Ive noticed some stuttering while getting up to speed, i have 177K miles on a 89 xj, so i figured id start cheep and change the feul filter which was 16 years old. no change. I had a day off today and decided to do a few simple check ups on the car... plugs and wires all good belt tight, checked fluids and put in half quart of oil... ive been going through a bit of oil latley but havent noticed any new oil patches on the drive way. when i checked the air filter i found all the oil i was missing... ive been told its blowback form the piston rings... how hard is this to fix, and is it even the prob.. im new to engine rebuild, and only 17 years old, dont get me wrong ive done a lot of work but i dunno about a over haul... fuel injectors fuel filter, plugs, wiper blade assembly, front end u joints, stearing damper, the lis goes on.. is it some thing i should even attempt. thanks in advance for your help

It called blowby and it's pretty easy to fix.
