Well a few things i want to know ..like what colour was the old spark plugs when you took them out (Black) and does the engine sound as if it has a miss in it when starting and idleingAnd how many miles has it done and has it been loosing water from the radiator in the last 2 to 4 weeks and how much oil do you add in the same time.
AS by the sound of what you say it sounds like the engine is getting bad as the blue smoke is due to oil being burnt as it gets into the bores or from the valve stems worn and seals also worn out alowing oil to pass by and go into the cylinders and getting burnt when it fires and runs,, plus it could also be the piston rings have worn or broken and not having the compression to start straight away and run like it should.
So let me know the answers to above ASAP RON

02 dodge strauts, smoke coming from tail pipe


what kind of smoke by that I mean what colour is it and when does is happen under hard acceleration, at idle, when first started, under light acceleration, idling a long time? blue smoke is burning oil, white smoke is burning coolant sometimes accompanied with a sweet smell, black smoke its running rich. those are the basics.

Replace your hose going from intake to brake booster ( vacuum leak) check all other hoses also. Clean the throttle body. And a tune up probably wont hurt either.

Blue smoke from tail pipe 98 neon no leaks i can see


It sounds like you could need some new piston rings. when they go bad it causes oil to get by into the combustion chamber and burn when the engine fires.
