caravan burns oil

Every two weeks I have to put twoquarts of oil in my 93 Dodge Caravan. There are not any kind of leaks, so all it could be is burning of oil. I also just had a tune up on my van in hopes that it would stopburning oil and gas.

Does the exhaust emit blue to bluish white smoke?If it does it's oil burning and if it's a 3.0 v-6 the valve guides have probably dropped causing the oil to burn.That means the cylinder heads would need repaired.There are other causes of oil burning but let us know the engine size and if it smokes.
