I'm looking at a 1998 Toyota Avalon XLS. about 160,000 miles. Owner says he notices a slight blue smoke, but checked for oil leaks and there were none, What does this mean? I need a reliable inexpensive car
1998 Toyota Avalon XLS for sale. It has leather heated seats, CD player with cassette,
sunroof, timing belt, tensioners and water pump were replaced at 156k, and just recently
had all the brakes replaced and the rotors turned. The car drives great and looks pretty
good for the age. Our daughter did run into the back of a truck but only cosmetic
damage was done. We fixed it ourselves so it shows a clean car fax but I just want to be
up front about it.
Blue smoke is usually burning oil. At the mileage you indicated, the valve seals are probably worn and or the piston rings letting some oil to bypass into the combustion chamber.
