Why did my 1984 chevy 305 start blowing white smoke so i checked oil and found water in it. but as i took off valve covers i found metal peices


White smoke, coolant in the oil-you had a cylinder head gasket failure. The valve train pieces indicate more damage-whew! Hard to guess, but if the coolant was in the oil for some time, it may have destroyed the engine. The bottom end bearings could be shot as well. I would be looking for a replacement low mileage engine. Or buy a NEW CAR!

Low gas mileage city and hiway @ 4-5 MPG below MSRP sticker data of 15 and 21MPG on a NEW 2013 Silverado. 2000 miles on odometer and mileage not improving.


is this calculated mileage or what the estimated mileage is showing on the dash. Have you checked to see what you get on just the freeway?

What are your driving habits like?

How is your tire pressure?

Do you make a lot of short trips?

Will a new carbuator on a 1985 F-150 really improve my mileage


It is against federal regulations to remove anything at all,
from any vehicle.

Doing so, may hurt more than help, unless you
understand the technology your removing

A new carb is not the answer

Rebuilding yours yourself ,may make it start & run smoother,
but every day all vehicles wear & get less mileage,even brand
new ones.

All ford trucks from 1960 to this day have gotten 13 mpg at most

Black smoke when accelerating gently from low revs, no power loss. computer showing good mpg. really quick for a 115 bhp. any ideas


Black smoke is usually caused by a rich fuel mixture.
But if that is the case you should not be getting good gas mileage.
It could be burning oil, which would mean you are adding oil.

SUDDEN LOSS OF MPG AFTER DEAD BATTERY Hello. We have a 1999 Plymouth Voyager. Wonderful vehicle -- well engineered and comfortable. Last year our mileage dropped suddenly from 36 mpg to 24 following...


When the battery went dead you engine control module lost all learned programming, drive it for a few weeks as normal to restore this and the mileage will be back to normal.

The mileage on my Jeep has dropped from 16 to 12 mpg in the last 3-4 weeks. I have been pulling a popup tent trailer behind it (only weighs about 1,600 lbs.), but the mileage drop has been evident even...


These are the most common causes for bad mileage.
Tire pressure is a huge factor (Tire should be set at the factory recommendation or 1-2 psi above, but never below - Tire should also be a Low Rolling Resistance Tire)
Oil level (you said it's OK, so I assume it's not above the full mark)
Running extra accessories (A/C, etc)
Dirty Air Filter
bad Ignition timing
engine running hotter than normal
fuel injectors may be stuck partially open
bad fuel pressure regulator
faulty emission control device (this usually triggers a check engine light)

'95 Subaru Suddenly Getting Horrible Gas Mileage


Winter time driving does reduce the MPG due to temp not allowing the fluids to warm to thinner viscosity allowing parts to operate with less friction. Hope this eases you a bit. Have a good day.
