Erratic idle and blue smoke when engine revved up and on acceleration. Suspect fault due to oil burning from valve stem oil seals and idle control fault.
The fault was cured by carrying out a 1 hour Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush adding Forté Top End Treatment to the new oil.
The customer was contacted a few weeks later and reported that the car was still running smooth and no blue smoke.
With thanks to Alan at A D Motors in Wormley, Hertfordshire
Forté's Technical Helpline receives over 300 calls per month. This blog shares solutions for garage workshops on common driveability concerns that can be quickly and effectively treated. The vast majority of those identified are caused by fuel and oil borne contamination formed by natural degradation or via the combustion process. This is a fact of life for internal combustion engines where fossil fuels and oils are used.
