The oil rings on the pistons may be stuck, gummed up. I would remove the spark plugs and and see if you can find some Combustion Chamber Cleaner or some other type of cleaner that will cut carbon and oil sludge. Put about .5 oz in each cylinder over night and in the morning spin the enigne over a few timers and then replace the plugs and go drive it a few miles. That may get the rings unstuck.

What i am learning with my smoking 1989 b2200is that nothing fixes it unless you do a ring job. there is no quick fix and that doing the valve stem seals is also a waste of time. time for a small block.

Engine smokes after start up for 1-2 min.


Depending on engine mileage, could be bad valve guide seals (high mileage) or PCV system issue. If seals, these can be replaced without removing cylinder heads.

While starting car little smock come for few mnt why ?


If you get a little puff of white/blue smoke just at start up , it probably means that one or more of your valve guide seals are worn.
While engine not running , a bit of oil gets in the cylinder , when it starts the oil burns off causing smoke. If it was smoking all the time , I would say rings are worn. If it is black smoke at start up , it indicates a fuel mixture problem. The valve guide seal problem may get worse over time.
On your post you say " for few mnt " if that means a few moments , than Valve guide seals , if you mean a few minutes , than more serious piston ring problem. Change your oil , and add a can of RESTORE , it will fill small scratches in cylinder walls , but will not fix badly worn rings.

Smoking after start up


If it's the org. engine it will has over 160,000 miles on it.
It's normal to has valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder on high mileage engine.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the valve stem seals. The oil drops 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 CRC/service the head.

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

White smoke


White smoke is usually oil...sounds like the engine is burning oil thru the pcv system. Somehow oil is getting sucked backed down the intake and getting used again. Try changing the pcv valve on top or near the valve cover. It usually has a tube going to the carb base. Remember, all engines draw air in like a vacuum.....find your oil leak, and you will cure your smoke prob. Good luck.
