My car is blowing light blue smoke is it my rings?


Recommended Posts

You only need one thread homie.


Depends on what's causing it.


1. Bad stem seals, read your plugs.

2. Bad rings, check compression both dry and wet.

3. Both 1 and 2.


And as far as repair costs, stem seal kits are relatively cheap, ~$40-60, and a rebuild seal kit can run about $300 plus machine shop costs about $300. So, anywhere from $40 to $600, depends on what's wrong. Of course, other than the machine shop, none of this includes labor.

I don't know, I've only rebuilt my own Toyota motor and did all the work myself using only Toyota parts.


I do know the stem seals (if they're the only thing that's failed) can be changed without removing the head (nor engine, of course) so Im not sure why its almost a grand. Then again, I haven't taken my car to a mech in over a decade so I am not the best person to chime in on this.
