It sounds to me like your petrol pump (fuel pump) is going out.

I would suggest you check oil levels etc. Generally these cars suffer from the air mass meter / air sensor problems aswell as coil problems too. Did you ever get a solution to the problem?

How to replace valve stem seals on 2003 Diahatsu Sirion 3cyl 1ltr EJ-DE


the correct method is to pull the head as that way you can measure the wear in the valve guides --a major reason for valve stems seal failure along with cracked /broken seal rubber
However if you are really mechanical minded, remove the cam shaft/s
for each valve in turn place a tool in the plug hole under the valve head and slowly bring the piston up to hold it in place against the head of the valve
remove the retaining Colette , springs and then the old seal
fit new seal and re assemble the retainer

lower the piston and reposition the tool under the other valve ans repeat the operation
do that for 3 cylinders

How to replace AUDI (VW) PCV valve


PCV is an acronym for positive crankcase ventilation.
The PCV Valve is a very common replacement item on many engines today. It's called the PCV valve for short but it stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. When your engine spins it many times collects pressure in the crankcase area, and it has to escape to relieve pressure on the motors bearings and seals. The PCV valve and PCV system is typically located near the intake manifold, and many times comes right off of the valve cover. It is very simple to replace the PCV valve, and you can do so by simply unscrewing it, and screwing in the new valve. We recommend using a little bit of teflon tape or paste to make sure you do not get any oil leaks.
Example (see picture below): 2,4 ltr. Audi V6 engine (BDV, AMM)

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!!

BLUE SMOKE FROM AUDI RS6 ON DE ACCELERATION AND START UP THINK OIL STEM SEALS ARE LETTING OIL THROUGH. CAR RUNS FINE I THINK, AND EXCESSIVE BUILD UP OF OIL IN DRIVER SIDE TURBO PIPE, 62000 MILES WITH A...


General rules of thumb: Low speed engine on acceleration with smoke in the exhaust plume = worn piston rings High speed engine accelerating (spooled up turbo) with smoke = oil form turbo bearing and/or piston rings Engine on over run (coasting down, foot off the gas) with smoke = oil from valve guides. VW/Audi make good engines with tight tolerances so none of the above should apply at 62K miles; just make sure that the oil (the right oil) and oil filter are changed regularly.

Hi my ford granada 2.8 carb 1984 started idleing rought and kicking blue smoke out just bought new head gasket set but the valve stem seals are tight and is that a problem danny


Blue smoke = oil is burned. You have an oil seal that is worn out so yes, the valve stem seals might be the ones. Replace them and check again.

The valve stem oil seals sound like theyre worn and oil is getting past the vlaves and been burnt in the combustion chamber,once the valve stem oil seals are replaced it should cure your problem as with only 57k kms the piston rings shouldnt be worn yet.

A6 smokey on start up


If it's the org. engine it will has over 85,000 miles on it.
It's normal to has valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder on high mileage engine.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the valve stem seals. The oil drops 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 CRC/service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.

Replace valve stem oil seals


Make up an airline fitting that will screw into spark plug hole, or buy from autoparts , or tools supply place. You put compressed air in cylinder while changing, which holds valves in place.
