How Can I Pay Down A Car Loan Faster Without Making Double Monthly Payments

I have 5 years of payments left on a car I hate. I cant afford to make more than one monthly payment on it but is there anything I can do to make it so it wont actually take me 5 years to pay it off? Meaning, is there any “rule” saying (for example) if I pay an extra $10.00 a month, that will shave a year off the length of the loan? Just using that as an example of course.
