What could be the problem after i put in new valves seals and new piston rings there is oil coming at a piston?

Sounds like you have a motor for a Cessna 150 / airplane which looks like a vw engine except it has two plugs with two different magnetos to run them. Come in 4/6 cylinders usually with one central carburetor. Double check position for gaps in piston rings and that there in the right places. If not offset correctly the compression will be low and pass/dump oil into cylinder. Also check the cylinder sleeves for cracks. I would recommend that you try using die penetrant inspection kit if you cant find the source. The sleeve is installed in cylinder heads. And cylinders can be removed from main body for inspection/replacement on a Cessna engine. And if I'm right about the motor you got then you can probably look up info on motor. Any airplane part has 100% traceability and you can get down to who made it, what part of world the rock was minned to make the engine and even a sample of material will be on file along with quality testing and any other information they have on it which should be all of it. Good luck with it.

A/C making a rattling noise

I'm assuming that your '89 Chevy has the C6 compressor, which utilizes teflon sleeves for the internal pistons. The teflon sleeves wear out, and the small pistons slap inside their chambers, making a sound like marbles in a can. Eventually, the compressor will seize.

They're fairly expensive compressors, so brace yourself!

Engine rebuild

Bummer. Usually you need to drop the oil pan, pull the rod and piston out, replace the sleeve, and use a ring comprssor to get the piston back into the cylinder and then put it all back together EXACTLY how it came apart including position on the sleeves, rods and bearings. I have not done this on a VW but I do not see this being much different than any other car that I have worked on. No matter what it will be a huge pain in the ***.

I'm fixing my engine with new rings but rings have not fitted and yet the block has not expanded, the spare parts show the same engine no. what can i do. I'm so desperate?

your replacing the piston rings? are you using a spring compressor? when you compress the rings and set the piston down in there sleeves make sure to oil the cylinders the with the rings compressed and staggered gently tap the top of the piston with the wooden handle of a hammer. when i say stagger i mean the gaps in each ring are in a different position so as not to create a bypass of pressure or oil. if you use the compressor the piston should slide into the sleeve of the cylinder
