Its called blow by.you have compression leaking past the rings,which is pressurizing the oil and the pcv system which burns crankcase fumes,is now putting oil into the carb.put a filter that is not too restrictive in front so the air,not oil goes in the carb.eventually the oil will gum up the system.in the 60s the engines had braether caps and did not reburn the crankcase fumes.

Hi I need help with my 2004 Freelander TD4: suddenly blue/white smoke coming out the back of the car ( the car did not over heated the heat gauge was at normal position) notes that there was oil leaking...


cracked block. once it heats up the crack gets bigger and the oil gets thinner which makes more oil burn. run car without the oil cap on and see if lots of air/ oil comes out if so thats blow by and you need a new engine.

Why is ther oil in the air cleaner housing


Usually from blow-by which is compression "blowing" past the rings into the oil pan. The extra pressure forces oil thru the vent hose up to the air filter.

Wont start unless I spray starting fluid into air cleaner. run great after that but if you turn it off you have to use starting fluid again . have put new wires plugs rotor cap distb. capand K&N...


A poor spray pattern in the injectors can cause starting issues. Have you tried a good (read not really cheap) fuel injector cleaner like Chevron Techron or Valvoline Synpower fuel system cleaner? A weak ignition system (worn spark plugs, leaking wires) can cause starting issues. You mentioned that it has a K&N filter on it. These filters use an oil in a cotton media to filter out dirt. Sometimes that oil can get out of the filter and contaminate the mass air-flow sensor. Follow the air tube after the filter box and you'll find a sensor in the tube with several wires running from it. It is made from aluminum and the wire housing is plastic. Remove it from the tube and clean it with a mass air-flow sensor cleaner. You HAVE to use a mass air-flow sensor cleaner specifically made for mass air sensors. Don't use anything else like carb, brake, or throttle body cleaner. Those cleaners will leave a residue on the sensor and just cause you more issues.

As for your fuel pressure, the system pressure with the key on, engine off is 60-66 psi. Do you really think you could visually tell the difference between 60 psi and 40 psi? I know I couldn't. You'll have to use a fuel pressure gauge to verify the pressure. For my money, I think your pressure is low. But, cleaning the MAF is much easier then putting a tester in, and it wouldn't hurt, so I would do that first.

1991 toyota camry 4 yl auto 357,000 k's ASM2525 test HCppm limit 66 ppm reading 68 ppm any ideas on quick inexpensive fix Thanks Peter


Wow the kms are getting up there!
Make sure that the spark plugs are not worn and the gaps are correct.
Check the air filter for dust and clogged up with oil etc.Only clean with compressed air,blowing in reverse to dislodge the dust.If too dusty or is an oily dirt,replace the air filter.
Has the oil has been replaced in the last 10,000km.If not change it.
Put a quality fuel cleaner in the fuel tank prior to filling up.
Check that the thermostat runs the engine in the correct area on the temp gauge.too cold will cause the injectors to supply a richer mix.
Clean the PCV(positive crankcase ventilator)valve.
Perhaps clean the air mass?flow meter with a cleaner like CRC sensor or MAF cleaner.(it is the unit near the air cleaner housing that has a multiwire plug on it)If not there,clean the throttle body with a good carby cleaner.
Some worn engines put out a better test when warm,not cold or too long running.
Don't leave it idling for a long time while in test queue,shut it down and wait your turn.
I hope this helps you pass.

I have a 4AF Carby engine. I have replaced the plugs, leads, oil+filter, head gasket, waterpump, radiator and given the carby a clean and changed the air filter. I still seem to lose power on take-off...


Its very possible that it could if it were a vacuum hose that's cracked or trashed.This could definitely cause the symptoms that your experiencing with your car.

I`m sorry i don't speak inglis but the car lose oil sometimes


check valve covers, oil pan gasket, and oil filter itself for leaking. have a good day !! you may also want to replace pcv valve if bad it will draw oil into throttle body and burn it up. and deposit oil in air cleaner. a pcv valve is used for crankcase pressure. if bad it can even cause a leak from a gasket.

How do i fix my a/c system? it doesnt blow out cold air


The first thing is to check the freon, make sure the system is full, if its low then an evacuate and recharge is needed with oil and dye, then check for leaks, by recharging the system you will be able to find leaks and check the systems operation, this make sure the system is good and cold and compressor is good, its like a flat tire you cant find the leak until you fill it with air, good luck and hope this helps.
