Sorry but I know of no easy solution. Sounds like the engine has worn piston rings and loose valve guides. Rebuilding an engine is very expensive and buying a used one from a salvage yard and putting it in also is expensive.

Blowing blue smoke


Hi can you tell me make and model. Does the car blow blue smoke all the time and other than smoke any other symptons? poor starting , power loss etc.
I had a similar problem on a golf gti after servicing drove very well but smoked on start up, and found to be the high grade fully synthetic oil recommended by the factors was simply too thin, and thus giving me by pass on worn valve seals and pistons on older engine sometimes a thicker grade oil is better.

CAR BLOWING BLUE SMOKE FROM TAIL PIPE


Blue smoke indicates burning oil. So you oil getting into your cylinders somehow. Could be broken oil ring on one piston. If you have a lot of miles on your car or it has been overheated your engine may need an overhaul.

2006 Town & Country burning oil excessively. 40,000 miles; burning 1 quart every 1000 miles; no signs of the oil anywhere


At 40K miles it shouldn't burn that much oil, unless the motor has been abused or overheated. With no signs of oil leaks, the engine must be burning it via the exhaust,

Change the oil (use a good quality oil) and then observe oil consumption.

If it still uses excessive oil check further as below:-
1) if it blows blue smoke on steady accelleration (pistons or ring wear),
or
2) only blows blue smoke on initial accelleration after a period of steady coasting or de-celleration (faulty valve stem oil seals).

Little power if you just get in and go. push on the gas and doesn't go. blows blue smoke if it doesn't run for a few days.


Hello Melissa,

Blue smoke is caused by burning oil. If you get blue smoke at startup or when taking off from a stop then you probably have leaky valve seals. The oil is getting past your seal and into the combustion chamber; When you startup the car the combustion chamber burns off the oil causing blue smoke.

You will definitely need to get this car to a shop, this will involve getting into the internal components of the engine.

Thanks for using Fixya! and Please rate my post:)

Blue smoke from rear


blue smoke is usually a sign of oil thats burning. sounds like you need a valve job for it to correct the valves and stop the oild from burning. Either way its most likely going to have to go to a mechanic.

Sputtering during idle blue smoke


You are burning oil, causing the blue smoke. It is mainly cause by worn piston rings. Also will coat your spark plugs with oily residue. Try an oil additive such as "stop smoke" or another such brand to reduce burning your oil and it may recondition your seal sand stop it all together.
