Blue smoke come from burning oil.  This means that you have an oil leak somewhere that it is getting burned up and exiting the muffler.  First thing I would do would be to check your engine oil level.  After you are sure that it is good, I would suggest taking the vehicle to a mechanic to have them see if they can find where the leak is.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Why is my 2000 kia sephia blowing blue smoke from the tailpipe. it has 86,000 miles. the check oil warning light is on even though the dipstick reads full.


The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. This is most frequently seen in older or high mileage cars with worn seals and gaskets. It only requires a very small amount of oil leaking into the cylinders to cause excessive blue exhaust smoke.

Blue exhaust smoke only at start-up can indicate worn piston seals or damaged or worn valve guides which may also cause a rattling noise. An external engine oil leak can drip onto hot engine and exhaust parts causing what appears to be blue exhaust smoke. Other possible causes of blue exhaust smoke include: piston wear, worn valve seals, a dirty or non-functioning PCV valve, worn piston rings, an intake manifold gasket leak, worn engine oil seals and possibly even head gasket failure.

Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. In addition, a reduction in power and oil loss can be indicators that the blue exhaust smoke is caused by an internal engine oil leak. Internal engine oil leaks can also allow fuel to mix with the oil in the crankcase which will degrade the oil and prevent it from adequately protecting the engine.

Operating a car with a severely dirty oil filter, air filter or improperly functioning PCV valve can also sometimes result in engine oil blow-by, oil loss and blue exhaust smoke. Periodically checking the engine oil level with the oil dip stick will indicate if there is excessive oil consumption. Higher viscosity engine oil can sometimes temporarily reduce the amount of blow-by; however, this is not generally recommended. Excessive blue exhaust smoke indicates a possible internal engine oil leak that should be inspected by an ASE certified mechanic.

Car kicks out smoke after siting at a red light


Blue Smoke-- is Oil

White smoke -- is Coolant

There are many possibilities there,none too
hopeful, as to a fix

Oil is going where it shouldn't & will be near
impossible to find out why

Are you sure it is not just an oil leak onto the exhaust
& burning off

Chrysler grand voyeger has blue sh smoke coming out of exhaust using more fuel ???


Blue smoke is engine oil burning in the combustion chamber. White smoke would be coolant and black smoke is too much fuel. Try replacing the spark plugs to get better fuel mileage, they are most likely fouled due to oil burning.

Blue smoke go out my car in the morning when engine begin to work


Normally it is the valve seals. They allow oil to leak from the valve cover area to the cylinder. When the car is started it will burn off the oil and cause the smoke. There are other issues that could cause this.

Smoke comeing from exsost


You have a blown headgasket, cracked cylinder head, cracked block only if the color of the smoke is a constant white...requires extensive tests compression etc.
if uits blue in color you have oil passing the rings and out the exhaust valeves on the exhaust stroke, possible collapsed oil rings or valve guide stem seals and knerling ...requirements machinist work.
Momentary cold start white smoke can be normal residual condensation that clears rapidly after start up, blue intial smoke on only the start up after sitting for hours is signs of valve guide wear to be done by a machine shop.

Blue smoke


sorry to say blue smoke is oil and with what you've described sounds like the oil rings on the pistons have given up the ghost, time for a new engine or a rebuild sorry for the bad news. valve stem seals are the only other thing that will cause exhaust smoke but only when you first start the car never while running. hope i have been of some assistance.

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
