I think you have a blown engine cylinder head gasket or gaskets and or a cracked cylinder head or heads. Any qualified auto tech can confirm this guess is the the problem. Do not attempt any repairs until a shop has looked into the problem.

SOURCE: engine blowing oil from oil filler cap

I had the same problem. I changed the pcv valve and checked the hose. It still did the same thing. Then I checked the metal tubing that the hose connects to and found it was full of hardened gunk. I sprayed PB Blaster into the tube let it soak for awhile. Then took an old choke cable, put it on a drill and ran it into the tube like a drain snake. It took a while of doing this over and over but eventually got it cleared out. Now, no more oil all over the engine and hood compartment.

SOURCE: Sluggish performance and engine light - added new plugs and oil

You need to check for engine codes to see what is wrong. Bring it to a parts store for a free scan for codes. The check engine light indicates a problem, probably the emissions system, which is causing the poor performance. The parts store will plug a hand held scan tool into the cars diagnostic port (usually located under the dash) and 'read' any codes stored in the cars computer. They can them tell you what code #'s come up, what they mean, and how to correct the problem. If you have any questions after that, post them here w/ the code #;s for further help.

Oil keeps getting into the breather changed pc valve hoses and filters


check sump oil level--excessive oil level will cause this
have a compression test done on the engine (both wet and dry) to determine engine condition---excessive blow by from worn rings , bore or cracked piston will cause this --- clean/ replace air filter as if there is a low pressure area after the filter , it helps suck oil vapor from the sump

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.

I have a 5L-E toyota hilux that runs fine at idle yhen when you rev it to about 2000 rpm it starts to blow alot of white smoke. I have cut injectors out while the smoke is blowing with no noticable...


i believe the engine is running too lean as if it was running too rich it would blow black smoke If it was blue smoke it is oil related eg valve stem seals,valve guides and or piston rings all of these things will create blue smoke if one of the above is worn out

2008 6.4 f350. blowing tons of blue smoke for the last 12 months


Blue smoke means burning oil. Black smoke means running too rich (too much fuel in the air/fuel mix). If it is blue smoke:
If it blows blue smoke only shortly after starting, it means oil is leaking into the cylinders from above, through the valves. This us typical of older engines, and can be repaired without removing the engine from the truck (although it is still expensive). A 2008 should not have this kind of problem.
If it blows blue smoke all the time, it is bad piston rings or scored cylinder walls. Oil is leaking from below up into the cylinders. This is bad news - any solution will require removing the engine from the truck and complete disassembly (i.e. a rebuild). No engine oil treatment will make it go away, regardless of what the label says.
It is very, very rare in modern engines for a well maintained vehicle with less than 100K miles to need a rebuild. Damage such as this usually comes from not changing oil AND the oil filter often enough. 3-4000 miles for conventional oil or 6-8000 miles for synthetics. If using synthetic, be sure to get a high quality filter designed to be effective for the synthetic oil change interval.

00 ford focus wagon a/c & engine smoke problem


Engine smoke problem-- Automatic, chk transmodulator. If oil in vacuum line, modulator is defective. Engine sucking up trans fluid. 10.00 fix . good indicator is smoking at cruising speed or deceleration.
Bad rings smoke under acceleration and bad valve guides smoke on deceleration. poor crankcase ventilation (pcv valve) will cause engine leaks and oil blowing out of dipstick. Good Luck

Oil in the air filter


Well this this will be you valve cover gaskets leaking. Try to feel around or look to see if there is fresh oil around the valve cover. Oil being sucked in to the air filter is a sure sign of a leak in your engine compartment. Check your oil levels also. Hope this helped.

1999 Nissan Sentra oil in air filter


First off, nothing "blows" into the air filter. It would be getting sucked in from somewhere in your engine compartment. My guess would be leaking valve cover. Check around and feel for wet oil. That will also be a leak. Have you been going through more oil than usual? Check that also. Hope that helped.
