Question about 2002 Isuzu Axiom

1 Answer

My 02 axiom goes through oil too.

I have not seen any oil leaks or smoke. You suggested an additive. What sorta of additive? I have just recently started using 10/40 instead of 5/30 oil.

I also have an pinging (like when your not getting enough gas) it only seems to do so in the warmer months and not through the winter. Would there be something I can do for that as well? My little 02 axiom has 132,000 miles and is a good car. Any advise would be helpful. Thank you.

Use 10w30 oil. The heavy oil 10w40 will cause the pinging due to the hydraulic cam advance oil valve control. It is not uncommon for these motors to use oil between changes according to the isuzu rep. Have you changed the pcv valve? How much oil is it using? reply

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.

Blowing blue smoke on light quick acceleration on a toyota corolla 1990 after oil change oil level is normal


It sounds like your engine is burning engine oil. Depending how severe this problem may be , keep checking your oil level often. You may want to try an additive called ``NO SMOKE`` by Bardhall. It`s the only additive that actually works and the only additive I would suggest to buy. I don`t have confidence on many additives sold on shelves but I`ve used it and seen it work.

04 isuzu axiom oil burning


If your are reaching 4500 rpm, your'e working it pretty hard.
Have you checked the PCV system(including the air filter)?
Many engines in recent production are using very low viscosity oil and have lower standards for oil control.
Some manufacturers are responding that there are no set specifications for oil consupmtion.
You might try changing the oil and using the highest viscosity your owners manual permits.
Keep check frequently, add oil as needed, it's cheaper than rebuilding.

I have an 02 axiom and it burns oil like crazy.I have to put a qt


Most if not all Isuzu's consume oil due to them having a smaller ring size. The result is Blow-By, where the oil is burned internally and gets past the rings. It shows no visible sign of smoking, but does leave a lot of carbon build up within your engine, I recommend using Seafoam, found at most auto part stores. Use half a can with a warm engine, through your vacuum line on your brake booster. and the rest can be used in your fuel!

Oil consumption, no smoke, no leaks


Yes a crappy PVC valve can cause some of your problems but not necessarily all of them, they are cheap, I always replace it to start. The air cleaner housing being full of oil is like how the oil is being consumed. In addition to a PVC valve, there may also be a blow-by hose running into the housing. check to see what other hoses go into the housing & which ones have oil coming from them. I'm not familiar with the "Motor Honey" you mentioned but I rarely add additives to my Engine oil, especially if they are thickeners. The only stuff I recommend is a Quaker state or similar "High Mileage Oil". These semi-synthetic oils have additives to swell old rubber & cork seals in older engines and can help reduce oil consumption & leakage. Again, it may not be a total solution, but it couldn't hurt to drain out all of the existing oil & replace with a high mileage type & also change the filter at the same time. Never mix it with other oils, despite the manufacturer telling you it may be safe to do so.

My acura legend smokes if it stays in park for a while or if im at a stop light and start going it starts somking


It sound like you have oil leaking past the rings on your pistons. This is cause by normal wear and tear. You can tell for sure by taking the oil filler cap off while your engine is running. If smoke comes out, this is the problem. I would suggest going to your local parts store, they will help you find an oil additive to fix the problem.

Black smoke on start up


Do a motor flush before the next oil change.
This will free up the rings and regain some of the lose compression.

If it's the org. engine it will has over 90,000 miles on it.

Did you do the 75,000 timing belt change?

It's normal to has the valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals.

It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.
This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.
