Oil usage ?

Have 2003 coupe 3.0 liter v6 6sp mt--bought it recently and started replacing and repairing things, problem is it uses a quart of oil very 100-150 miles, found a leak in the oil pan and replaced it, the pvc was clogged replaced it, still using oil, it does not smoke at all not on start up on on the highway etc, I have to assume and sure hate to have to, that the oil rings are shot and maybe the pups and main cat is hiding the smoke or something, anyone have or heard of this issue would appreciate any info before I buy a low mileage used motor or have this one rebuilt, though I was doing something practical getting a Honda, maybe this was not the Honda to get, it has about 150k on it and runs great otherwise and I love this car though not sure I will ever get used to front wheel drive thanks much

Open up your oil cap with the engine running and put your hand over the opening, see if you feel any compression out the cap, if so rings are shot. Also pull and post pics of your spark plugs, lets see what they look like.
