Please add more info, your query is not clear.

but try the following

1. swap leads and spark plugs from pistons that are ok. And see if your 2 & 3 pistons are better. and if your other pistons become bad. Process of elimination.

My 1997 cadillac deville, northstar w/85, regular oil changes, burns almost 2 quarts of oil every change. It is not leaking.

If your car is losing oil, and if there is no evidence of oil leaking, there is no question that it is either losing it through piston rings or through the head (head gasket or valve guides).
Best thing to do is use a HEAVIER WEIGHT oil than specified for the vehicle when new, regularly monitor your oil level and be sure it never falls below one quart low, and consider having the engine overhauled when you start noticing a performance deficit or hear mechanical noise (such as rod knock) from the engine.

Problem with 2001 Prizm '01 Prizm 5 spd: piston ring change possible without pulling engine (Toyota 1zzfe) Posted by Guest on 11/29/2012 Details '01 Prizm 5 spd: piston ring change possible w

If you unbolt the con rod bearings and push the piston out of the bores, then the rings can be changed but the bores MUST be honed at the same time.

How can you tell if piston rings are gone bad?

Piston rings don't normally go bad. They get worn or they get locked in the grooves in the piston. When this happens, the engine will begin burning oil and the compression in the cylinder will be lower. There is no quick fix for this. You have to rebuild the engine, or you can use an "engine restorer" product to keep the car going as long as possible.

Blue smokes come out tailpipe when i start the car but stops afte

Helllo there
Symptom: Gray or blue smoke from the exhaust. You notice gray smoke coming from the exhaust when you start your car. The smoke may or may not disappear after the car is warmed. If it is, it is less noticeable. The smoke may have a bluish tint to it. Possible causes:

  1. The engine's piston rings may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace piston rings. (Generally not a DIY job)
  2. The engine's valve seals may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace valve seals. (Generally not a DIY job)
  3. Damaged or worn valve guides.
    The Fix: Replace valve guides. (Not a DIY job)
Symptom: Engine uses more oil than normal, and there is some smoke from the exhaust. The oil level is low between oil changes. It appears that the oil is being burned by the engine because of the smoke in the exhaust. You may or may not notice the engine doesn't have the same power as it used to.
Possible causes:

  1. The PCV system is not working properly.
    The Fix: Replace PCV valve.
  2. The engine may have mechanical problems.
    The Fix: Check compression to determine engine condition.
  3. The engine's piston rings may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace piston rings. (Generally not a DIY job)
  4. The engine's valve seals may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace valve seals. (Generally not a DIY job)

Oil pump problem on 97 540i

No, if the oil pump went bad the engine wouldn't get lubricated at all, then it would sieze.

That's like saying I'm bleeding, my heart must be bad. Not so, no heartbeat, no blood pressure.

It's good news for the oil pump that it's burning oil, at least, the pump is moving oil around the engine for it to be burned.

Bad valves or piston rings will burn oil. Most likely piston rings

What is reason for engine oil coming out of exhasut manifold

You are asking good questions, first the oil, I presume your vehicle is of high mileage? and possibly had a hard life with maybe late service intervals?
There are a few possibilities oil is being burned, first and this relates to your last question (Back compression) is worn compression piston rings, the compression of the combustion seeps past these and sends pressure through the oil scraper rings (Last set on the piston) increasing crankcase pressure which in turn forces a film of oil out of your breather pipe, the outlet is usually located on the air filter so it is drawn into the cylinders and is burned causing poor ignition and smoke from the rear.
Second and possibly combined is valve guide wear, the valves allow oil through their worn stems and seals causing a smoke haze, this usually clears a lot when engine reaches operating temp.

Over heating is it wise to run the car w/out a themostat

I have a 525Tds Touring E34 from your very brief description It is never wise to run a vehicle causing it to overheat as allsorts of damage can occur i.e. softened piston rings, valve burn out and possible Cylinder head warpage.
I would have the vehicle checked a.s.a.p.
Good luck,

Oil; burning

If you changed rings and valve gaides before you fitted new rings have you check cylinder block?it mybe cylider worn out so it was to rebore engine block and put new piston with new rings.
the ather thing it hapen sometimes when you fitting piston rings, check how piston rings is it should be all piston rings defrent direction inside the piston groves.
Use original parts.
