Default dying 93 dohc

I got a problem with my 93 dohc 5 spd. it blows blue smoke bad. my guess is my rings are pretty much useless. also when ever i come to a top an push in the clutch the car will die and only start if the lights and radio are off. any help would be appreciated

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Use the forum jump at the bottom of the page and go to the How-To Library. Right at the top you'll see instructions for replacing the ECTS. Do that. Then go there and search for MMO piston soak. Do that 3 or 4 times.

There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

Sound like you should rebuild the engine or buy a used one.
