Re: found a 5th gen for sale

blue smoke means the car is burning oil. Does it have any mods?

It is well know that H22s will burn oil over time. Mine just hit 140k and I loose about half, to a full quart in between oil changes. Ive never noticed blue smoke though. There could be an oil leak somewhere

Re: found a 5th gen for sale

a cheap header might cause a leak, thats what happened with my friends GSR with a Dc header. It smokes like a motherf*cker.

If youre unsure ask the seller if you can take it to a shop you trust and have them check it out. Just tell them it smokes and youre thinking about buying the car

Re: found a 5th gen for sale

idk exactly haha, just a scenario I see with my friends GSR. The smoke comes from where the header attaches to the block

Re: found a 5th gen for sale

valve seals.. when the vtec kicks causes more force and makes it more likely to purge oil through the motor

Re: found a 5th gen for sale

Re: found a 5th gen for sale

piston rings might be fried. maybe an exhaust leak.

Re: found a 5th gen for sale

lol my prelude (that i just bought 2 months ago...) does the sameeeeee thing.... and I found out my piston rings are toast. If the guy will let you do it, take it somewhere to get compression tests run on it. Wish i would have done that.. >.<

My lude did tha same thing when i red lined it. It could be that one of your cylinders are messed up. that was tha problem with mine.

Re: found a 5th gen for sale

It doesn't sound like an exhaust leak. It sounds like your rings are toast. Do a compression test or a leak down test on it and let us kno what the readings are. Your local shop should be able to help you or a local autozone or car store can
