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.

How do I replace the rings when it is time?

Hello,
As a general rule, oil on spark plugs can be caused by bad valve cover gaskets, worn spark plug o-rings or valve guides, a faulty head gasket or a broken piston ring. Symptoms of oil on spark plugs include blue smoke from the exhaust, poor fuel economy and engine misfires.
The leaky valve cover is more common reason for oil in the plugs.
