This is quite normal for an older vehicle as long as when you say alot it doesnt mean having to top up the oil every week.

Smoke from a side pipe

Leaking exhaust pipes and deflated radiator can be the result of this. Better start with the radiator first and check if its deflated. Also make sure the pipes are tightly mounted and double check any leak.

Check the seals on the intercooler, for oil to get in the pipes means that the seals are damaged and its loosing compression

overall the engine does not mean the problem is solved ! sorry. the oil coming out the breather means the engine is not breathing properly. if the arrangement of the rings on the piston is not correct , the engine will have a blow-by... causing sump compression... and push oil through the breather. also sludge blocking passages ie. the tappet cover, will also cause a problem.

Smoke from oil cap and breather pipe vw golf chico 1.3

I would recommend an oil change first and second I suggest that you get in the habit of checking and topping up the oil as it is critical that you keep the oil level correct. Less oil hotter oil hence smoke and possible engine failure

I have a 2000 beetle 1.6 petrol. When it warms up, the exhaust emits lots of blue/grey smoke. It is not losing any water. I have flushed and changed the oil. it needs 2 breather pipes which i will change.

would need a look iam afraid as it sounds like its sucking the oil fumes as it should into the engine but its drawing too much as a filter is missing in or around the breather pipe area ,either that or its just been hammered and now its needs new rings and a valve guides ,without a good look myself i honestly couldnt say

My 2002 bmw 330d is smoking alot and when the engine is running and i take out the oil dip stick, the oil comes shooting out like a brust pipe... Could it be that some of the breather pipes are blocked? if...

Hi , this sound like the engine breater is blocked. You will have to remove the air filter to gain access to this item, it is secured to the rocker cover by 4 x 5mm hex bolt screws. if you need any more assistance or help to remove this part just drop me a line . hope this is of help, regards mark
