White or blue smoke coming out of your car might sound kinda cool, but trust me, it's not. If your car has busted valve stem seals, then residual oil may be pulled into the combustion chamber when the car is first turned on. That’s not great, and it will result in a white or blue smoke coming out of the exhaust system. The colored smoke will likely go away as soon as the engine reaches a normal operating temperature, though it can persist if the valve stem oil seals are in really bad shape.
I’ve got some homework for you this weekend. Take a break from sitting in front of the TV, and go check the fluid levels in your car. It will only take you five minutes, and you can get back to your regularly scheduled programming. Checking fuel levels is a smart thing to do. That way you can find out when your car is losing a critical fluid, and get it fixed before things get worse. Malfunctioning valve stem oil seals may allow oil to enter the engine and be burned during combustion. In addition to causing other issues, this will eventually result in excessive oil consumption, which will show up in your fluid levels.
Trust me, I get it. Check engine lights, and any dashboard warning lights for that matter, are easy to ignore. They're just some tiny lights. What's the worst that can happen right? You don't want to know. If your valve stem oil seals are malfunctioning, your check engine light might pop up, and I'd strongly suggest you DON'T ignore it this time.Get a Quote 1-Year | 12,000-Mile Warranty
It’s safe to drive short distances in a car that needs a valve stem oil seal replacement. But it’s not great for the car, as it can put excess stress on the engine.
So, just do the smart thing here and get your valve stem oil seal replaced.
