Question about 1990 Chevrolet Caprice
I HAVE A 1990 CHEVY CAPRICE, WHICH HAS A 305 IN IT. I'VE HAD IT FOR 3 YEARS REPLACING PARTS AND ETC. I RECENTLY HAD AN OIL CHANGE DONE, AND AFTER MY OIL CHANGE WAS DONE MY CAR STARTED SMOKING, I WAS TOLD THAT SOME OIL MAY HAVE SPILLED ON THE MOTOR AND ITS BURNING OFF. WELL ITS BEEN A FEW MONTHS SINCE THEN. AND IT STILL SMOKE. I TOOK IT TO MECHANIC, HE TOLD ME THAT THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY CAR. YES IM A FEMALE, BUT I KNOW WHATEVER IS WRONG WITH MY CAR CAN OR HOPEFULLY CAN BE FIXED, SO MY QUESTION TO YOU GUYS IS............ WHAT CAN I POSSIBLY DO TO STOP MY CAR FROM SMOKING. THE MOTOR IS GOOD, I THOUGHT ABOUT BUYING A NEW MOTOR, BUT BEFORE I DO I WOULD LIKE TO TRY AND FIX THE PROBLEM. ALSO SOMETHIME WHEN I START IT UP I WILL CUT BACK OFF. THEN I HAVE TO START IT AGAIN THIS TIME PRESSING ON THE GAS TO KEEP IT FROM CUTTING OFF. BUT IT HESITATES TO STAY STARTED. THEN ONCE ITS UP AND RUNNING I CAN SMELL SOME GAS FUMES, IT HAS A FUEL INJECTED START.
Well the running rough part sounds like a fuel pressure regulator..and as far as the smoke goes there could be a puddle of it somewhere on the motor so it spills a little at a time causeing it to smoke for a while or your oil filter could be loose and that would cause it to leak so maybie ckeck your once in a while to see if it loses oil or anything like that.
