    blue smoke

    when idling theres no smoke but when its sat there idling for a while if you rev it, it blue smokes. only for the first rev, then its gone. you can boot it as much as you like with no smoke, just when its bin idling for a while..

    i was thinking valve stem seals. any ideas

    do you get a puff of blue in a morning when its been left overnight? or all day and start after work? mine does this a little then as the oil is hot and thin so it weeps past the stem seals a little and into the cylinder and hence gets burnt off in a single puff of blue smoke!
    At the end of the day, it gets dark!!!!!

    Mine was like this, and when it was hot and sat in traffic, would smoke alot.

    GSi is now sat in Courtenays garage having a new turbo fitted and head refurb.

    All I can say is my wallet has taken a dent
