Kick the bucket?

Well my truck has been having some serious problems. This last weekend I put four quarts of oil in my truck and now it is empty. It is not leaking on the ground it is going out the exhaust. It is going into the mechanics shop and we are figuring out the problem. He said it is probably the rings are bad. If so I am praying there is no scaring of the cylinder walls.
