When you say "engine oil burning" it is not  quite specific. In every internal combustion engine - from brand new to used - there is some degree of engine oil burning. However, as a rule of thumb, in between services if you need to add more than 1/2 L of engine oil then it is a concern. If that is the case first thing to do is to do a compression test to determine if the issue is due to worn out piston rings or due to leaky valve guides. If it is due to valve guides you can get them replaced. But still depending on the age of the engine you may have to go for a full overhaul. I do not see a point in replacing the engine with a reconditioned one. If the  compression test fails go for a complete overhaul.
