If you have smoke coming out the exhaust that needs to be diagnosed (white but with pale blue tinge?)
There used to be a chemical test of the coolant that showed if compression gas is getting into the cooling system

175~180 psi is good (hot?) and would lead one to assume rings are good

Misfiring due oil leaking from rocker cover is a common problem

Oil usage - it has to be leaking or burning oil
