Run the engine with the the breather/filler off, if it "chuffs" (sounds
like a sort of popping noise) then the rings are suspect. Does oil
and/or fumes blow out of the dipstick tube with the engine running?
If so a copression test is on the cards, but if it showing those two
symptoms I'd be worried.....
