Well unfortunately you can count on it meaning you'll have to get your wallet ready for a workout. Blue smoke could indicate a few different things I guess. However it is my own experiences that tell me what is happening is your motor oil is leaking past your piston rings and getting into the engine cylinder and mixing with your fuel and ultimately burning along with the gas. That leakage is getting compressed with the gasoline in the combustion chamber and the burned oil makes the blue smoke. Your car probably also doesn't have as much power as it used to and is probably running rather rough too. If it isn't yet it wont be long and it will evetually cause the oil to break down loseing its viscocity and not properly lubricateing the pistons. Because what is also happening is some of the gas is leaking past those rings too in the opposite direction and mixing with the oil in your crankcase and thinning it out. When this happens the engine will overheat from excessive friction and it will seize.
They used to do ring and valve jobs to fix the problem. But that is "old school" and we now live in a disposable society and most every shop around will recommend a newly rebuilt engine. With shop rates being as much as $125 an hour, the rebuilt motor is much more cost effective. I'm sorry to be the messenger of the bad news.
This means that you should just sell your car while you can, so that you don' t get stuck with it.
Burning of oil in cars can contribute to blue smoke from exhaust. However, it is also possible for a car to make blue smoke if a turbocharger is broken or experiencing an oil leak.
blue smoke can be caused by sticking valves or burnt rings
If you mean the smoke it's usually related to the quality of petrol
if you have blue smoke coming into the exhaust that means your piston rings are bad and are letting oil into your combustion chamber and then causing the oil to be burned with your air fuel mixture and that's why your exhaust is blue from having that burnt oil dumped out of the exhaust valve and out the exhaust
My understanding of exhaust smoke is that Blue is oil, Black is unburnt fuel, White is unburnt diesel on cold start. The main question would be, how much smoke and when does it do it?
Stuck or broken oil rings can cause blue smoke.
Depends on the color of the smoke. Blue smoke-oil. Black smoke-unburnt fuel.
Any oil burning will result in "blue" smoke. If you have blue smoke coming out of your exhaust, you definitely have an engine problem
It is caused by oil getting into the combustion chamber and burning off
Blue smoke is oil burning. Loud noises in the engine means internal engine problems. Time for a complete overhaul of this engine.
White smoke means water, blue/black smoke means oil, black smoke can also mean the fuel mixture is too rich.
Blue smoke is caused by engine oil being burnt by the engine.
blue smoke comes out the tail pipe when your engine is burning oil caused by a worn engine.
blue exhaust is usually due to excessive lubricating oil consumption and its emission indicates a very poor condition of the engine, such as worn out piston rings or valve guides, etc beside, as it possible to completely prevent the emission of blue smoke...
Blue smoke can be caused by a blown head gasket. . Blue is oil being burned in the engine.
The piston rings in the motor are bad. Very expensive fix.
Blue exhaust smoke is burning oil.
Blue smoke is from the engine burning oil. You could have too much oil or an internal engine failure.
