Sounds like valve seals or rings in the engine. So your burning oil, check the oil level every week to keep it topped off. You could go for a long time like this. No need to put a lot of money into a '92 Toyota.

Your engine is getting old- just drive it for another 100 years- unless you are concerned about ruining the catalytic converter- and the planet's atmosphere-

Both good answers. Thank you for your time and help
