Suzuki 12valve smokey engine?


Could be valve stem oil seals, could be piston rings worn, could even just need a tune, best advice without seeing the car run is to go to your local mechanic with the car for their opinion

Engine management light stays on


check whether you do have a smell of fuel or burnt gasket in the radiator after remove the cap. If so then you have an overheated engine and blown gasket. Or check whether if you have either water in engine oil or vice versa. Having any of the two,surely you have to remove cylinder head for renewing cylinder head gasket etc.

Impreza 1.6RX is choking and spluttering, changed exhaust, coil fuel filter and air filter, runs ok for a little while, then splutters and chokes again,


When you say changed the exhaust, did you change the catalytic converter also? This sounds like your problem.

I have a 1997 passat petrol coughs and splutters on cold start u


There is a cold start valve on the throttle body,may just need a clean.Check for damp in the ht leads and use wd40 or another lube to dispell moisture.Check your vacuum hoses for splits as at that age they will have cracks and leaks not visible even after removing.Have you ever changed the petrol filter just as a precaution and what is the condition of the sparkplugs as worn one work on hot tempretures but mess around in the cold.

Susuki baleno 4cyl 1.6l blowing smoke


It sounds like a piston oil ring is broken considering the valve stem guides and seals have been done, oil is definately getting into the combustion chamber there are only two places that can happen through the valves or through the rings, black smoke is always too much gas, blue smoke is always to much oil in combustion chamber. Hope this helps even though it's not the best news.

hi, you will need to have the engine control unit fault memory check as this could be any thing from a faulty sensor to an air leak, regards mark.
