Blueish smoke out of exhust,no power, puddle of oil under car, smells like raw fuel out of exhust

Hi , it sounds like your valve stem oil seals need renewing. If you mix oil with petrol it does not all get ignited hence blue smoke from the oil and the smell of petrol out the exhaust.

Hi got an oil leak on the join of the muffler and exhualst what would cause this thanks

There shouldn't be any oil at any of the exhaust joins...there will usually be some condensation as a by-product of combustion, but definitely no oil.
Make sure there's no oil pipes above the muffler that may be dripping.

I have an aprilia rx125 2008 & the oil petrol mixing system has been blocked off and now petrol & oil are mixed in the petrol tank, but the bike starts for 3-5seconds then stops & petrol comes out of

Hi Steve, and the usual suspects are:
1. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
2. Loose float bowl screws.
3. Damaged float bowl o-ring.
4. improper fuel level in the float bowl.
5. Worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
6. Damaged or leaking float assembly.
7. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity.

I have a 02 v star classic 650 and have leak that looks like its coming from my crankcase but I don't know how to check the gear oil? And will taking off the mufflers mess up my conpression ratio?

You have a sight glass for the oil level - it's near the front of the engine, down near the shifter pivot point. It's a little tough to see and it's a 2 person job to check the oil level since the bike has to be vertical to check the level. Check without the engine running. There are two small grooves on the right side of the sight glass to indicate high and low level. You want to maintain the higher level.

Taking off the mufflers won't mess up your compression ratio. But - you need to have some form of muffler to create a little back pressure. Open pipes will backfire like crazy and the open pipes can lead to warped and cracked exhaust valves. Not advised. Get a pair of Cobra slip-ons or something like that - I would not suggest running open pipes.

I hope this answered your questions! Good luck!

hi there ricksq

take the muffler off - have a look at piston / rings and bore , i suspect you did not put enough oil in the petrol or forget to put oil in petrol and ran on straight fuel or on a very very lean oil mix

if you see quite deep scores and gaulls on piston / rings / bore - might pay to invest in a new saw or a new piston and cylinder kit for these machines

have a look

let me know what you find

Hi there was smoke coming from my exhaust and the engine was on fire abit there was a smell like burning oil thanxs james

ask a local mechanic to have a look as i suspect a oil leak onto the engine but i cannot be more specific without having the bonnet up and a good look ,could be anything from a loose breather pipe to rocker cover gasket ,We do have these vehicles here in spain but mainly diesels although the odd petrol one gets brought here and these have a toyota engine i think ,remember they are all built on the same assembly line here so a ford /fiat/citreon/seat/VW and whatever else all use the same parts well mostly anyway .And nearly all diesel manual variants unless its an import from the states but we dont get many of these strangly beautful machines with leather interiors ,big V6 petrol engines with auto boxes with lots of knobs and bells ,cant afford the petrol at about nearly 6 dollars a gallon

Having problems starting Makita strimmer. There is quite a lot of smoke coming out and then it stops. Have looked at spark plug -clean, and cleaned air filter. Could the problem be the petrol and oil mix.

Use 50:1 gas/oil with a GOOD QUALITY 2-cycle low-ash synthetic oil.

Remove the muffler and check the spark arrestor isn't partially blocked.

With a clear muffler, and the mix as described, there will be hardly any smoke at all.

Oil in coolant.had head gasket done.but the problems still ther

either you havent flushed the cooling system out properly ,or the oil cooler has packed up ,their is a oil cooler radiator of sorts that the oil filter screws onto ,these often leak ,just remove the water pipes and join them together with a small piece of copper pipe ,then if you see oil coming out of the water pipes fit a new cooler

Hi I have an Echo GTX 2000 weed eater and I need to know the petrol/oil fuel mix ratio

That mix is 32:1. It makes for harder starting, carbons up pistons, cylinders, and mufflers.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil is 50:1.
You are correct, 50:1 is what Echo recommends.

My engine oil light is on, and my bike wont stop reving

hmmm tricky.... knackered fuel tap sounds favourite, petrol vapour coming back round the system via breather back in to airbox making the revs go up, and probably oil is like water being mixed with petrol that's been leaking through. take of oil filler cap and smell oil, if it stinks of petrol, drain oil, if like water and full of petrol, change fuel tap, oil filter, and refill with new oil. carb float valves should stop petrol seeping through in theory but it'll always get past. just thought, if it is all that then airfilter will be full of petrol vapour as well, get a new one if paper, wash out if foam.
