Australian Car Repair Issues? Ask an Auto Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** engine has a common issue with the valve stem seals leaking. When the engine is shut down oil will seep past the seals and enter the combustion chamber. This occurs as the vehicle sits. When you go and restart it you will get smoke as then oil burns out. In some cases the issue will be less pronounced if the oil is in god shape as oil that is old and broken down can seep past the seals easier. The cylinder heads would need to be removed and rebuilt in order to repair this. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need anything else.
It does vary greatly but typically about $1500-2000
