SOURCE: puffs blue smoke

Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the 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.

This could mean a cracked head or bad gasket....It costly

SOURCE: Suzuki GV burns oil

valve seals will not cause this kind of oil consumption, a scocred cylinder wall or broken piston ring will, not sure on the head gasket, does it have a combustion gases present in the radiator surge tank or bubbles while running? if not the head gasket is probaly ok.

SOURCE: blue smoke on startup when removing intake

You have worn out piston rings. Excessive blow-by gases goes to the valve train compartment where the PCV valve sucks it into the intake manifold.

My 2002 volvo s40 1.9 T smokes really bad its bluish in color, it seems to smoke more when at a stop. its burning oil...

Blue smoke is often the result of bad rings on the pistons. Engine rebuild time. It is possible that the turbo is leaking oil into your engine.

Bows white smoke when starting

White smoke means water(antifreeze) is getting into the combustion chamber. A bad intake or head gasket could b the problem but it should smoke all the time. Worn valve stem seals however will cause smoking on initial startup then quit, but the smoke will b light blue. If indeed smoke is white, pull spark plugs one at a time & look for heavy white crust on end of plug, if so that cylinder is getting water in it. Do that to all plugs. Re torquing head or manifold may help but if its high milage almost def need gasket. Heads warp also in that case the head must b milled flat. Valve stem seals can b replaced with head on in some cases by introducing air into cylinder to keep valve from falling into cylinder when keepers are removed. Hope this clears things up a lil.

Hi I got a Toyota corolla 160i gle and it was parked very long so wen i started it wen ideling no smoke BT wen hit da fuel it smokes and on take off BT wen driving it does nt smoke

Generally, it may smoke on startup for a few seconds then quit and seem to run fine, then you hit the gas and it smokes again, so Is it white smoke gray smoke or blue smoke? Because IMO it's either a bad head gasket, bad valve guides, rings are going bad ot dumping to much fuel into carb or injectors.

Audi A4 B6 1.8T puffing off blue smoke and losing power.

Check immediately the turbocharger! DO NOT START THE ENGINE WITH THIS KIND OF PROBLEM!
Remove the air inlet axial center hose of the turbocharger, in other words the compressor air inlet hose. Then check axial & radial gaps of the turbocharger rotor.
Check also the turbocharger oil pressure supply. Check the engine oil level also.
Repair & replace bad pieces.
In the most cases the turbocharger is out of order when engine puffing off blue smoke and losing power.

Smoke comes out of the tailpipe when first

60,000 miles or so depending on the engine but if its blue smoke which it means its oil burning its sounds like valve guide seals.

My 99 volvo xc is blowing thick white, bluish

This is not good. White smoke is usually coolant, but the deposits on the plugs indicates oil related issue. Major exploritory surgery is in your future.

Start with a leak down test, and based on the results of that, your next step will be more clear.

Sorry for the bad news, but you already knew that, with the smoke report.

Smoke from exhaust when decelerating on Ford F-350 Powerstroke

Either valve stem seals are leaking or the turbo oil seal is leaking.
