Question about 1991 Ford Escort
Ford escort when starts blows blue smoke
Most generally when an engine smokes on start up it is a sign of worn valve guide seals.If this engine has over 150,000 miles on it and/or it has ever been overheated it is very possible that the valve guides themselves may have escessive clearance and are the cause of the valve seal leak.These vehicles have a history of cylinder head problems and if this is determined to be the problem, the only true repair for it is to have the cylinder head rebuilt or replaced.This process can cost upwards of $900.00 to $1,200.00 to do so you might just put up with the problem until it become unbareable. Always be sure to keep the engine oil full and changed on regular interval of 3 mos/ 3,000 miles and use Lucas oil stabilizer to help minimize the oil useage .
