Re: OIL IS EVERYWHERE!!!!

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Liquid oil or burned oil vapors (blue smoke)? [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] How can you tell it's oil? Could it just be excess moisture (a by-product of efficient combustion) mixing with some left-over carbon in the exhaust causing black gunk to come out the exhaust pipe?

If it in fact is liquid oil, I theorize some bad magic is going on...</font>

Re: OIL IS EVERYWHERE!!!!

Why is it when people notice weird things like antifreeze-smelling exhaust or nifty things coming out of the tailpipes they never bother to pull the spark plugs and see what they look like?

You'd know what cylinder it is and if there is damage to the plug.

Re: OIL IS EVERYWHERE!!!!

Umm, ok you come in and ask the question:

"hey why in the hell is oil coming out my exhaust pipe? I have true dual exhaust, and it is only on the left side "

Then someone answers you with a good answer and you say:

"well, we dont pull them b/c they are brand new as of a week ago, plus i know whats wrong, i dont need to look at a spark plug to see if it is oil contaminated; duh if oil is blowing out my exhaust pipe, logic has it that the plug is oil fouled"

So, if you know whats wrong, why ask the question?

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>Logic would also have it that the oil is getting in somewhere, and the only places it could get in is through the valve seals or the rings... Pull the valve covers and check the seals, or just replace them, if that doesn't take care of it then it must be a ring. With that few of miles I'd bet that you cracked a ring somehow, the seals shouldn't be toast that fast.
