Question about 1993 Nissan Pickup
1993 nissan p.u., twd, 2.4. It seems that rather suddenly my truck has began to burn oil at idol. If I idol for 30 seconds or more i see a lot of blue smoke when i take off. I have never hot rodded my truck . I make regular oil changes but because it has continued to run great for 250,000 miles I have only changed plugs on occasion and the air filter once or twice. Until lately this truck has preformed just great. never a problem. I have noticed that on hwy trips it burns about one quart in 1000 miles . I see no indication of oil being forced out off the dip stick.
Any suggestions! Paul
You have got valve stem clearance or valve stem seal issues You can change the seals yourself with a few special tools and a manual. The stems are another story. They require machine shop equipment and removal of the head/heads.I would try the seals first. A four cylinder would take an average handy guy about 4 hours.
