Hi all
i have a major problem with the engine on my wifes car.

when fisrt started the engine blows out that much smoke it fills the road!!!
the smoke is a blue colour.
this lasts for about 5 mins and covers the back of the car in an oil deposit!

when this clears the engine runs a little lumpy but does run!

what could be the cause of this.

the car went into peugeot and all they could say was:-

"looking at the worst scenario a new engine would cost about £6000"
fek me the car is only worth about £3000 - £3500

please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Blue smoke is usually an indication that you are buriing engine oil.

Oil over the back of your car would seem to confirm that.

One of the other older forum members might recall a similar problem ?

If your engine was a flat four petrol engine I would look at the gasket first.
