  5. Smoke after engine rebuild

    Yes I did rings & bearings
  6. Given your good compression, the piston rings/bores and valves are sealed well. So where is the oil coming from?? Take the inlet manifold off and see if it is full of oil? Is the breather blocked or is there too much oil in the sump?

  11. Smoke after engine rebuild

    I was just idling it for now, the smoked freaked me out, didn’t expect it.
  12. Hi all I've got a 3.2L vr6 with 240000kms on it It blows a crazy amount of blue/white smoke on startup fir the first 5kms of driving then it drives great Compression is good, between 185& 200 on all cylinders I've replaced the valve stem seals with the head on and it still blows a cloud of smoke on acceleration after engine breaking Coolant levels are good there's no foam under the oil filler cap I've replaced the pcv valve assembly It had new timing chains 30000 ks ago before I bought it Kinda running out of ideas.... How else could oil make its way into the cylinder, could the oil cooler be a suspect? I've done a real thorough engine clean to try and clear any carbon build up on the oil rings and tried thicker oils with various oil stabilisers nothing seems to make a difference and it uses a lot of oil I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow to get their take on it, no other mechanic can find a definitive answer to the problem and just say to get a new engine Realistically 240000ks isn't that many my last Vw had nearly 5000000 and drove like new Any help or ideas appreciated as I'm running out of options and can't continue driving round with this smoke -Martin

  20. There's a lot less interaction on the forums nowadays, not just this one - is everyone just facetubin' it nowadays or does that mean the mods have covered all technical Q's now? Just wondering what's changed in recent years?
  21. Smoke after engine rebuild

    What routine are you following for bedding in? Apart from that the usual is to check the working of parts added for running, wiring etc, basically all sensors, lines and so on.

    No, all are welcome, just generally kept to VR related subjects. I'm sure lot's of people can help with anything, lot's of technical Q's already covered in many threads over the years if you have a search 1st.

  25. Smoke after engine rebuild

    I recently did a full engine rebuild on my gold 3 VR6, issue was the car smoked a bit and one plug always had oil. The car starts perfectly however it smokes, I haven’t driven it out just start & idles for a few min. What may be the problem?
  26. Hi I think I had a similar problem. I unplugged my airflow meter plug, if it runs fine without plug attached then its more than likely airflow meter. It worked for me, hope you come right.
  27. So recently ive had an issue with my 94 vr6 running on less cylinders or misfiring (not sure which) when the engine is cold or up until 90 degrees celcius. It will run perfect once it reaches temp but until then it will constatly run rough (as described above) with small times where it quickly runs nice but then goes rough again. I changed leads, plugs and coilpack which made it run great for 2 days with no issues but its doing the same thing again now and im stumped, it just makes no sense, what could it be?? Very desperate, need help asap as car is for work and dont want it to get worse.
