Do you have any external oil leaks? If not, your engine may be burning oil either because of worn valve stem oil seals, worn valve guides, or worn piston rings. Pull the plugs and see if they're fouled up with oil.
A thermostat that's stuck closed will cause the engine to overheat very quickly about 2-3 minutes after a cold start. When does your engine overheat and how hot does it run?

if you can get it to an autozone, they will check your computer for codes and tell you what the problem is.
