Leaking or burning oil

I own a 2010 X5 48i with 107k and the hydraulic power assist pump in front left of the engine (facing the engine) was leaking engine oil, I replaced the pump. I see no obvious oil leak so is my vehicle burning oil?

Are you seeing big oil consumption? Not clear from your post.

Not sure from your post of what you are asking but!...
- alternator gasket will fail... now... or is failing
- calve covers should be starting to leak
- valve seals should be failing as well (leave car sitting and running for 10 minutes, do you smell burning oil? Press gas pedal way down... got Blue Smoke?)

Sorry guys I'm typing on my smartphone.
I was reading that these engines uses a quart every 1000 miles or so and that's close to my situation but can I do something to reduce oil consumption?
Gregg3gs I'm going to check the alternator gasket for leaks. Any tips of more parts I should look for more leaks.
