Question about 1997 Chrysler Cirrus

1997 Cirrus burning oil

1997 Cirrus has started to exhaust blueish smoke from the exhaust pipe once the engine warms up. Occassionally the oil light comes on and we need to add a quart of oil. No engine noise. Car has 74,000 miles and is driven by my 81 year old mother approximately 25 miles max per week. A local mechanic told her to get rid of the car but did not tell her what the problem might be?

Engine Smoke from exhaust with foul smell


four cylinder?

It is not uncommon for these engines to start to "burn" oil. Check the oil level and confirm that it is low. If it is make sure to top it off and monitor the level.

Next time you change oil try using a oil designed for high mileage vehicles. We have been using Mobil High Mileage at the shop with pretty good results on higher mileage engines with oil consumption issues. We have have several of the same vehicles as your use the product and it has helped them as well. It can't hurt to give it a shot.

Idle is high at start - 1800 rpm. Seems like excessive white smoke from exhaust. Put into reverse and back out of driveway it has a regular shudder (bump bump bump) but not hard metal grinding sound.....


white smoke out of the exhaust would be a sign that it is burning coolant... if it goes away after it warms up, it could just be condensation inside the exhaust pipe. 1800 rpm is a very high idle, maybe have your IAC motor on the throttle body checked... check engine light? if so have the code read at your local auto zone.

Firstly, i am experiencing a lot of top ups on oil (1 pint/week). My car smokes a lot and the smoke is white and blueish like. My exhaust is so black and oil greasy residue and some oil is leaking through...


your idle problem is because your carb is missing somelines such as vacuum etc.
the reason your top up is increasing is because your car is burning oil hence the white/blue smoke.
you need your head gaskets changed and also get your mechanic to take a look at your O-rings (piston rings)

What make my 1993 blazer smoke


there are a few reasons for the engine to smoke. first determine the color of the smoke, white smoke means its burning water...possible bad head gasket or cracked block or cylinder heads. If the smoke is black...means the fuel mixture is to rich, getting to much fuel. If the color is blueish...it is burning oil, meaning the oil rings are worn, and or the valve seals are worn as well. if it smokes when you first start it, and then stops after a few minutes, once the engine is warmed up...probably bad valve seals. if it continues to smoke it is more likely the oil rings. Valve seals being cheaper and easier to repair, where as the oil rings means the motor needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

Burning smell and smoke coming from hood


you may have an oil leak and the oil is burning off of the hot exhaust or engine youll have to open the hood in order to decipher where the oil is coming from. or if its even oil it could be transmission fluid coolant a number of things youll have to see if you can tell exactly what it is thats leaking but my best guess is its probably oil.if it is oil its more than likely coming from the valve cover. id check there first.

White smoke exhaust


White smoke is caused by coolant or water coming out the tail pipe. There is a chance that the white smoke was caused by water splashing up from a puddle onto the exhaust pipe. Keep an eye on the coolant level in the radiator in any event. If its less then there leak coolant leak in the car engine which is causing this problem....
