Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
Hi, i own a toyota
corolla xl 1996 model. it has 12 valves at 1.3 liter displacement. recently it
underwent general overhaul -- replaced valves, valve guide, valve seals, piston
rings and had the cylinder head refaced. after all of these, the car still belches
gray smoke that even gets worst when going uphill. oil level goes down
considerably as shown by the dip stick. what else needs to be done?
If you remove thermostat water will circulate too fast and will not cool down, replace thermostat and check if your fan is turning in correct direction. Also make sure your ignition timing is ok. I found on some vehicles the waterpump seems ok but when vehicle starts heating up the impeller gets loose on the shaft. Check your brakes if they are not binding.

Is it the 2E engine with carburetor...or the fuel injection one?

Check valve cover breather if strong air flow,maybe ring setting.. ask mechanic if he or she set piston ring clearance, piston ring position,, right maybe your engine is pumping oil..
