Blue smoke on cold start

Hi there, i have recently purchased my car with 58000 miles on it & have noticed a little blue smoke on cold start. It doesn't do it all the time. Some days there is nothing & some days there's a puff of smoke. Whenever it does smoke,it clears very quickly & runs fine.I have been told by a mechanic that it could be the valve stem seals :(. I still have a little bit of warranty left & the dealer is trying to fob me off with some **** about the glow plugs being faulty. Please could you help ? kind regards Richard

If it is using no more that a quart of oil per 3,000 miles it is normal. If using more that that, the engine is likely worn. You can have a mechanic perform both a wet and dry compression test , on you engine, to know for sure. The cost should be about the cost of a tune up. The spark plugs could be changes at the same time. if they show wear.

SOURCE: starting problem

If its a 2005 it will be common rail, so you have to be carefull when dealing with this engine. The common rail has extremely high pressures which can harm you, also the fuel injectors are capacitor discharged and are high voltage. Now thats aside, look at the high pressure pump at the front of engine. If the code on it ends in 018 then its fed by an electrical fuel pump. These fuel pumps can fail. if it has another number then the HPP draws its own fuel. The symptoms are air ingress into the fuel lines, causing the fuel to run back to the tank. Its probably worse in cold weather due to the contraction of the fuel pipes in the cold. Check all fast fit connections for security. A trick is to put grease on the connections, it wont last long but might give you an idea where the leak is.

SOURCE: Dashboard fault

I too have a Peugeot 206 - and has given me nothing but grief - mostly electrical.

The fact you are suddenly losing systems, and draining battery points to a short in the wiring loom - which is a common fault on pugs.

I advise you trace the wire from the rear heater to the fusebox (it's labeled in there). Use a cheap multimeter - pull the fuse out and check the wiring both to the heater (resistance to good earth) and the supply( check for 12V )with the switch on. You may end up undoing the loom cover in the engine bay - but check your feet area first for any damaged wires. Try wiggling the loom with the ignition switch on and in neutral to find the problem. Often just taping it up properly solves it.

Hi, I have a 2008 Ford fucas with 40,000 miles do not it much the other day I noticed white smoke from my exhaust with a little wet looking then it quit do i need to drive my down the freeway?


A little white/blue smoke at startup is usually an indication of valve seals leaking a little. If it's only at startup and goes away, it's not a big problem - keep an eye on the oil level in the crankcase (dipstick).

If it's dense white smoke, and continues for up to a minute or so (or longer), you may be getting coolant into the cylinders - head gasket or worse problems. If this is the case, you may want to have it checked for contamination of the coolant by exhaust products.

Hi There,, with regards to the blue smoke when starting the engine from cold but none when warmed up, it could be the valve stem guide oil seals. you may need to remove the cylinder head and lap the valves in again but it should last you another 100,000 miles.

Losing oil, no visible leaks. 120,000 miles


Hm. In my experience if you lose oil at the rate of 1 qt. per 800 mi. it's going somewhere. Actually, if you lose 1 qt. per 1000 mi. and change your oil every 3,000 mi. it's under $10 in oil you have to buy to keep it topped off, and some places say that's there's nothing wrong.

But, your case is a little more serious.

I think that it's probably leaking past the rings and/or valves and the catalytic converter is eating up the oil, so you see no blue smoke, like you would in a car that has no converter (I'm assuming you have a catalytic converter on your car as my 1981 Honda had).

After 100,000 mi. little irregularities in the piston cylinders can develop, and seals can gradually degrade. So, this is normal for that kind of mileage, although there are people who get over 400,000 mi. on their cars with just regular maintenance and driving highway mi.

You might want to try one of those slower burn oils designed for cars with 75,000 mi. and above. That might slow the burn off of oil down to acceptable levels.

Good luck with it.

TDI GOLF that has a hard start and white smoke


Sounds like the heater plugs, and as its quite cold it will take longer to heat up, have you tried giving it one heat light then turn the ignition off again, then do it again 3 times in total then try to fire it over if it starts quite easy then its your heater plugs. timing shouldnt be out, if it was then it would seem very lumpy even when turning over.

Oil usage Huyndai Santa Fe 2002 (4 cylinder)


If its a petrol motor then they will blow a little white smoke/steam on startup until the exhaust heats up. The engines computer knows that its cold so richens the petrol/air mixture to warm it up faster . You should let it warm a little before driving off or if you can't then don't rev it hard til it starts to warm up. All the parts inside the engine need to get to optimal running temp to wear properly. Most engines wear more on startup then when they have been running for a long time. In regards to smoke blue is bad (oil) black is bad ( to much fuel) and white is usually on startup.

blue smoke is evidence of oil burning and is most likely valve seals. this can be done on most cars with head still on by applying air to the cylinders this keeps valves up while spring is removed
