Question about 2000 BMW 3 Series
IM GETTING BLUE SMOKE RUHING FROM EXHAUST.DRINKING OIL MORE THAN USALL. SPEED IS FINE.HAD A NEW TURBO 2 YRS AGO. ANYONE CAN HELP PLEASE
Blue smoke is a sign that oil is being burnt in the combustion process. It is normally a sign of high engine mileage. Definately a compression test would be in order to try to pinpoint the cause. In addition to high mileage it could be something like a broken piston ring or a valve not seating properly. It might also be possible that you turbo has a bad seal and is putting oil into the air as it spins. This problem should definately be looked into soon. Hope this helps.
