My pre-loved astra, currently sitting doormant in my back yard, needs a little attention.
Its a '98 Sport 1.6.
New engine in, but seems the new engine loves to throw out BLUE smoke on cold. and driving for about 5 mins then it seemas be ok.
Research tells me that it could be valve stem seals, although no leakdown test has been carried out to confirm this. Will such test confirm it?
Come on, realisticly, the car is worth little value and I spent too much on it, spesh with putting another engine in myself, so how hard is it to replace them?
I dont want the engine out the car again, so its an in car job. As far as I know, just a valve spring compressor is all I need, but obviously the camshaft has to come out, I aint too confident in playing around with the internals, but at the moment I aint driving it, so I think it's worth a go, what ya think?
Any help would be appreciated
