The oil is seeping past the piston rings, which are apparently worn. You have to replace the piston rings.

1991 Honda Accord, 213k, changed oily sparkplugs and now engine blows excessive smoke and oil continuously out the exaust from start up to shut down.


Old spark plugs were likely fouled with oil and not burning fuel (and oil) completely so minimal smoke before change out. New plugs are clean and burning everything in cylinders well including oil (therefore more smoke). If smoke from exhaust is blue, then engine oil is getting into cylinders either through worn out piston rings, or a leaking gasket. If black smoke, then this is a sign of too much fuel getting into cylinders and not all the fuel is getting burnt during combustion (a fuel system problem).

High HYDROCARBONS on emissions test. I have took my 97 Cabrio to emissions test and failed due to High Hydrocarbons. but states the Catalytic converter is fine. what eles could cause high HC levels?


hi.
first thing to do is change the air filter. even if it appears clean, the airflow can be blocked enough to affect the petrol air ratios in the engine which will give high HC readings.
changing the spark plugs can give a cleaner spark, and better ignition, with lower HCs. high HCs could also be caused by traces of oil getting through worn piston rings and valve stem seals and burning in the combustion chamber. there are many oil additives that can help stop this and reduce HC levels as well.
hope these suggestions help

92 civic engine stalled while driving; fuel pump works; replaced all plugs seeing some oil on old ones. only one plug fires; is coil still working? or the distributor? haven't checked fuel...


Hi,
Check the ignition distributor cap and clean the electric contact points it might be already dirty.

if one has a spark that means your ignition coil is still okay. Remove the whole cap and check the inside part and clean it, use emery board.
Check also the high tension wires( spark plug wires ).
Hope Fixya helps you!

The smell of burning oil is coming out my muffler


You are leaking oil somewhere in the engine and it may be getting into the exhaust. There are a few places it can come out at. It could be leaking around the head, down into the exhaust possibly. Could be a busted seal or at the oil pump.

2001 mitsubishi montero limited light on service engine soon 110000 milege burning smell from engine oil ok transmission oil ok coolant ok


look hard around your valve cover or your spark plugs holes especially #3 and #5. i found mine on 3 and 5 spark plugs. oil sometimes drip down to hot eng and smell like burn oil. possibility your valve cover that seal your spark plug hole is worn out and leak around the valve cover and straight down to hot area. replacing valve cover gasket is not easy and if you take it shop will cost you over $1000.00 because of intake manifold and a lots of hardwares to remove. shop around before you take it to the shop. if you do it your self with a friend make sure you take picture for every lines ,bolts sensor plugs and so on you remove. also may as well tune up or change your spark plugs. good luck

I have oil runing into the cylinders.is this a head gaskit or something biger?


if you mean you are actually burning oil and see smoke out the tail pipe then yes... it is something bigger... you need a head job or ring job

if however, you mean that oil is getting inside where the spark plugs are located then no... this is fairly common with the neon and you need a VALVE COVER set which will include the gaskets for the area around the spark plugs

Nissan altima 2002 burning excesive oil what to


You have to identify where the oil is leaking. Check the spark plugs if it has oil, you may just need to replace the oil seal in the plugs. If you meant actual burning from the exhaust, you may want to check the head gasket and the piston rings if the oil seeps into the combustion chamber.

Sputtering during idle blue smoke


You are burning oil, causing the blue smoke. It is mainly cause by worn piston rings. Also will coat your spark plugs with oily residue. Try an oil additive such as "stop smoke" or another such brand to reduce burning your oil and it may recondition your seal sand stop it all together.
