Hello. Blue smoke on start up is usually an indication that the valve seals are bad and need to be replaced. Since your Honda is an 83 and may have a lot of miles on it, be prepared for the possibility that the engine does or will soon need an overhaul. Regards, Joe

2000 Cadillac DeVille running rich city exhaust engine runs great uses boil it but doesn't burn have a blue oil leaves white smoke what could be the problem with it?


Running rich burns black smoke.

Burning oil, burns blue smoke.

Burning white smoke is steam and can be indicative of a damaged head gasket, or just weather conditions. Fuel contains water at molecular level.

I have a 5L-E toyota hilux that runs fine at idle yhen when you rev it to about 2000 rpm it starts to blow alot of white smoke. I have cut injectors out while the smoke is blowing with no noticable...


i believe the engine is running too lean as if it was running too rich it would blow black smoke If it was blue smoke it is oil related eg valve stem seals,valve guides and or piston rings all of these things will create blue smoke if one of the above is worn out

Need help 83 TRANSAM puffing blue smoke


Blue smoke means Oil is burning. You could have a bad seal on one ore more of the valves, bad rings or burnt valve. Usually if it smike right after you start it and then dies down that pints to a bad valve seal, then tend to warm up asnd start sealing better and oil also gets into the cylinders when they set overnight and thus the blue smoke when you start it. very common on older engines and your being an 83 it could be any one of the above casues. Try some of the motor treatments for oil using engines at the parts store. these help the seals be more flexible and help seal better. Other wise you may need a rebuild to get it to stop.
