    blue smoke low compression 1995 wrx

    Hi i am new to thos forum today and do not know if i am posting in the correct place, I need help with my 1995 WRX classic I was driving it last night pretty hard and then started losing acceleration had lots of blue smoke coming from the exhaust and lost cpmpression, it was misfiring and had smoke coming from the dump valve the lot!! I checked and there was lots of oil all over the top of the engine. Doesn't sound good i know that much. Ive recently had all rocker covers and cam seals done as they were all leaking. This was done by a subaru specialist. Any ideas what sort of headache im looking at. Thanks

    It kind of sounds like you may have a bad turbo gasket. Blue smoke = oil burning. Low compression = turbo problem. Right? Seems like you may have a problem with your turbo. Maybe you blew it... Idk.

    How do you know you've lost compression? Only way to check this is to do a compression test.

    I suspect a blown motor.

    low compression does not mean turbo... it means pistons, rings, or valves usually
