Hey...

My missus has a carby laser and said she filled it up with oil the other day. I havent had a chance to check the level yet, but she reckons she only went over the full mark "just". Now her car is blowing blue smoke when she starts it and for a little while when first drives it when cold. Could it be from the oil being over filled or would there be something else causing it.
Yeah I know there is no 4 cylinder section here, thats why Im in the 6 cylinder section.
cheers for any info you can help me with.
Kurt

yup. Definately sounds like valve seals.

When excess oil burns off you get plumes of white smoke pouring out the exhaust.

She probably put a really thin oil in it and that's why it's doing it after she filled it. How many k's has the engine done and how hard a life has it had?

That'd be blue smoke for oil!

If over filled or too thin an oil(less than 20w-40) it wiil cause oil smoke.Either drain oil to right level(remove oil filter and drain,as it only holds half litre at most)until correct level attained.

Yeah I think she put really thin oil in - its only done 180k km. Im about to go check the level, maybe drop the sump plug out and get it down just below the full level - hopefully will help. Might even drain the whole lot and put some thick s**t in.

Thanks for the help fellas
