Default Maruti 800 problem | Suggestions Please

I have a Maruthi 800 car, its been nearly 4000 odd Kms since i've got the servicing done.

Recently there is thick white smoke when i race the car. I had checked and found that in the Oil was present in the Spark Plug.

Can anyone suggest me an alternative to help. If its servicing please let me know on what all parameters to check and change. Please let me know the Brand of Oil i need to use for Engine oil.

Dude thick white smoke means your piston rings are gone. The engine oil is seeping into the combustion chamber. Time to overhaul the engine.

That is a fair bit of mileage isnt, it?

Your car will need a rebore and maybe a head job. Take it to a good mechanic he'll sort it out.

Hi Jramprakash,

We would appreciate if you take the time out to post your threads in the correct forum section. This topic obviously didnt belong in the accessory / parts section.

Thanks

white smoke equates that its a coolant leak in ur combustion and signals a head gasket job.
When doing the head gasket job make sure that the HEAD has no cracks.

do let us know ur coolant consumption

but hes saying white smoke also need to know if its one plug or all that has oil.
and an easy test would be to get the radiator cap out, warm the engine and smell for exhaust gas or a 20min pressure test with all plugs out and cranking will give the feedback required.

coolant consumption should give a clear view.

Hi guys typically white smoke in the rainy season seems common in most cars.Usually white smoke means it's water vapor,black means engine needs tuning and is burning too much petrol and blue means its burning oil.
I have noticed white smoke from many cars in the rainy season.neverthless have the car checked out at a garage.

the oily "plug" could be a rich issue

"Oil was present in the Spark Plug" - a tell tale sign of piston ring problem. Your engine is due for an overhaul - 20 K I guess and you get warranty for 50K Kms or so...
