If you didnt have the crank ground or the rods resized and over sized bearings instaled then the issue with your engine is beyond advice other than remove engine and rebuild correctly as there is too much clearance and the oil cannot build enough pressure especialy when hot as it thins out and becomes harder to maintain pressure.Your problem is crankshaft bearings have excessive clearances or oil pumps pressure relief valve is jammed/jamming.good luck and hope its just the pump.

it needs a rebuild! valve seals and piston rings are bad!! black smoke is rich fuel and carbon. blue smoke is oil burning(which should never be present) and white smoke is water/coolant.

I have blue smoke coming out of the exhaust of my 1998 dodge caravan


Blue smoke is usually an indication of bad rings, which allows engine oil to be burned as you drive. The fix requires engine teardown, pulling off the heads, removing the oil pan, and removing the crankshaft, rods, and pistons. The cylinders may need to be bored, but at the least they will need cleaned up with a hone. The old rings taken off and new rings istalled. If the engine needed bored, then new pistons must be installed. Then, put it all back together.

Hope this helps you

Burning oil


Most of the time, when you first start your engine and it smokes, then the smoking slows down after the engine gets hot; this is a sign of valve seals, because the seals get softer when they are hot and re-seal themselves. If your car smokes all the time, hot or cold this is sign of bad oil rings, because of the oil being forced up past the oil rings, into the cylinder.
