1990 Geo metro popped and poured white smoke out
its a GEO POPPER.
"no oil up on crank case"
no idea what that means.??????
yes PCV valve. do clog.
white smoke at end if tail pipe.
you didnt say where,?
white smoke has 2 reasons.(tail end)
Steam and oil.
steam goes away fast and looks just like moms tea pot. and smells sweet, like the antifreeze in engine. (rad cap off ,sniff sniff, cold engine)
oil burning, smoke is very very slow to go away.
and smells like , blush burned oil.
if not sure what burn oil looks like or smells like
take out the dip stick on a hot engine
let it drip to the hot exhaust manifold there.
now you know. and is a key diagnostic skill.
no oil seen on dip stick end?, you mean that?
well you need to keep that from happening,
doing weekly service, and for sure old cars.
26 years old.
low oil invites blowing up a good engine.
if it did that smoke is oil
if it did 10x worse, both .
my wild guess is you meant to say
I didnt see oil leaking on top of engine.
if the engine backwires to the air cleaner
you forgot to replace the cam belt every 60k miles
the pcv will also be clogged, on cars not getting proper service, super colon.
if the PCV clogs,engine may leak oil bad.
this engine btw is a G10 3 cylinder.
with TBI injection.
we can talk TBI all day, owned one.
white smoke can come from many places
exhaust manifold, leaks of oil can land there
engine can back fire to air cleaner making smoke.
steam is much worse. ill not delve in to that yet/.
