In the USA, a set of rings would cost you anywhere from $35 to $100 depending on the brand.

check the cap and rotor on the distributor. Make sure the tip of the rotor is clean and the inside contacts of the cap are clean also.

SOURCE: how much are piston ring replacements for 1997

This would not be just rings. Rings do not tap, and rings do not make white smoke. Rings make smoke that is often described as blue, even though it also has some white.

White smoke, on the other hand, usually is a LOT. and quite visible and thick. Some say it smells sweet. This is coolant in the combustion chamber....

I sugges that the tapping be diagnosed, then decide what to do, as surgery may be too costly to make any sense.

A valve repair, and a head R&R and resurface, check for cracks, and put back on just MIGHT make sense to spend the $$ .

My Toyota tercel my cylinder 1 is on 70 my cylinder 2 is on 50 on compression what the I have to do to fix that

I had more trouble with a Toyota Tercel than any car I have ever owned!

First you can try squirting some of that decoking solution into the cylinders as it will sometimes release the piston rings and make them seal a bit better. If that doesn't work, you would have to remove the engine, cylinder head, remove the crankshaft and pistons, check the rings, replace them and hone the bore. If the car is in good condition, you would re-bore the cylinder bores and put in oversize pistons and rings to match. Good for another 100,000 miles.

Having frightened you with that, it might just be that the valve isn't sealing very well, in which case you remove the head and lap the valves in with grinding paste, or replace that number 2 valve if it is badly burnt.

No compression in one cylinder in a 1993 Toyota tercel

Could be a burnt valve or bad set of piston rings on that cylinder. Probably would be more feasible to replace the engine with a lower mileage one.

Oil consumption

You can try a special additive like RESTORE or something but usually this has to do with the piston rings, and the only way to fix it is an rebuilding the upper part of the engine. How many miles are on the car and how long have you had this problem? It would need repair or replacement. Usually replacement with a used engine is about the same or less then fixing the current engine.
Thank you,

What is the redline on my 1993 (4-speed) Toyota Tercel? (I am trying to install a tachometer)

idle 800 rpm max rev 3500 rpm any more causes the valves to burn out and the piston rings to break which is caused by worn bores and piston ring grooves.keep rpm down and this motor will last forever
