1990 p100 blue smoke on idle


Recommended Posts

I have a p100 1990 1.8 diesel . It is missing a bit and smoking badly.  The smoke is blueish  and worse on idle . Clears a bit when revved and smells of diesel. Anyone got an idea  what the problem could be and how to fix. Thanks in advance . Amanda

have you just bought it like this, or was it fine and got worse gradually, or was fine one day and then the next day suddenly went like this?

would be worth checking any crank case breather pipes, make sure they ain't blocked, ideally need to figger out weather its burning oil or if its fule.

Have you checked the above and the Turbo oil seals both of these  can cause blue smoke on a diesel and considering that its a 1990 I would definitely check the crankcase breather first On my older car before I had this one it often filled up with what looked like thick grease had to poke it out with a stick.
