Blue smoke from any internal combustion engine indicates it's burning oil along with the air/fuel mixture........this can be caused by gaskets or seals. in higher mileage engines it can be caused by worn internal parts

    oil consumption is indicated so oil consumption tes is the least expensive and most revealing test needed here. always check the dealer because they have update info and parts corrections that you dont. there may be a bulletin or ford service message that adresses what to do. or tells what they find in their studies of the engine. this is good to know before condemming anything or using aftermarket parts that may void any warranty it has

Alex, blue smoke means oil is entering into your cylinder heads and getting burned with the fuel. a number of things can cause this. Gasket, valve, valve seals, worn cylinder rings. Does the blue smoke just appears when you start up the ford and then disappears - indication of worn valve seals. Continuous blue smoke indicates worn cylinder rings or gasket. You can have someone do a compression test on each cylinder and see the results. Low compression on any of the cylinders may indicate worn rings or valves. Hope this helps

    first action should be correct oil change. verify correct parts and number of quarts. paint access points to exclude tampering, complete drive cycle, recheck level. operate and monitor. compare findings and readings to judge

Why won't it get out of first gear without smoking?


Smoke from the exhaust? That's an engine problem. Blue? White? Black? Yes, it matters....
Blue likely means rings or valves. (expensive)
white likely means head gasket (coolant invasion)
black likely means fuel problems.

Smoke from engine


Is the smoke white or blue? If white means that you have a leak of water or antifrezze into the combustion chamber. If blue, replace PCV valve, and air filter.
