A whole lot of things can cause this.
Since I don't do tercels, here is what it could be.
Valve stem seals:
Those are seals around the valve stems that keep the oil from running into the cylinders after you shut off the engine. Some places can replace them without removing the cylinder head. Car should smoke when first started, until the oil in the cylinder burns out.
Bad oil ring:
The car should smoke badly if your ring is wornout, broken or failed. Will require removing the head and oil pan, pretty close to an engine overhaul.
Leaking head gasket:
There are passages to let oil go from the pump up to the top of the head to lubricate the overhead cam. One part of the head gasket could be leaking.
Quick fix:
In the old days, some tried to put in a hotter spark plug which would burn off the excess oil. Your spark plug has some numbers and letters on it. The number sometimes indicates heat range. Talking to a knowledgeable clerk, they can sell you a hotter plug with a higher number.

there is no repair manual published for the 1996 tercel, not from chilton, not from haynes.

the 1994 tercel and the 1996 corolla are both covered in haynes manuals, that's the closest we can get. both have some of the same systems, gotta pick and choose.

there is an expensive professional repair manual, published by toyota, i think, that's what mechanics buy for shops. it costs hundreds, and is not easy to buy.

SOURCE: need to find specks on cylingder head for 1996 toyota tercel

The cylinder head bolt torque is a 2 step process.

First: Torque all of the bolts to 45 Nm (450 Kgf-cm or 33 ft lbs.)
Replace any head bolt that will not torque to the above specs.

Second: after all ten bolts are torqued to the above specs, the head bolts are then "Torqued to Distance"...

Starting at the center bolts, retorque all ten bolts an additional 90 degrees.

Hope this helps, the graciousness of a FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

1993 toyota tercel 1 cylinder has low compression


There is no quick fix on low compression.
Less hope for a stick valve.
Do an oil change with 30 weight oil.
Ran it for few minutes and hope it's just a stuck valve.

Oil capacity


You can easily determine capacity by changing the oil, with filter. After adding three quarts, start and run the engine, then carefully fill it 'till it is full. Wait at least one minute between each time you add more oil so it has time to drain into the pan. When it reads full you will know the exact amount needed. Write it down and know it forever!! Offhand I believe it's closer to four than three.
