Question about 2000 VOR Mx 400

1 Answer

Blue smoke When I start the bike up I get blue smoke from the exhausts for about 10 seconds - is this the valve seals - is it a big job? how much for a garage to do it? could I do it myself - would I need special tools? I've done a return spring so can lift a spanner, but never been fuurther than a tappet in the engine.

If you are not using oil, and the smoke only lasts for 10 seconds or so, and you get no more smoke later, then I would ignore it. If the guides were worn, you would also be getting smoke on the overrun. Are the plugs getting fouled up? Again if not, ignore. If it aint really broke, don't pay out wads to fix it. (Unless you are a perfectionist, and insist on everything being perfect regardless of cost). Even if the guides are a little worn, and it will only be a little at this point, they will go on for some time yet.

Why do I have blue/white smoke coming out of my exhaust?


Appears you are burning oil intermittently. Ring job in order.

Blue smoke start up


If it started to smoke after a service but didnt before, check for over-filled oil.
Otherwise it is a valve seal or piston ring gap issue.

My Ford Focus 2l tdci is smoking heavily by times. The car is for the past week in the workshop and no smoking occurred.How come blue smoke is pouring out of the exhaust only sometimes - then it is g


Hi Gert, If the smoke is more visible during the period after start up in the mornings, I would suspect the valve stem oil seals have become hardened and defective. The oil seeps in slowly passing the seals from the cylinder head. Sounds as though you need a head job. Regards John

White smoke coming out of my yamaha 2008 r6 whenever i start the bike. why is the white smoke coming out ?


Hi, Anonymous your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. WHITE SMOKE on start-up can is usually caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals. Smoke that is constant while riding is usually caused by valve to guide and piston ring clearances that have exceeded service wear limits.
3. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Blue smokes come out tailpipe when i start the car but stops afte


Helllo there
Symptom: Gray or blue smoke from the exhaust. You notice gray smoke coming from the exhaust when you start your car. The smoke may or may not disappear after the car is warmed. If it is, it is less noticeable. The smoke may have a bluish tint to it. Possible causes:

  1. The engine's piston rings may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace piston rings. (Generally not a DIY job)
  2. The engine's valve seals may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace valve seals. (Generally not a DIY job)
  3. Damaged or worn valve guides.
    The Fix: Replace valve guides. (Not a DIY job)
Symptom: Engine uses more oil than normal, and there is some smoke from the exhaust. The oil level is low between oil changes. It appears that the oil is being burned by the engine because of the smoke in the exhaust. You may or may not notice the engine doesn't have the same power as it used to.
Possible causes:

  1. The PCV system is not working properly.
    The Fix: Replace PCV valve.
  2. The engine may have mechanical problems.
    The Fix: Check compression to determine engine condition.
  3. The engine's piston rings may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace piston rings. (Generally not a DIY job)
  4. The engine's valve seals may be worn.
    The Fix: Replace valve seals. (Generally not a DIY job)

Exhaust pipe comes out white smoke when start bike on side stand


Continuous or just for the 5-10 seconds.
If continuous you may have oil seeping past your pistons oil rings or valve guides oil seals.
Check your spark plug see if they are fouled badly (covered heavily and oily) or just covered by oil and sooth lightly.
If 5-10 sec it is normal as the engine is heating up there are normally a little oil seeping past the seals.

Blue smoke


but never been fuurther than a tappet in the engine.If you are not using oil and the smoke only lasts for 10 seconds or so and you get no more smoke later, then I would ignore it. If the guides were worn, you would also be getting smoke on the overrun. Are the plugs getting fouled up? Again if not, ignore. If it aint really broke, don't pay out wads to fix it. (Unless you are a perfectionist, and insist on everything being perfect regardless of cost). Even if the guides are a little worn, and it will only be a little at this point, they will go on for some time yet.,,,
