SOURCE: RENAULT LAGUNA 2.2DCI 2003 MODEL EXCESS CRANKCASE PRESSURE

This is quite a common problem,especially with the 2.2 dci engine,although as usual Renault wont admit the problem.The reason your engine throws the oil after a run and not when stationary is this problem is caused by the turbo pressurising the crankcase.You can rev the engine all day but when theres no load on it then the turbo is not working at full pressure and all is well.
The cure for the problem is to fit a new rocker cover which incorporates part of the inlet manifold.The breathing system on these engines is complicated and the rocker cover has to handle both inlet gases AND exhaust gases and although no one can explain why a new cover cures it,I suspect the plastic the cover is made of is not robust enough and either becomes porous or warped and this allows gases into the crankcase,pressurising it and focing oil out either through the dipstick or it blows out the blanking plug in the timing cover.
It is not a massive job to replace the rocker cover as long as the injectors come out easily.If they dont then youre in real trouble.Good luck,Duncan.

SOURCE: 1990 ford 460 (carburetor) using excessive oil.

If inside of carb is getting oiled down, first place to look is at the pcv valve replace it and check supply line for vacuum. If nothing is leaking substantially with the engine running, A quart every 60 miles is way out of range and most likely from worn piston rings. Valve guides will contribute to this but would need to be worn severely for oil consumption as you indicate. If you are building internal pressure with pcv in place and working, rings are 99% sure to be worn and in need of replacement. (id do all bearings as well or replace engine.) Obviously i'm here, you are there so have a competent shop verify anything before spending $ on repair!!!
Hope this helps!!!

SOURCE: engine burning oil no oil leak little smoke

oil leaks are hard to identify by the blue smoke that you used to see. most of this smoke is burned up by the catalytic converter. at least until all of that oil plugs the converter up. you can tell if your burning oil by removing the spark plugs, and checking their appearance against diagnostic charts redily available on the internet. oil burning will leave a distinctive residue.

Welcome to Fixya
Error 41 is the butterfly spindle in the intake manifold just below where the hose from the intercooler joins. It should be open when engine running if it is closed it will cause boost issues and running problems.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Why is my 2000 kia sephia blowing blue smoke from the tailpipe. it has 86,000 miles. the check oil warning light is on even though the dipstick reads full.


The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. This is most frequently seen in older or high mileage cars with worn seals and gaskets. It only requires a very small amount of oil leaking into the cylinders to cause excessive blue exhaust smoke.

Blue exhaust smoke only at start-up can indicate worn piston seals or damaged or worn valve guides which may also cause a rattling noise. An external engine oil leak can drip onto hot engine and exhaust parts causing what appears to be blue exhaust smoke. Other possible causes of blue exhaust smoke include: piston wear, worn valve seals, a dirty or non-functioning PCV valve, worn piston rings, an intake manifold gasket leak, worn engine oil seals and possibly even head gasket failure.

Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. In addition, a reduction in power and oil loss can be indicators that the blue exhaust smoke is caused by an internal engine oil leak. Internal engine oil leaks can also allow fuel to mix with the oil in the crankcase which will degrade the oil and prevent it from adequately protecting the engine.

Operating a car with a severely dirty oil filter, air filter or improperly functioning PCV valve can also sometimes result in engine oil blow-by, oil loss and blue exhaust smoke. Periodically checking the engine oil level with the oil dip stick will indicate if there is excessive oil consumption. Higher viscosity engine oil can sometimes temporarily reduce the amount of blow-by; however, this is not generally recommended. Excessive blue exhaust smoke indicates a possible internal engine oil leak that should be inspected by an ASE certified mechanic.

Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a fuel odor. How did the fuel get into the cylinder in the first place? Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that is out of adjustment, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a faulty engine computer or computer sensor. If black smoke is present, check the engine oil as in the white smoke example to make sure excess fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Call your mechanic and advise him of what you have found. I hope this helps you determine what could be causing your engine smoke

I have a mitsubishi 4D56 Engine ( Hyundai ) - which blew a head gasket. We removed and recon'd head and re fitted. We fitted new rings. The engine is now pushing oil out the breather. What is causing this?


If you put new piston rings in the engine without doing anything to the cylinders themselves, you most likely have a sealing problem between the rings and the cylinder walls. This will cause blowby and pressurize the crankcase causing the problem. Also check for a clogged PCV valve.

Have a 2007 mitsubishi L200 4D56 command rail engine that will not run. The only way I can make this engine run is to unplug the pressure sensor located on the end of the fuel rail. Even then, it will only...


In your case the pressure sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced. 1) Stores pressurized fuel (25 to 180 MPa) that has been delivered from the supply pump and distributes the fuel to each cylinder injector. A rail pressure sensor and a pressure limiter valve are adopted in the rail. 2) The rail pressure sensor (Pc sensor) detects fuel pressure in the rail and sends a signal to the engine ECU, and the pressure limiter controls the excess pressure. This ensures optimum combustion and reduces combustion noise. ---- Rail • The rail is mounted between the supply pump and the injector, and stores the high-pressure fuel. --------- Injector:-------- • This injector replaces the conventional injection nozzle, and achieves optimal injection by effecting control in accordance with signals from the engine ECU. Signals from the engine ECU determine the duration and timing in which current is applied the injector. This in turn, determines the quantity, rate and timing of the fuel that is injected from the injector. ------------ Rail Pressure Sensor (Pc Sensor) 1) The pressure sensor detects the fuel pressure of the rail, and sends a signal to the engine ECU. The sensor is made from a semiconductor that uses the Piezo resistive effect to detect changes in electrical resistance based on the pressure applied to the elemental silicon. In comparison to the old model, this sensor is compatible with high pressure. ---------- There is a service manual for how the fuel rail sensor and fuel system works.Its for mitsubishi L200 4D56.----------- Click this link for referring the service manual:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/service-manual-for-mitsubishi-l200-4d56.html ----------- This should help.thanks.Helpmech.

Black smoke indicates no air, check your air filter, if you have done that and it is ok, check the PCV valve. Thats about all that I can suggest. Hope that helps.

4d56 engine high fuel consumption


4d56 is a diesel engine, fuel, oil, air filter change definitely, regular oil change, check tyre pressure, etc all basic things u can do yourself, after all its no 40+ MPG modern diesel engine its been around for years and years and being used in courier van, pajero and delica, i have a Delica with 4D56 turbo and its loves drinking diesel like no tomorrow, run it on veggie oil like i do you wont worry too much about your fuel consumption.

Mitsubishi L200 overheating


i have an l200 animal, i started getting the same symptoms, bubbling noises, over heating, water being discharged into the header tank, i had a good look around the engine,there was no oil in the water or water in the oil ( signs of head gasket failure) when the radiator cap was off and i revved hard nothing happened, no dip in water levels and no splashing out. i took the water pump off and the impellor had sheered off the shaft. fitted a new pump and its been fine, maybe all these cracked cylinder heads and warped heads are to do with the engine being run with the fault not being cured.

Black smoke from exhaust


hi nishga
im dave; hope i can help

First you need to determine if it is actually black smoke or if it is blue smoke. There are three colors of smoke that can come from the tailpipe. It is not white smoke obviously because that is easily differentiated from blue or black and generally indicates water or antifreeze leaking past the head gasket and into the compression area of the motor. White smoke is the steam of the water/antifreeze being emitted

Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with 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. The car has many seals, gaskets, and o-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plugs, it will cause a misfire(engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be completely burned. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich". Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a heavy fuel odour in the engine compartment. Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that is out of adjustment which is not likely unless you have installed an aftermarket carburated system on your non-carburated car, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a faulty engine computer or emissions sensor. If black smoke is present, check the engine oil to make sure excess fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Check the above mentioned systems and after detecting the trouble replace the faulty parts and then the engine oil and filter.
