2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Question: blue smoke on start up, antifreeze smell in oil
Answer #1Superbob February 22, 2011, 20:30Master
the blue smoke on startup sounds like worn out valve guide seals or worn valve gudes. I don't know about a coolant smell in the oil, if the oil is clean and clear there's no coolant in it. Coolant in the oil looks like a chocolate milkshake, very easy to see.
