I bought a acura 96 car drives great just smokes bad uses min oil


Blue smoke often means bad rings. Expensive repair. Black smoke could mean bad valves. Also an expensive repair.

Check compression. Your mechanic can do that easily, and should not cost a lot.

98 Subaru leaking oil


Oil leak will not change run temp but can cause a fire.
The smoke is the oil burning on the engine. The 1st thing you need to do is clean the oil off the engine.
Next top oil off to the full line on the dip stick.Now start the engine hold idle up to around 1600 rpm for 1 to 2 minutes keep engine run and look for the oil leak. Don't get caught in any moving parts and things will be hot so be careful. Most likely from your valve cover.

Smokine exhaust.


Take the pcv valve out of the hose and check it...Shake it,if it rattles it probably is good..But a new one would not hurt.Make sure any other ventilation hoses are routed right.If it only smokes while the hose is connected,then it is pulling oil from the valve cover into the intake and burning in the combustion chambers...Check your oil level as well...Good Luck!!!

96 eclipse need more info..


This sounds like the timing belt is shot. Remove the distributor cap, have your helper crank the engine. Is the rotor turning?? If not, then it is the timing belt. Some engines are rather forgiving when the belt breaks, some will get bent valves. Frankster016
