Blue smoke means burning oil most likely due to worn piston rings. Black smoke means car is running rich too much gas being burnt

It sputters and belches out large clouds of blue smoke


mine recommends using only detergent oil rated API service classification SG-SL. Sounds like an older model and the synthetic may be to thin. Try changing the oil to a SAE 30 to see.

Occasional heavy smoke on tickover, but not using oil and oil clean.


HI do you now the color of the smoke
if engine emits white smoke its not burning the fuel
it could be water mixing with fuel = head gasket even tho you
dot have water in the oil
if engine emits black smoke - that's excessive fuel to air ration
check air filter & air inlet to see if clogged

if engine emits blue smoke - excessive oil consumption
cloud be valve seals

CHUCKS OUT CLOUDS OF BLUE SMOKE.


Blue Smoke: Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer cars with fewer miles.

How did the engine oil get inside the cylinder in the first place? The car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

Heater smokes but doesn't turn on


It sounds like you have a dirty nozzle. Remove and replace with the same type. It may not be spraying a fine enough mist.
Hope this helps.
