most likely seperate problems...

My guess as to the oil smell and or usage would start at the valve covers.

(you have a leak somewhere)

O2 imbalance needs more info and prolly can't de diagnosed here.

Try replacing the engine and see it that helps. If not, it may be your injectors.

the biggest issue is that it is an american brand car.
