You know it is not the piston rings, because you did a dry and wet cylinder compression test and a cylinder leak down test?
So the oil is getting into the cylinders from where?
Is that your question?

Zx2 98escort idles fine no smoke when u start down road pours white smoke


Hi Sherry, If the smoke is a whitish blue grey, Best observed while standing behind the car and while parked with the parking brake on and asking a friend to run the engine at about 2500 RPM. If the smoke is evident then it probably means that the piston rings are worn or damaged and the engine needs to be rebuilt or replaced. If you have had any overheating problems, it could also be a blown cylinder head gasket, which to repair is also a major job. Regards John

Why is my cadillac 4.5 engine smoking


What color smoke ? Blue = oil burning , black = too much fuel (rich) white = coolant - blown head gasket ,cracked head or block . White also could be caused fuel running through the engine , no combustion !

If blue smoke started but then it stopped what does that mean?


When you stop at the traffic lights and then drive off and you get blue white smoke then you have either worn piston rings or worn valve guides where oil is getting into the combustion chamber.

This morning when I started my '98 Voyager. It started for about five seconds then turned off. This happened three times. Started it one more time and revved the engine. Same thing, five seconds then off....


I think the reason it starts and turns off is most likely you fuel pump the abs light on could be the brake fluid level and or the brakes may need replaced.

My ford escort 1998, started smoking badly from


Hi:
If the smoke is whitish in color, and just started doing this suddenly, then most likely you have a leaking head gasket, and it is letting coolant get in your cylinder, and possibly oil into your coolant. I am not sure about the noises you are hearing, but you should have your car checked out as soon as possible, or your engine could be permanently damaged, or it could be already.

Squeaky belt and battery light on now


+++ been told to fix blue smoke...piston rings gone .

Piston rings, valve seals are a good guess for cause of blue smoke. Engin oil additives for high-mileage engines can help the blue smoke problem... Pep Boys and the like -- many different products -- just make sure it's for stopping smoke, not cleaning engines...

+++ squealin....fan belt gone.

Has the alternator belt been tightened? If not, this could be causing both symptoms: dead battery & squealing

+++ battery light on...alternator gone.

Again, this could just be a loose belt, and most likely is the problem...

98 Deville Northstar temp runs up to 240 when idle


Yes it is headgasket. Mine had same problem. Yours might not be severe as of now, you can try these other solutions. THERMAGASKET... Which you can buy online, and get your money back if it does not work... And stuff in a bottle at Autozone Repair headgasket with NanoTechnology! I would try and sell it quick, because these engines are very costly to repair and most mechanics wont even attempt headgasket repair, and plus you have to TimeSert the block...
