Blue smoke out of car exhaust?
    #4476650 - 07/31/05 10:13 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Heard it's probably an oil problem, been advised to get thicker oil (20/50)

Is it a "big" problem?

Only had a small amount being emitted from the exhaust when i sped off the other day.

Its an old car - 1993

smell it.
if it smells really sweet, & irritates the eyes
then it could be a cracked/warped head or gasket. (radiator fluid is leaking into your barrels)

Probably oil. Could be something cheap, like just getting thicker oil (may not be a good idea if you live in a cold climate, the oil could thicken up too much in the winter).

Or you could have some leaking gaskets, which would be a little more expensive to fix :frown:

more than likely a seal is bad and your burning oil. Sure you can put thicker oil in it, but thats not solving the problem.

Or it could just be a worn engine and the oil is getting past the piston rings. Does your car have a lot of miles on it?

the possible causes could be worn valve seals, worn oil control ring (piston
rings) or it simply could be dumping too much fuel into the engine, that actualy
could be caused by a number of other problems, it's difficult to diagnose it
over the net but you can pull the spark plugs (one at a time so you dont fuck up
the firing order) and compare them to a chart like this in order to determine
if it's related to fuel or oil.
