My Atos Prime 1.1 GLS has oil on the 3th and 4th plug and is smoking when stretching gears


depends on how many km /miles done on that motor
and service history and treatment

oil on plugs and smoking under load means
leaking rocker cover
oil leaks somewhere else where oil gets hot

lots of oil usage from sump means
oil seal leaks or sump pan leak
worn rings or valves in number 3 and 4 cylinders
or
worn valve stems that can be replaced with the head on

if the latter
a compression test is required to tell if an engine rebuild is required or fit a used engine

Help! My 2005 Mercedes CLS350 auto is blowing white smoke on start up. There's a hint of blue smoke there too. It's not low on oil. 158km on clock. There seems to be more smoke in right side exhaust. Any...


Have your mechanic check the car for a leaking head gasket; in the early stages white smoke - coolant being burned - will show up; you would not see any leaks, as the leak would be INTERNAL; driving with a defective headgasket will for sure cause more severe damage to the engine!

It could still have air in the system, or a leaking head gasket is putting cylinder compression into the cooling system. You can have engine compression leaking into the radiator without having coolant in the engine cylinders.

My 91 honda civic has alot of white smoke coming out of the exhaust, and have oil on the spark plug in the #3 cylinder not sure what the problem is (bad vaulve/seal)??? one month prior to problem blew...


I'll tell you what few might be problems
Oil on spark plug could be:

1. bad cylinder rings 2. value seals
For Value Seals you will take off head again and then take off value over. Take all (Lifters or Cam) and springs off and you will see seal rings in each of values.
For cylinder rings, you will maybe need to take motor out and take head off, oil pan and rod bearing unbolts to get cylinder out to replace new rings. Or you can try do that without motor out. just take oil pan off under the car.
Try change oil with 1 qt of Lucas Oil and 4 or 5 normal oil. Best oil is Castol High Mileage
Lucas Oil should help stop leaking oil inside the cylinder. Or another kind bottle called (Stop Smoke) at auto store.

White smoke mercedes benz 2008 gl-class 320


Seek out another mechanic. White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Most of the time this is caused by a blown head gasket. A loss of coolant with no apparent leak, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, oil level overfull, and air bubbles escaping from the radiator are other symptoms of a blown gasket or cracked head. Stop driving this vehicle until you have this diagnosed and repaired. A compression test will verify this. Serious engine damage will occur if you indeed have an internal leak so make sure one way or the other.

Pajero 1989,too much smoke durong first start


Is it white,black or blue smoke?
If it's the org. engine it will has over 200,000 miles on it.

It's normal to has the valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals. It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.

This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional to service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.
I will monitor the oil and coolant level.
White smoke AFTER warm up is the first sign of blown headgasket.
