You can put inoil addatives {like STP} to help them last. There is also a thing called "Overhaul in a can" which I have used with limited success.

It is time for an engine overhaul. The pistion rings/ oil rings and compression rings are either broken are worn out. That is called blow-by. Your engine is done.

Possibly worn cylinder bore(s), or worn out or broken piston rings.

Your engine is burning oil. The usual causes are worn out valve guides and seals, broken piston rings, worn rings and scored cylinders which all amounts to an engine overhaul. If you have a turbo charger on your vehicle, it may have gone bad.
