ATF in Engine Oil??

hey yall
so, we all know that our engines burn oil. I came across the idea of adding a small amount of ATF to the engine oil because it acts as a detergent and could help to break down all the crap and clean the piston rings that could be causing oil being burnt. i think its a pretty good idea, however, the concern is that by now, the engine being old (having 248,000 kms), is that tiny bits of debris that could be in those rings or between them could be helping to provide the seal between them and the cylinder wall. so if i was to clean that up by adding ATF, i might get rid of that crap but open up the possibility for a loss of compression and blow by in the cylinders. what do yall think? sorry if i haven't made this very clear.. ask me any questions if you aren't clear.

that's like adding seafoam....which helps with high mileage motors. However, I would just stick with seafoam.
