Why is my car losing oil?


Hi..That is a lot of oil you are losing, The engine is definitely toast.
Blue/Gray Smoke: Blue/gray exhaust smoke is an indication of oil burning in the combustion chamber.

Valve Guides: Excessive clearance between the valve stem and the valve guide allows oil to leak past the gap into the cylinder.
Piston Rings: Worn or damaged piston rings will cause blow-by resulting in blue/gray smoke.
Worn Cylinder Walls: Worn cylinder walls cause blow-by resulting in blue/gray smoke.
PCV System: A stuck closed PCV valve will cause excessive crankcase pressure resulting in blue/gray smoke.
Is it worth fixing? Depends on how much this car means to you, Mileage of vehicle, and just how much money you want to throw into a 20 year old car..The engine will need to be completely overhauled or change out with a used engine probably close to 800- $1000 either way..Probably have a lot more into this than you can live with I'm guessing

Engines idle goes up and down after warming up and blows blue smoke


If the engine idles for a while then blows blue smoke this is an indication of oil passing the valve stem seals and being burnt in the combustion process. ( When you are at lights and they change and you accelerate away leacing a cloud of blue smoke this is worn valve guides and failed valve stem seals) As for the idle it could be the oxygen sensor is coated with oil and soot and is malfunctioning henace the cpu cannot regulate the fuel setting correctly. Have the valve seals replaced and clean the Oxygen sensor and check for other fault codes

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.
