Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Had stem valve seals done, piston rings replaced, oil & filter, and still smoking?? tech would did the work said it will burn oil for a while to continue using the car and should clear??/ is this true, or any other possible cures please, thank you,.
When your engine is running oil is circulating through it to lubricate the moving parts. When you shut off the engine the oil will pool in the top and drain back to the bottom via oil passages. The oil is hot and flows freely back into the oil pan. The engine and all of the parts are hot (remember metal expands when heated).
A small bit of leakage could be running into the cylinders while the car is cooling off. Could be caused by worn valve seats or valve guides. There will be some oil usage during the break in process of a rebuilt engine, but I think you are experiencing oil burn off. Don't be afraid to get a second opinion.
