Honda Accord Burning Oil at 139,000 miles

My 1991 Honda Accord EX began burning oil about 1
year and 10,000 miles ago. Prior to this point it
used no oil and did not smoke. Now it used about a
quart of oil per month and smokes quite a bit.
The smoking is greatest upon application of the
accelerator immediately following in-gear
deceleration (e.g. coasting in gear down a hill).
I took it in for a checkup and the mechanic told me
that the engine was bad. What should I look for
to determine if it's the rings vs. just the valve
guides? I am ready to replace the engine if needed
but would rather fix the immediate problem instead
of paying the big bucks. Ideas? Thanks.
