Do you mean the piston rings? Did you have this problem before the work? What is ref? If piston rings then check compression. Ring gaps need to be staggered.

Low power, blue smoke, engine cutting


blue smoke indicates oil is burning in the cylinders. This is either leaky valve seals, (little blue smoke when engine first starts, but stops smoking shortly after) or the worse problem, worn rings. What happens is when your rings are worn, they let oil get past the rings and into the combustion chamber, AND it also lets out your combustion pressure (your power source) into the crankcase, so you have considerable power loss. Only way to fix worn rings is to rebuild the engine, as just replacing the rings would require complete teardown of engine anyways, and who wants new rings in a worn out motor.

My 97 honda accord is blowing white smoke and running rough then i went to start it now it wont start


Sounds like either a blown motor (rings need replaced) or a bad head gasket or cracked head.
If the rings are bad your car would have felt like it was losing power because the engine will no longer have the same high compression that it's required to turn the wheels. You may have heard your engine knocking or seen a light blue colored smoke coming from your exhaust as a result of your engine burning up oil in the combustion chamber from the rings leaking.
If your head gasket is leaking or your head is cracked you'd likely find milky looking oil when you drain your oil from water/antifreeze being mixed in and noticed a white smoke coming from your exhaust that is actually water vapor coming through the exhaust.
If your car was running rough when you last shut it off try pulling all of your spark plugs and either cleaning them or replacing them all. A bad head gasket or bad rings can both foul spark plugs. A car will run rough with 1 or 2 fouled plugs, but once enough foul it will no longer run at all just sit and crank over. If changing the plugs get's it started for ya, check your tailpipe first for water, if nothing, change your oil. If no signs of water/antifreeze or milky colored oil then it's probably rings.

I had my oil changed last Saturday and the car didn't have oil in tuesday u put 2 quarts in and saturday no oil what's going on?


Hi, obviously you have a major oil leak, if it was'nt leaking before the oil change, I would say the oil pan bolt wasnt tightened right or they stripped it out, or the oil filter isnt tight or they left old gasket/o-ring on the oil filter mount causing the leak. I would take it back to where you got the oil changed and demand they fix the issue (free of course)....Mike

BLUE SMOKE FROM AUDI RS6 ON DE ACCELERATION AND START UP THINK OIL STEM SEALS ARE LETTING OIL THROUGH. CAR RUNS FINE I THINK, AND EXCESSIVE BUILD UP OF OIL IN DRIVER SIDE TURBO PIPE, 62000 MILES WITH A...


General rules of thumb: Low speed engine on acceleration with smoke in the exhaust plume = worn piston rings High speed engine accelerating (spooled up turbo) with smoke = oil form turbo bearing and/or piston rings Engine on over run (coasting down, foot off the gas) with smoke = oil from valve guides. VW/Audi make good engines with tight tolerances so none of the above should apply at 62K miles; just make sure that the oil (the right oil) and oil filter are changed regularly.

hi check the oil level first and make sure the level is high enough then check your coolant level
is ok sounds like it has dropped there can be problems if the oil filter has been changed recently also if the sealing 'o' ring isnt correctly installed
