Blue smoke coming from the exhaust is most likey the head gasket. depending how bad it is smoking, the more blue smoke=the worst. turn your car on, and let it run til the blue smoke starts coming out the exhaust. then get a smell of the smoke. it could either smell like oil or antifreeze. either antifreeze or oil could be mixing with your gas due to a cracked or worn head gasket and causing the blue smoke.

SOURCE: blue smoke comes out of one of the exhaust

This cars are notorious oil burners due to poor valve guides in the heads. Easiest solution is to us 100% synthetic oil. Car will still burn oil, but you will not get the blue smoke as synthetic oil burns to an ash and not to a smoke. I have done this with my Lebaron, and it has stopped smoking for 2 years now.

SOURCE: i have a nissan cashqai

the engine is burning oil, the oil coming out of the exhaust pipe is a serious problem, it could be that the engine needs completely reconditioning or fit a reconditioned engine, you may be able to get an engine from a wrecking yard but it could be almost as bad as the one that you have......hope this helps.......cheers.

I'm looking to purchase a used car. I've been doing online research and saw this webpage http://www.usedcarsmells.com . They talk about exhaust color and smells. Is it true that you could tell a lot about...


Yes this is correct, you can get important information from the colour of smoke from the exhaust:

Blue/Gray Smoke: Blue/gray exhaust smoke is an indication of oil burning in the combustion chamber. These are possible symptoms and causes:
Valve Seals: Leaking valve seals will cause blue/gray smoke at startup because oil leaks past the seals into the cylinder after the engine shuts down.
Valve Guides: Excessive clearance between the valve stem and the valve guide allows oil to leak past the gap into the cylinder.
Piston Rings: Worn or damaged piston rings will cause blow-by resulting in blue/gray smoke.
Worn Cylinder Walls: Worn cylinder walls cause blow-by resulting in blue/gray smoke.
PCV System: A stuck closed PCV valve will cause excessive crankcase pressure resulting in blue/gray smoke.
Black Smoke: Black exhaust smoke is an indication of a rich fuel condition. These are possible causes:
Fuel Injectors: A leaking or dripping fuel injector will cause a rich fuel condition.
Fuel Pressure Regulator: A stuck closed fuel pressure regulator will cause a rich fuel condition.
Fuel Return: A restricted fuel return line will cause a rich fuel condition.
White/Gray Smoke: White exhaust smoke is an indication that coolant is burning in the combustion chamber. These are possible causes:
Cylinder Head: A crack in the cylinder head (around the coolant jacket) will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber.
Engine Block: A crack in the deck of an engine block near the coolant jacket will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber.
Head Gasket: A damaged or blown head gasket will cause coolant to enter the combustion chamber resulting in white/gray smoke coming from the tailpipe.

What could blue tailpipe smoke be from?


Your issue could be a few things. Simplest first would be the PVC valve. Other issue would be valve seals, valve guides or piton rings. The blue smoke is from your vehicle burning oil

Blue smoke coming from exhaust


Blue smoke coming out of the exhaust indicates that oil is getting into the piston cylinder and being burned along with the gas. This could be a leaking head gasket, worn piston rings, or the wrong weight engine oil (viscosity too low). A leak down test will be needed to diagnose.
Have you checked your engine oil level?

When first starting up smoke comes from exhaust and makes a loud noise


Black smoke is excess unburnt fuel. Blue smoke is oil being burned, if blue the valve stem seals may be allowing oil to seep down over night.

EXHAUST TROUBLE SHOOTING


If smoke is black indicates too much fuel
If smoke is white Could be coolant in the exhaust system
If smoke is blue possible excessive oil entering in the combustion system
Also if you have an automatic transmission with a vacuum modulator, it could be leaking transmission into the combustion
If you have too much oil in the engine, it will also smoke
