Combo diesel engine blows blue smoke from only one cylinder,disconnected electric on each cylinder but smoked only on the same cylinder. Could it be the head gasket,leak from oil passage way. Should i try thicker oil, leaking past oil valves.

Turbo and engine been overhalled ,200kilometres further i had to fill it up with 2.5litres of oil.there is no visible oil leaks and no smoke coming out of the exhaust.Reason for turbo and engine overall is that the bakkie used 15lt oil from roodepoort to durban and also no smoke or oil leaks. Did the garage take my money or what can be the problem.

My 69 Chevy Impala is leaking oil out of the valve cover breather. It also blows heavy blue smoke when i'm going down the freeway and press the gas. It only lets out a puff of smoke and then if I keep the pedal pressed at all it won't smoke. The oil splatters all over the drivers side of the engine, so i'm not sure if the smoke is being blown from the engine out the back, or if its coming from the pipes. I replaced the PCV valve, and oil cap, to no change. I don't seem to have any loss

1994 Lexus ES300 large cloud of smoke when the car is started. Also, drove for several miles on the freeway then parked. When the car started, no smoke until I hit the first stoplight, while idling it was smoking really bad. Excessive oil residue from the valve cover breather to the intake. Uses 1qt about every 150 miles (some due to oil leak from crankshaft oil seal between engine and tranny.) No other noticable smoke other than those times. When I changed the plugs #1 and 3 had excessive carbo

I have a 1984 Ford F-350 6.9 diesel with about 120k miles. The engine runs great, starts right up, and when shut off it stops quickly. If it sits for several days it will smoke a little blue at first, but does not smoke hardly at all when running down the road. This truck sat a lot and was used on a farm for several years. We changed the oil like three times to get the excessive build up out of the motor, and now it seems that it is using oil quite quickly, like one quart to 50 miles. Do you hav

My 03 Maxima (3.5l 255 hp) started burning oil at rate of 1 qt per 1000 mi. One guy at the dealer says this is normal, just keep adding oil, other guy at dealer says 'time to get a new car." Either way, it doesn't sound right, why is it burning that much oil? Checked for leaks, no leaks, car also does not smoke at all, still drives great. I've always used the synthetic 10w40, had regular oil changes. Car has 115,000 miles on it, I expected to get a lot more wear out of this car & I'm pretty disa

Rattly noise I recently started having problems with my 1996 ford taurus. Sometimes when I step on the gas it will make a rattly noise and it has less power. When I take my foot off the gas, it stops. Sometimes when I start my car there will be some blue smoke out the tail pipe. sometimes it does this when I'm driving and I get the rattly sound but not always. I did have an oil leak by the oil pan fixed a few weeks ago. This started just before the oil leak was fixed, but hasnt gone away. I've t

2003 lincoln ls v8-every time the car is started-that is, cold start- the engine/valves knock for about 3 sec. then is ok. I've used synthetic oil, had numerous treatments, and I change the oil (when I use reg oil) every 3-4 thousand miles.

This has been happening for about 2 years now, and the mileage when this started was abou
