I have one piston ring leaking some oil to spark plug.
I do not need to repair the motor now. Is there some steps to give me some more time until to have the money and time to repair.

If you are sure it's apiston ring then no but it could be a valveseal doing the same thing. Only way to check if it's a piston ring is to do a leakdown on the cylinder.
