Now that the governor has issued a stay-at-home order, you’re working out of your home. You’re also still trying to get exercise and, rather than bike around the neighborhood, you drove over to the Arkansas River Bike path this morning for a long ride. When you arrived, one of the others there said they noticed blue smoke coming out of your exhaust.
Blue or dark smoke coming out of the exhaust is a sure sign that your car is burning oil. It’s not a good sign for any vehicle, although it’s common in older cars. Cars.com notes that, as vehicles age, they tend to burn more oil. But don’t ignore if just because it’s a common in older cars – you could seriously damage your engine by not getting it fixed.
“Common culprits that result in burning oil include worn valve stems, guides and seals, and piston rings, all of which can allow oil to seep into combustion chambers,” cars.com says.
Cars.com adds, “When your car is leaking oil into the combustion chamber, you have a serious problem that needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. Even if you don’t notice smoke coming from your exhaust, something still is not right if your car is consuming too much oil between oil changes. While a simple tune up may be all that is needed to solve the problem, more in-depth repairs may also be required.”
Whether you notice blue smoke coming from your car’s tail pipe or you notice your car seems to be using a lot of oil, it’s time to call the certified auto repair technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
