    On checking following advise gotten from your site and a mechanic friend i informed my mechanic to check the valve guides and found some badly worn which can cause the oil to burn so i am now in the process of changing the guides so i would inform you if that solved the problem.

If you changed rings and valve gaides before you fitted new rings have you check cylinder block?it mybe cylider worn out so it was to rebore engine block and put new piston with new rings.
the ather thing it hapen sometimes when you fitting piston rings, check how piston rings is it should be all piston rings defrent direction inside the piston groves.
Use original parts.

Blue smoke


Blue smoke (how many miles on engine, 50k or 500K???????
to some this means, burning oil, others steam
it that blue smoke lingers a long time that is oil burning
and smells just like oil burning.
and means 2 things,
1: engine burns oil.
2: if car had autotmatic trans the vacuum modulator love fail
and suck ATF fluid to the intake plenum and burn it, and bingo burning oil like mad.
3: PCV valve packed solid,and forces engine to leak oil or burn oil. or both. this is a 50k miles service point, skipping this?
4: gas in the oil making it thin and not sneaks past valve stems.
does oil change cure this.>?

now engines.
worn out engines smoke. (burn oil)
as do bad valve guides and seals.
and bad piston rings.
100 years same story, and miles matter. History on engine too.
matters.

1995 Oldsmobile 88 LSS 3.8 smokes at idle


Valve stem seals. Oil is thicker when cold (hence no smoke when cold) Vlave stem symptoms are when engine at idle (high vacume) oil is pulled through the guide seals, when you take off from lights get bit of smoke until oil is burnt. Ring symtoms is it would be blowing smoke all the time especially at higher rpm for extended time ie: driveing. Have you thought of trying a thicker oil? what oil grade do you currently run?

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze


If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

Why does my car smoke


you have to determine what type of smoke it is, a white smoke is a coolant in exhaust sweet smell problem, a blue smoke is fuel and smells like it and burns eyes, a black smoke is oil, bad rings,valve seals. Stop treating it like a drag car !! HA,HA

Blue smoke is an indication that you are burning oil. This typically happens through the rings on the pistons but can also be caused from valves. If the vehicle is running ok then it is most likely blowing by the rings. The vehicle probably has high miles and the way to stop the blue smoke is replacing the rings which can get very expensive. This does not mean that the vehicle will tear up tomorrow though.

OIl leak in 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo


valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.

rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn

if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.

Toyota 1998 Carib 1.6L using excessive engine oil?? Well maintained and looked after car can't understand y?


Well for starters, that oil has to be going somewhere, obviously.  So most likely it is the piston rings, these wear out over time regardless of how well taken care of your car is.  Check the exhaust out while the car is running, if there is a white-blueish smoke, thats piston rings.  if it is more grey-ish, thats most likely a head gasket, in which case check the coolant overflow for color, and remove the oil filler cap and look on the inside, if you see a nasty looking white film, thats caused by water/coolant in the oil, most likely leaking through a bad head gasket.  Or it may be leaking out somewhere, if there are no puddles it may be leaking near a hot exhaust pipe/manifold and burning off.  
As long as you keep enough oil in it, it should be fine for a few years, just get it fixed eventually.  in the mean time you can also use oil additives to help string things along, ask the rep at your local auto parts store.  hope this helps!
