I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty 6 cyl Sport and I am losing about a quart of oil a week and there are no visible leaks, it has almost 130,000 miles, where is the oil going?

I drive about 75 miles a week, how visible is the blue exhaust? I have not noticed it. How do I fix it?

the engine is most likely

the engine is most likely burning oil. it enters the cylinder past either bad valve seals or worn rings/cylinders. An engine overhaul is required to fix worn rings/cylinders.
However, bad valve seals can be repaired without major engine work (in a day or two).

Have a partner to drive

Have a partner to drive behind you and check the tailpipe for the blue smoke. It is most noticable during deceleration and upon starting after the vehicle has been drive for about 30 minutes and left to sit for 10 minutes or longer.
