    Default Blue smoke **Corsa**

    My Aunt is having trouble with her 2001 1.2 16v corsa, she is getting blue smoke on start up, then clears after warmed up........The car runs great does not miss a beat, only 80k miles with FSH.

    Am I right in thinking oil is getting into the cylinder, maybe pistonrings propblem?? Is there any advice someone can give me to narrow it down as I know piston ring replacement can be rather costy around £500.
    We just want to be sure before paying out big cash......
    If it is can anyone recommend a garage or someone in and around west mids/shropshire that will be cheap but reliable.

    Cheers peeps

    P.S sorry its not vectra but hey its a vx lol...................

    EIther that or the valve stems/sleeves have given up. Good luck finding the fault. We had 3 Corsas and they drunk oil like it was going out of fashion.

    Cheers gazza never thought about stem valves, is there a way of telling which it is?
    Would a compression test tell me if its pistonrings??

    Compression test will identify piston rings or rule them out. Also a sniff test should help rule out the cylinder head/gasket.
