    I would expect some oil burning from a receltly reassembled engine. However, Was the engine honed? are the rings in right side up? Compression ring on the top? Wiper ring on the bottom? Did you do before and after compression tests? Is your crank case vent clear (no pressure in the crank case)?

After head gasket replaced 2008 2.2 ecotec hhr smoking badly any body


What color smoke white means coolant, blue means oil, black means burning too much gas. Who did the head gasket? Check for oil in the coolant. This could mean a bad head gasket install or a cracked block. If you have blue smoke you have worn piston rings

1999 saturn sw has blue smoke coming from tailpipe. I would like to know if it has anything to do with head gasket


blue smoke is usually oil burning- is it light or heavy- if light- change oil and go up one grade- rings are worn- if heavy- time for a rebuild- rings need to be replaced. but for the money on rebuild- could find car newer and lower milage

I havea daewoo nubira and we replaced the valve cover gasket yesterday , did an oik change and now the engine is smoking white smoke. Try to check to hoses, could not see a leak. Where is the cylinder...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The cylinder head is located on the center of the engine. Yes it can be a worn out head gasket or piston rings. If the piston rings are worn out the oil is burnt that's why it emits white smoke. You will need to replace the head gasket and piston rings.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have blue smoke coming out of the exhaust of my 1998 dodge caravan


Blue smoke is usually an indication of bad rings, which allows engine oil to be burned as you drive. The fix requires engine teardown, pulling off the heads, removing the oil pan, and removing the crankshaft, rods, and pistons. The cylinders may need to be bored, but at the least they will need cleaned up with a hone. The old rings taken off and new rings istalled. If the engine needed bored, then new pistons must be installed. Then, put it all back together.

Hope this helps you

What make my 1993 blazer smoke


there are a few reasons for the engine to smoke. first determine the color of the smoke, white smoke means its burning water...possible bad head gasket or cracked block or cylinder heads. If the smoke is black...means the fuel mixture is to rich, getting to much fuel. If the color is blueish...it is burning oil, meaning the oil rings are worn, and or the valve seals are worn as well. if it smokes when you first start it, and then stops after a few minutes, once the engine is warmed up...probably bad valve seals. if it continues to smoke it is more likely the oil rings. Valve seals being cheaper and easier to repair, where as the oil rings means the motor needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

My 1995 olds royal 88 has blue smoke coming from engine area


Blue smoke is oil and if it's coming from your engine compartment most likely means the gasket on your valve cover either needs to be replaced or it could even be as simple and needing to tighten the valve cover bolts a bit. Oil is leaking from the valve covers and working it's way to your hot exhaust manifold and that is where the smoking is most likely coming from.

Dear Sir, Problem is that engine was blowing white smoke and burning the engine oil after 500 km as half liter or more and I got repairing and my technician replaced its ring piston and other related...


The piston rings were a good idea but not necessarily a problem. The white smoke could be from a bad head gasket, cracked head or cracked block.

2005 CRF250R motor rebuilt but smokes blue


You know what they always say about the color of smoke... blue is oil, white is water and black is  i don't know lol.   Anyhow, if it was just recently rebuilt and you're getting blue smoke then oil is making it into your pistons OR you are burning off oil somewhere when it gets hot.  If you are seeing the smoke from the exhaust only, then think about piston rings, head gaskets, all the typical stuff that gets replaced on a rebuild.  It's near impossible to say exactly where to look so that's the best I can tell you.  I would lean more toward the piston rings.
Good Luck

SMOKING REALY BAD


You need to replace your piston rings. Blow-by gases from the crankcase goes back with carryover oil to the combustion chamber through the PCV valve that's why you are burning oil and producing bluish smoke. Check if there's oil in the intake manifold.
