or bad rings. Loss of Anti freeze is over heating or a bad head gasket or major problem with the engine. The fluids have to be going somewhere. I have had conditions where the leak only occurred when the engine was running and was very hard to find. Rear Main seal issue. You need to have the motor checked out by a mechanic.

I have an 08 cayenne and im smelling antifreeze...not in vents but outside motor...i see no leaks or puddles...any suggestions?

If it was a regular car I would pay someone a few bucks and put it up on a lift and look for anti-freeze stains on its belly. An oil change or muffler shop would do that, the forward motion of the car would create a track leading back to the leak point. I also would take a careful sniff at the end of the tail pipe, with the engine running and not. If you detect ANY odor of antifreeze at the tailpipe, drive directly to a dealer and get a rental to drive until they fix it

sounds like you have a blown head gasket. Could also be a cracked block. I would start with the gasket .

My car started smelling funny...pulled over lifted hood and it was steaming...white smoke came from under hood and tail pipe, car would not start again. Some say it may be a head gasket? How would I know?

You can tell by looking at dip stick if the oil has a creamy white substance there is antifreeze getting in oil (blown head gasket) or if ther is excessive white smoke coming from exhaust pipe upon acceleration. steam from under hood may be a coolant leak from a rubber hose or it may be leaking from the cylinder head onto the exhaust manifold also the car will be using up antifreeze.

Constant smoke from tail pipe.

If its smoking that bad you should be able to tell if its oil or antifreeze by the smell, stand behind the car as its running, if its white and you smell a sweet smell its antifreeze if its blue and smells like a oil refinery its oil.

Blown head gasket or not?

check oil dip stick for water/antifreeze and radiator for oil in antifreeze but usually alot of white smoke-steam from tailpipe usually indicates head gasket blue smoke means oil black smoke carbon

A few tell tail Signs to look for are
1. Excessive Pressure in radiator and car over heats
2. Look under oil cap when antifreeze and oil mixes it becomes a cream-ish white like heavy cream almost. It may be under there.
3. White smoke all the time out the tail pipe
4.loosing antifreeze but there is no visible leak.
5. Antifreeze in oil or oil in antifreeze.
