    Default Engine oil decreasing Mehran

    Salam,
    I got very valuable informations from PW members. i need more expert opinions
    1: Head gasket is weak as it produces bubbles in the radiator
    2: Coolant goes to Reservior bottle but does't come back to radiator because of weak gasket.
    3: Rings are also weak as it is decreasing 100ml/100KM engine oil.
    I went to a well known mechanic of my area. He advised me to drive your car by keeping coolant bottle and engine oil with you. as its only 10 to 20% affected and you can drive your car upto 2 months 50km daily.
    When you see engine oil start contaminating or dercreasing rapidly then come and change the gasket and rings.
    Plz suggest me should i follow his instructions??
    I have no other significant problems like,loss of power,starting trouble,speed,or overheating of engine.
    as cooling fan is direct so temp needle rises only 1 to 1.5 cm.
    Need expert opinion
    Thanks

    that is 20W-50 hiflo, oil is burning. Few members posted ZIC quality issues on PW.

    in current situation, change the oil (next time you do)

    Try Shell HX-7 10W-40 (blue bottle), Mobil XHP 15W-40, or Caltex 20W-50.
