Smoke

Hey guys

Does a lot of blue smoke when cold signify piston rings are finished or injector(s) are finished?

smoke

It's 1997 250. 187000 kms. (though many idling hours). Never replaced injector o-rings. It does burn oil. It is hard to start when cold.

A lot of idling is believed to hurt your truck and cause wet stacking. Wet stacking is fuel residue buildup.

You said it uses oil, how much does it use.

Oil

In about 2000 km of driving it's probably used about 2-3 liters of oil. But it also leaks a lot of oil out of the crankcase breather on top of the driver's side valve cover.

Comp. test

I haven't done a compression test because you need some special tools and pressure gauges.

If my oil smells a lot like diesel and the truck smokes a lot, could that also mean injector o-rings?

Hey at least if my truck uses & leaks a lot of oil and I have to add a couple liters every few thousand k, I'll never have to do an oil change.
