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.
