Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Pcv valve good what causing blue white smoke under
load is it just oil rings bad or could it be bad plugs

3 Answers


usually rings or valve seals. So time to rebuild the engine. I'd just add oil and drive it till you have enough cash to pick up another car.

Try a heavier grade oil until you can get a better car.

Blue smoke from the exhaust is oil burning. On acceleration it's worn rings. At idle only, it's valve guide seals. HTH. -Jim
