Question about 1997 Suzuki Sidekick
When i start my car a bad smell and a blue smoke commes out
blue smoke that lingers is burned oil !
if it goes away like moms tea both that is STEAM. (WATER)
You fail to say where you saw it (sure on car) but where.
the G16s all love to leak distrib oil, (not mine)
and it lands on the exhaust headers, parked. and smokes from THERE not the tail pipe end,
why not post a photo of the smoke? 1trillion cell cams and no posters ever post photos here. why is that?
my boat always smokes, but not my G16.
when the boat stinks like G16s sticks and smoke same why
(cold only and started) and only at tail end.
then that means the valve guides are worn, and seals too.
most folks ignore it this until overhaul time.
but im blind, can see car or drive it, and if could, answers can be
totally 100% different.
why ask the blind to diagnose a car? really?
ask a real mech that can drive it. and WIN !

Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer cars with fewer miles.
This could mean a cracked head or bad gasket....It costly
