Oil. if the smoke is coming from between the engine block and the firewall then its probably oil on the exhaust manifold. Make sure that your engine is not leaking oil from the seals and make sure the oil cap and dipstick are in place, start your car, with the hood up and observe the smoke if its bad then id take it to a mechanic but if its only mild then providing your engine isn't leaking oil it should burn off within a few minutes of the engine being started, i say watch the smoke because if it is leaking oil onto the exhaust in great amounts then it is possible it could catch fire.

Rocker covers leaking oil onto the exhaust manifold is nothing to ignore unless you enjoy watching your car burn to the ground.

How do you adjust the carburetor on my 83 buick regal limited 4.1L-v6


There should be an idle control motor on the side of the carb. The computer controls idle speed by moving the stop on that control motor. The stop is adjustable and there may also be a base idle adjusting screw near the control motor.

If your 1983 Buick Regal has a good battery but makes a clicking noise and will not start, you should check and make sure its getting spark, check your starter, also check your battery connections, and the starter cables.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My 1985 buick regal limited lets smoke into the car when i turn on the heater..what can cause this?? also when i open hood i see a little bit of smoke too?? if oil is burning on top of the motor,can it get...


If the smoke is white it may have a small coolant leak in the heater core. This would look more like a light fogging over the windshield when running the defrost rather than smoke though. Hope this helps.

I cant figure out how to completely remove my passenger front door panel


ther are acorn or christmas tree clips some people call them around the bottom of the door. There are also two large philips head screws located behind the armrest and if you have a pull strap for closing the door there may be two there as well. there is also a screw that holds the trim for the door handle itself.

1983 Buick Regal drivers rear window is stuck in down position. Is there a way to manually move it up without replacement of motor/switch?


You would probably need to remove the motor from the regulator, pull the window up by hand, then reattach the motor to keep it locked in the up position.
