Question about 2007 Toyota Yaris
when you start the car its alright in the begining and then it starts smoking white. And when you switch the engine off, and when you undo the oil cap its releases the presure.
I would also like to enquire about the breeders if its the cause,and how many breeders does the car consist.
The Car is Toyota model is lucida TD 2.2 (diesel) K range
They were using a lower quality gasket for a while and when the oil
pressure builds while the car is running oil was forced out passed the
gasket. Your car smokes a bit more in a turn becasue the oil that
settles on the crossmember support is hitting the exhaust pipe. Easiest
way to tell what is leaking is the smell. If it is oil...it'll have a
rubber/onion odor where pwer steering fluid will have more of a strong
burned rubber smell.
Best thing to do is to have a mechanic check and replace ( if needed) the oil pan gasket. It is possible like someone else mentioned that it could be a valve cover gasket but the oil leak would be obvious.
Power streering leak- Its been a while since I played with a Taurus. I think it has a rack-and Pinion type steering system like the older models. The older models had some issues after about 75,000 miles with the R&P seals, requiring replacement of the rack. Parts arent bad....like 150 dollars. Might cost a bit in labour to replace.
