Would changing the pistons solve an oil problem?

Changing the pistons will NOT fix an oil problem UNLESS you have a hole in the piston, which would cause many more problems as well. Placing new rings on the pistons, along with honing the cylinder walls (which is necessary if you are replacing rings) WILL allow the cylinder to seal better, improving compression and stopping oil slipping past the oil ring. It would be wise to check valve guides and seals as well if you decide to change the rings.

oversize pistons well of coarse are bigger but you will have to take your block to a machine shop and get them to bore it to the size of the pistons you have best thing to do is take your block and pistons to the shop and let them do that for you depends where you live but to get it bored can average to a $100 or up and if you get oversize pistons you will also need rings to fit the pistons and the other difference in oversize and standard the overside will give you more hp.

98 Dodge Neon won't start and plugs had oil on them?

I am not a professional mechanic but i think that you might have blown rings on the pistons that have oil on the spark plugs. what is probably happening is the rings are bad so, you are not getting good if any compression in the cylinders and the oil on the plugs is probably from a bad oil control ring also on the pistons and the oil is getting past the pistons onto the plugs.

Can you put new rings in your engine without changing bore size?

Unfortunately this is not a simple "yes/no" question. Sometimes an engine can be disassembled and there is little if any cylinder wear, especially if the oil has been changed regularly and the engine has been properly cared for. If there is no wear you can hone the cylinder walls and put new rings in, provided that the pistons are also not worn. Obviously worn pistons need to be replaced as well. If the cylinders have as little as a couple thousands of "taper" you need to have the cylinders bored and replace the pistons/rings with an over-sized version. That kind of cylinder "boring" doesn't change the displacement enough to make any significant difference.

How do you replace oil rings in a 94 Geo Metro?

This is a major overhaul. You must remove the intake manifold, exhaust manifold, oil pan, and head. You then must remove the pistons, install the rings on pistons, reinstall the pistons, along with all bearings, and reassemble the engine. If you wish to attempt this repair there is way too much to this to try and describe in detail here. I suggest you purchase a repair manual.
