Blue smoke
is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned
along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small
drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the
tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles
than newer cars with fewer miles. How did the engine oil get inside the
cylinder in the first place? The car has many seals, gaskets, and
O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the
cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the
cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss)
in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned
of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed
to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder. check plugs and wires for misfire.

You have bad valve seals. Blue smoke is oil burning. White is water/coolant, black is to much fuel. If the car runs good after the smoke, then it isn't a head job. I recommend you get a manual. It is exitensive work,, but follow the manual and you can do it.

Blue smoke from exhaust, bad smell, plugs misfiring.


Blue smoke is oil burning. What kind of mileage is on your engine?What weight of oil are you using? Misfire can be different things, bad wires, bad coil or fouling. Pull the plugs and look at them. If they are black and oily then they are fouled and I would suspect your engine is going to need expensive repairs or replacement. You could try going to a heavier oil like 15W40 or 20W50. This would buy you some time but a compression test should be done to see how bad it is and where to go from there.

1992 es300 blue smoke from exhaust


The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. So best bet is to have a local repair shop inspect for internal oil leakage.

Chevy malibu 2001 start to smogkin blue color i have codes po300


This is a Code for a random misfire on all cylinders. With the Blue smoke this indicates oil is present in the compression chamber.

The oil can cause the misfire and it could mean oil is getting past the piston rings or the valve stems on a traditional Overhead valve engine. In some cases, head gaskets can let oil go to the combustion chamber.

At best, you can pull the sparkplugs and see if this is a V6 or V8 that one head is bad and the other can remain attached to the block. But following the Random misfire warning, if the engine had several consistent cylinders misfiring, the onboard computer would tell you which one or which several cylinders are to blame.

You have sensors to make the cylinders fire. Crankshaft position sensors and sometimes camshaft position sensors can cause a misfire with little or no exhaust smoke. But the smoking problem usually means the things I mentioned. The misfire is the result of the oil problem.

Wish I had better news. Sometimes better scanners will recommend the solution to the problem it finds. Thats about all you could try again.

I hope my solution is useful.
