eric, could be a lot if things. Do a compression test and a leak down test first. Sounds like issues with the cylinder head and/or the valves i.e. valve stem seals etc. White smoke and the smell are pretty much evidence that you do burn oil.

eric, I don't think any additives will make a difference. In order to checks the heard you would have to remove it and get it fluxed for cracks.
