runs great..cracked..oil leak or 2, and she blows out Blue smoke

This answer was rated:

1989 323Madza ; 2nd motor, but runs great!! I have a broken or cracked oil ring, which means it has a oil leak or 2, and she blows out Blue smoke, sometimes. Also, she has 240.000 miles on her. 'She is made of medal', which makes me feel safer, about an accident.
She has been kept up, by me, ever since I bought her from 'a' one person owner, who also fixed anything , that broke immediately.Do I get another enjine, or fix oil ring, which takes longer, then to put in another rebuit engine?


it would be much cheaper to find another engine at a salvage yard,,and just replace this one,,,it would be cheaper and quicker
