    Question Blue smoke related question

    Now I know blue smoke is caused by oil getting into the cylinder/s

    I need alittle help.

    I have had a leak down test and I was told everything is fine (thought this was abit odd)

    when I start my car I get a cloud of blue smoke, when i drive it about it appears fine, if I park up and let it idle for a small period of time I get a cloud of blue smoke when I set off

    the car doesnt feel down on power when being driven.

    I could do with some help or suggestions, everything I have read points to stem seals or piston rings.

    I have new stem seals waiting to be fit, I will be doing them myself but would like to read a detailed guide before starting the job.

    any help and advice greatly appreciated.

    To start with I thought it was the turbo so I replaced it with an uprated vxr unit but it still smokes

    Could do with finding a stem seal how to guide.........

    Just done mine last week found i had 6 out of 8 gone on the exhaust side. Now its done it's a smoke free Bus.
    If you want to check they have gone you can do so by taking the turbo off and looking down the ports of the head

    If you have a haynes manual have a look in that to see how it's done as they kind of have a how to in that but it aint an easy 5 min job, i'm a mechanic and i'd put doing mine off for a year.
    If you are going to have a go your self just make sure you time the cambelt up properly
