    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

    Blue smoke means your burning oil. There could be too much clearance from your valve stem and valve guides. But I wonder if that specialist may have misadjusted the valves whilst he was under there. But whatever it is, take it back to him and tell he screwed up.
