My Atos Prime 1.1 GLS has oil on the 3th and 4th plug and is smoking when stretching gears


depends on how many km /miles done on that motor
and service history and treatment

oil on plugs and smoking under load means
leaking rocker cover
oil leaks somewhere else where oil gets hot

lots of oil usage from sump means
oil seal leaks or sump pan leak
worn rings or valves in number 3 and 4 cylinders
or
worn valve stems that can be replaced with the head on

if the latter
a compression test is required to tell if an engine rebuild is required or fit a used engine

, about 1 litter per 1000 km.No smoke, no leaks, no loss of power. I fill oil in ( about 200ml) then oil level show correct. after driving a distance then oil level is low again.What can the cause be


have a wet and dry compression test done on the engine
compression pressure should be around 150-165 psi with a variation between adjacent cylinders or not more than 10%
If the compression is down to say 120 psi wet then the problem will be a worn engine
the smoke is there but the cat converter is doing its job and burning it off

Useing oil but does't leak or smoke


Always low? even if you have an oil change? If it's low at oil change, the mechanics don't say anything? Do you do it yourself? Do you change the filter yourself? The filter "absorbs" a half quart or so, if that is your perceived always low. Perhaps you have the wrong dipstick for measuring oil level? Otherwise, if you have oil in your Cooling fluid you have a head gasket problem between oil channels and cooling fluid. Greater failure may be eminent.

Hi, if there is smoke 10-20 minutes that is fine, probably just residual oil from the top engine work.


if the smoke is a hour coming off the engine because of external oil leak, sounds like head gasket is leaking. If you continue to run the machine like this, make sure to always check oil levels and add oil when low. As long as your smoke is not coming out the tail pipe which would mean you are burning oil and would need to be fixed.

side note: Its always good to have a Haynes manual for any machine you own, they have great troubleshooting tips.

Smoking in the engine


Most likely the oil runs low quickly because there is an oil leak!
AND, the leaking oil is getting on a hot engine part and causing the smoking!
FIX THE OIL LEAK, and both problems should go away!

Hi, TSNP 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. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by worn out valve seals or a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. 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, air filter dirty and clogged, 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 or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

STP won't stop the leak, only disassembling and replacing the seal. However, the car could be burning oil but the catalytic converter will complete the combustion of the 'smoke' to water (H2O) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

At 230,000 KM, I wouldn't be surprised that the rings are worn or the valve seals are leaking internally.

Ok I have a 2005 tribute and I always run


This car has a catalytic converter, you can't see the smoke of the burned oil with it, it's cleaned. The oil could get in the plugs cavity only if there's a leak at the valve cover. My guess is that the oil seeps out only when there's pressure - the engine is running. To find where it leaks clean your engine thoroughly the start the engine in your driveway for an hour - where the oil will leak you clearly see it. In that case replace the corresponding seal.

My 2004 audi A4 consumes oil at a rate of 1 1/2 quarts every 3 months. There are no apparent leaks and it is not burning it. It idles and runs smooth. Any suggestions?


How many miles/km's you drive in those 3 month's ? oil consumption is normal ! Check when you first start the engine in the morning wetter or not you see a puff of blue smoke, if you see smoke , your valve seals are leaking.
1 liter oil each 2000km is normal.
