Yes,it is possible,by closing the valves in the cylinder you are working on,and using a air fitting,screwed into the cylinder spark plug hole,this will hold the valve up.

When does it smoke? All of the time, or just when you start it? If it smokes all of the time, consider piston rings. If you have lots of smoke when first starting only, valve seals and possibly worn valve guides are the culprit.

SOURCE: WHAT'S LEAKING? Is it the valve stem seals or piston rings???

Hi,
If it is the valve seals,you can replace the head,but it would be cheaper to replace the seals,If you pull the head,you can do a leak down test on the pistons to check the rings as well.

How do I change valve stem seals on motorbike?


The valve stem itself can only be changed after taking a least one side of the tire off/away from the rim.
The schrader valve which is the little stem inside the valve stem is changed which a special inexpensive tool.
The valve stem and schrader valve are both available at any auto parts store. They can help with any other questions too.

How do I change valve stem seals on a Skyteam ST50


This is not a "drive way" repair... you need to do one of two things.. sometimes you can get a connector that can replace the spark plug to keep air pressure in the cylinder (THAT CYLINDER MUST BE AT TOP DEAD CENTER ON THE COMPRESSION STROKE!!!!) that will keep the valves closed..( YOU MUST HAVE A LARGE HIGH PRESSURE-HIGH FLOW AIR COMPRESSOR!!!)..now you can remove the valve springs one at a time (have a way to compress the springs??) ..and replace the valve stem seals..one at a time.. IF you DO NOT have the tools to accomplish this, --- YOU CAN REMOVE THE HEADS.. hold the valves in place and remove the valve springs.. and then change the seals, you must have a valve spring compressor to accomplish this.
Does this seem like something you can do..?? If you have never done this??.. PLEASE just pay a qualified professional to change them!! You will need intake gaskets, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, valve stem seals.. maybe the valves will need re-seating..
just to name a few things... get the idea...

2002 Subaru impreza ts 2.5 when driving down the road and let off the gas and coast then get back into it it smoke bad for a few minutes then clears up until you coast again. Is it the head gasket


no
when you are coasting , the inlet manifold vacuum can exceed 25 " mercury and that puts extra strain on the valve stem seals and rings
if they are failed or the valve stems guides are worn then the vacuum sucks oil past the seals and down the valve stems into the combustion chambers , resulting in the smoke when the system again fires up on acceleration
find an accrdited service center with experience on the make of car, have them do a compression test (wet and dry) to determine engine condition and if the rings prove a good compression , then they will be able to change the valve stem seals with out removing he head/s
get quotes first

Can I fit valve stem seals without taking the head off on 1600 sentra 1997


No you can't..
Fitting valve stem seals involves removing the valve springs. This means the valve has to be held in place by a valve spring compressor (bought from almost any spares outlet). The springs are compressed by placing one end of the compressor tool on the valve face and the other end over the spring cap, then squeezing the tool to compress the spring, then removing the split collets that hold the spring in place, removing the spring cap and spring, then eventually you have access to the stem seals.
The head has to be removed to accomplish all this.

Black and blue smoke when cold start


Hey Anon..this is a serious problem ONLY if you do not keep your engine oil level full...but you do need to get it repaired as soon as you can..
Sounds like you may only need new valve stem seals...BUT.. you need to check and see if your car smokes when driving.. especially when you are stopped at a red light, then take off again...Does it smoke then.>??? >> THIS IS IMPORTANT!!... It determines whether its rings and/or valve stem seals.. If it smokes after a red light.. it could be rings and valve stem seals.. If it ONLY smokes in the morning.. its a 99% chance its just worn out valve stems seals...
Find a qualified professional (ASE Certified or Toyota Factory shop) ..This is NOT an inexpensive fix..BUT - ASK if they will replace the valve stems seals without removing the heads..( I KNOW they can..its just a matter of WILL they!?!?)...BUT....The shop will want to rework your head(s).. called a "valve job" and this is normal,-- they will remove the head(s), all the valves, regrind their sealing surface and regrind the valve seats in the heads, install new valve stem seals, new intake gaskets, new head gaskets, fresh antifreeze..(get a new -QUALITY- thermostat and have them install it - no need to chance overheating your engine), they should "surface the heads".. giving them a fresh gasket sealing surface.. this will restore the sealing surfaces and help with the compression, and I would recommend letting them do it if you can!!....if you do this -- MAKE SURE you ask/demand for ALL your old parts back,-- all of them!! Good luck,, please mark as/if helpful...thanks!!

Dark water coming out tail pipe when I start my 1993 Saturn sl1


Oil in a cylinder is never good. There are several ways for the oil to get there and different prices to fix it.

Valve stem seals go directly around the valve and keep oil from the valve train from entering the combustion chamber. A worn or cracked seal can let oil run into the wrong place. Depending on how the camshaft and valve lifters are fitted, the valve stem is at the bottom of the camshaft and lifter. The overhead Cam models bury to valve stem deep inside the head.

Good practice would be to replace all seals at same time, but 1 cylinder could be done independently. But you are usually doing 90% of the work to do 1 set of seals. If a V-6 engine do the bad bank completely.

Head gasket, oil circulates through passages. Requires removal of everything above the head so gasket can be changed.

Bad Oil ring on Piston. Requires removal of head, oil pan, possibly motor to access crankshaft.

There are some tests which can help tell the difference between the problems. Some of it is visual so you need some disassembly for that. This is not going to be as simple as changing a waterpump or an Alternator. But the valve stem seals are reasonable and the head gasket is not so bad.

Can not say what labor will cost, but it will be probably 80% of the bill.

Engine light is on,the engine shakes/sputters but doesn't die(seems to want to though)especially when speed reaches 45 or over.changed spark plugs,found oil in that area(?)have began to smell gas(?) inside...


Had one of these a while ago in all honesty there not good vehicles thats being polite. How much oil was there? was it around the plugs or on the electrode part of the plug inside the head? if on the plug end then the valve stem oil seals have gone so you would need to take the head off and take the valves out fit the seals and then regrind the valves back correctly. Most likely it will cost about £450 as you will need a head gasket and bolts etc etc cam belt. thats if it is the valve stem oil seals.

Oil burning at idol


You have got valve stem clearance or valve stem seal issues You can change the seals yourself with a few special tools and a manual. The stems are another story. They require machine shop equipment and removal of the head/heads.I would try the seals first. A four cylinder would take an average handy guy about 4 hours.

1993 TOYOTA TERCEL 1500cc Valve Seals Replaced now smokes much worse


You either have had the wrong valve seals installed, they are physically missing, or the valves are incorrect (too loose in the guides/stem too thin). The rocker arm seals will not contribute to your issue. If it did not have the oil smoke before you took the head off, the issue is with whatever the machine shop did. Valve seals have to fit TIGHT, or oil will go down the valve stem into the intake.
Take the head back to the machine shop & tell them to fix it. For free.
