Problem with a BMW 316 2002 120K

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.
