  1. 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

    Hey sump slammer, I'm super interested in your posts!! I've got a 3.2L vr6 & had nothing but problems During the year I've owned it, seems Any good I do to it I'm rewarded with terrible symptoms It's got 200k on the clock, wasn't driven for years before I bought it, did a major on it when I first got it, new fluids plugs coils filters belts vaccuum lines, as you do.... Then the problems arrived ! Serious ammounts of blue smoke At start up,new pcv, newvalve stem seals, was all good for a bit Did another major engine flush recently to try eliminate any ring lock n things gone bad to worse! Soo much smoke!!! When it's hot it's all good,the first5kms don't even think of tailgating me!! The smoke is almost identical to the throttle, put my foot down out comes the smoke! Compression is great! 180-200, leak down all good, alll cylinders at 0 Disconnected the pcv today for fun same problem! Gunna disconnect the egr tomorrow to rule that out after that it's almost looking at a new engine, Possibly a broken oil ring ?? Symptoms sounds very familiar to yours so thought you sound like the man to shed any sort of light on my situation ...... On the positive side he car drives great once past the smoke stage, plenty of power limited misfires, very smooth! There's either something terminal I'm not accepting or something possible I haven't checked, can't rule anything out at this point Any thing u got I'll try!!
