10w40 still loosing a quartz every 600 miles

So I got semi-synthetic mannoil 10w40 yet I am still loosing oil on my 2010 Sedan. Is there any other thing I should be looking at or should I just move on to 20w50?

Wasn't 20w50 what you were using before?

Your engine could be damaged. Piston ring letting too much oil sip through.

Previous owner was using 20w50 don't know for how long, so I guess I would then continue with that and plan for a change of engine in future

I just bought a new 2020 corolla. It comes with synthetic oil, but to keep the warranty you have to change it every 5000 miles normal or synthetic oil.

My wifeís Camry is 15 years old and has 175,000 miles on it all on regular motor oil. Itís time for a new one to what advantage would using synthetic oil be?

There is a lot of material out there about the pros/cons of synthetics and the basic pros are; better/more additives, last much longer, holds up to stress better but costs much more than conventional. Run what you like for the reasons you like but know that changing brand, composition (additives), quality doesn't make much difference for most production vehicles. Viscosity is incredibly important though so stick to OEM Spec (unless modified, extreme climate or abnormal circumstance.)
Also I'd recommend watching Project Farms (on youtube) oil championship videos, there is a ton of good info in them.

Consumer Reports talks of synthetic oil , https://www.consumerreports.org/car-...l-in-your-car/ . You can get mail in rebates at PENNZOIL , MOBIL1 and other oil company websites . Some take less than a month to receive by mail . PENNZOIL Platinum and FRAM Ultra Synthetic oil filter for both cars .
