hey guys my gu 2.8 started blowing blue and sometimes if its thick white smoke.
im pretty sure its oil smoke but not sure exactly whats causing it?? thought it wasa the turbo, replaced it, thought it couldve been the pcv, blocked it on intake side of turbo and just ran it to the ground.

i have no idea....???

if it helps you can rev it out and it will blow big puffs then clear but as you let it idle it slowly gets worse...and worse....and worse........

Yeah well it's always warmed up if it's held under high load for a while but nothing unusual. It's defiantly oil smoke and not steam. Is it possible to have cracked the head between the oil gallery and the cylinder??

SD33t did the same thing when my timing was way out.
***** to start...
You could drive it around and it would smoke unless you gave it full throttle, then you stop and it would start billowing white smoke and running like a pig

Hmm you could be right there although mines running just as good as it always has, it's hard to think what else it could be. Valve stem seals maybe??

Hmm could be I've had a dominator chip on it for a bit but noone else has this problem. And I've disconnected it for the last 1000k's
