Since your car is 23 years old it could be several things, one being the drain holes in the head could be stopped up and allowing oil to pool up in the top end under valve cover. When that happens the oil can be sucked down around the valve stems and cause smoking. If you haven't changed oil regularly the oil could be diluted and very thin causing seepage around the rings and valve stems. Also, it could be that your engine is just plain worn out.

I have a 1990 2.2 subaru legacy it is either burning oil or losing it somewhere but no puddles head gaskets seem to be fine doesn't overheat and no water in the oil blows smoke on startup

I would check for a defective PCV valve. If it has not been changed, I have seen cases where they suck the oil right out of the engine. Depending on the mileage, I wouldn't be concerned over a small puff of smoke when starting the engine. Thanks.

1991 dynasty 3.3 valve lifter removal for cleaning or replacing

Before you tear apart half the engine can I suggest this. Find a can of "seafoam motor tune" you should be able to find it just about anywhere automotive parts are sold. Poor half the can in the oil. Start the engine and let it run until the lifter noise goes away. Change the oil and filter. Add the other half a can of seafoam to the oil and drive it. If you have a sticky lifter this will free it up. I have yet for it not to work. If the noise doesn't go away its probably not a lifter.

Shutters smokes like crazy idles bad loss of

what color is the smoke if it is blue it is from oil which indicates a lot of oil is getting into the combustion chamber & being burnt which means you have a serious problem ( either rings or valve guides & seals) if it is black it is excessive fuel & you have a problem with the carburetor,maybe sticking needle & seat or the float has a hole in it & has filled up with petrol or fuel injectors which ever your vehicle has ...........cheershope this helps....

Why does my honda accord smoke reel bad

This is either worn valve stem seals or worn out oil rings. Have someone follow you if the car smokes more as you release the throttle on deceleration it is most likely valve stem seal if it smokes more on acceleration it is worn oil piston rings. If the smoke is white you have a blown head gasket blue smoke means burning oil, black smoke means too rich (to much gas reaching motor)

1992 Dynasty oil pressure drops at stops?

Hi I am Vortash sounds like you have one of four problems either the oil you are using is inferior and you need to upgrade to a better one synthetics are best ..
Your Oils pump is failing reducing the oil pressure ..
Leaky gaskets allowing pressure to ecape .
Or more drasticaly your main bearing shells are wearing giving the the oil more ways to escape under pressure . this is usually discernable by a knocking or rumbling noise especially on tick over .. hope it is just the oil for your sake regards Vortash

White Smoke coming out of bonnet & exhaust,stinks of burning oil 1989 dodge dynasty is blowing out white smoke now, and it does smell like burning oil, i owned a 1988 dodge dynasty and it did the same...


Sounds typical of head gasket failure.

With this you get oil into cylinders / water into cylinders, burning oil, loosing water - but no leaks. "boiling" of radiator and overflows.

Check your coolant and oil levels - they will be low.

Get a few quotes for a head gasket replacement - and timing belt change, as it has to come off when you do this anyway & no sense putting an old one on - they often snap if retensioned.

If this solves your problem, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! thanks.
