Question about 1993 Nissan Pickup

Oil burning at idol

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.

My nissan sentra 2004 model's engine runs out of oil in less than one week.


the only way you lose oil is by burning it or leaking it, if your car blows a lot of blue smoke, then you are burning it {engine rebuild or replace} if there is oil on the ground when you park, then you need to determine where the leak is coming from, pressure wash underneath before taking it to a mechanic, we hate getting under dripping dirty cars. glad to help.

Seems like my car has oil burning, need new Manifold. I would like to know why my car burning this much oil; is there a Manufature recall on these two items?


If there is blue smoke coming out the tail pipe it is burning oil. If there is not blue smoke then it's not burning it would be leaking. And have you checked the oil level? Are you adding oil? if it has smoke in the engine compartment then it could be a intake manifold seal but need more information to help you.

CAR BLOWING BLUE SMOKE FROM TAIL PIPE


Blue smoke indicates burning oil. So you oil getting into your cylinders somehow. Could be broken oil ring on one piston. If you have a lot of miles on your car or it has been overheated your engine may need an overhaul.

worn piston rings produce blue smoke all the time especially under acceleration. time for another rebuild or total replacement.. i am not very familiar with metric but thet is still a lot of miles, replace the rings, or replace the engine, or replace the car. it sounds like it is well worn

Your getting backfires? hmm interesting. Seems like your engine is getting flooded and either purging it out of the exhaust or burning it all at once or both (backfire). Sounds like a leaky engine valve to me.There again the bluish smoke indicates to me thatyou are leaking oil somewhere- bad rings or head gasket maybe, which could cause a loss of compression which could also cause your problems.That rattling from the left/rear side sounds like a bad muffler try kicking the muffler (not hard though) next time you walk by it.
