How do you know the rings are not bad,or a piston is not cracked?Only other reason would be that the valve guides,and seals are bad,but hardly unlikely with it pouring out the tail pipe.

I have blue smoke coming out of the exhaust of my 1998 dodge caravan


Blue smoke is usually an indication of bad rings, which allows engine oil to be burned as you drive. The fix requires engine teardown, pulling off the heads, removing the oil pan, and removing the crankshaft, rods, and pistons. The cylinders may need to be bored, but at the least they will need cleaned up with a hone. The old rings taken off and new rings istalled. If the engine needed bored, then new pistons must be installed. Then, put it all back together.

Hope this helps you

I have a 1991 Dodge Dakota that is running very poorly. There is an abundance of blue smoke that emits while accelerating. The truck has a V8 engine but lacks the punch, has a lot of trouble accelerating...


Blue smoke is a direct indication your burning oil.This is a old truck and im assuming it has lots of milage.If this true either your valve seals are bad or piston rings are bad.Both of these cause oil burning,which will cause blue smoke and poor performance.

White smoke coming out of my exhaust pipe, when start car and putting oil in every day ?


White smoke out of your exhaust pipe is the result of oil being burn during the combustion in your engine. This is caused by wear and tear of the cylinder walls and wear on piston rings. Oil is getting in and burning with the air/fuel mix.

How much oil are you adding every day? And what level is the oil dipstick showing usually? Sometimes overfilling the engine with to much oil can cause this.

Hi I traded a 92 Dodge Dakota with trans. problems for a 99 Ford Ranger that throws alot of smoke. Do you think it is the motor or cens. in the cat.


Your cat won't cause your vehicle to smoke, unless there is oil on it, then as the exhaust warms up, the cat will burn off the oil. Chances are, there is something wrong with your engine.

There are a few diagnostic steps you can make to see if you're burning oil, running rich, or have a leaking head gasket:

Check your plugs. If they've got oil or a filmy, soot-like deposit, you've got worn valve guide seals or worn rings, and you're burning oil, or you're running rich, indicative of other problems.

The exhaust "smoke" that you see, if it's like a white/gray cloud, could be steam from a leaking head gasket or water in the intake. If it's blue-ish, that's normally running rich. If it's black, you're probably burning oil.

Came to a stop and all of a sudden the car started to hesitate and when we parked it blue grayish smoke started coming out of the back end.


Blue smoke, if its coming from your exhaust pipe, is from oil burning. Most likely from the engine, so check the oil. A broken piston ring, or bad valve guides can do this.

Hard starting and to much smoke when engine running idle and sometimes fluctuation


Smoke usually there's a problem.... Bluish gray smoke means you're burning oil (could be a number of things like piston rings, valve seals)... White smoke means could mean you're burning transmission fluid, or there's a crack in the gasket or engine block.... Black smoke could mean you need your air filter changed, bad fuel injectors, bad distributor cap, ignition coil... I would guess it's probably black smoke coming out of your exhaust from the sounds of your symptoms...
