Do you have any evidence of oil leaks?

These engines are notorious for leaking oil, both the V6 and the 4 cylinder.

On the V6 the rear valve cover gasket and cam seals are both regular leaks, and typically last about 60k miles each before leaking again.

On 4 cylinders the distributor o-ring or distributor plug for DIS models is a heavy leaker as well.

I understand you have a lot of new parts, but some of these things are known to fail on installation when done by someone not extensively familiar with the product. If you need further assistance, please ask and I will do by best to assist you.

Thanks for using Fixya

Yesterday my fryer started shooting flames out of the fryer. What is the problem?

Check for loose or broken gas line connectors, including the pilot line. Check for blockage in the flue in the back of the fryer. Things occasionally fall down there and people with the bad habit of banging the fry baskets on the top of the flue will eventually clog it up with food particles and carbonized grease. Check for a defective gas pressure regulator, which can cause excessive gas pressure getting to the burners. Check to see if the burners are properly in position and that the holes in the burner are not blocked by soot or grease.

You may be able to check these things by having one person very carefully open the main gas shutoff just enough to for a second person to try to light the fryer. Before attempting to light the fryer listen and smell for escaping gas. If the fryer lights, observe the fryer while the first person very gradually opens the valve further. This can be hazardous, and the person observing should stay well back and the person on the main gas valve should be ready to close the valve.

Personally, if the problem is not obvious, like a loose of broken gas line or a blocked flue, I would leave further testing to a qualified service provider.

Mitsibushi pajero oil light time

White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

Have to put coolant in all the time , no leaks visible, now would not crank

Run a compression test, sounds like a blown head gasket, warpped/cracked cylinder head. Coolant is going through the combustion chamber out the exhaust and into the crankcase/ oil.

1990 buick century limited/ v-6 engine has fuel in the oil. need a fix.

could be a bad fuel pressure regulator. if they do fail, then it may result in low pressure. Mostly, the diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator develops a leakage and the fuel enters the vacuum hose. This may lead to various kinds of troubles in the engine. Signs of a Bad Fuel Pressure Regulator
  • The vehicle engine runs rough and often stumbles and sputters.
  • The engine will not start after ignition. Usually, this problem is encountered in the morning when you start your vehicle. Many times, the engine starts, but stalls shortly after starting.
  • The fuel pump in the vehicle becomes noisy at times.
  • A bad fuel pressure regulator can also result in fouled spark plugs.
  • Last but not the least, the fuel mileage of the engine decreases noticeably. if above signs appear, replace fuel regulator. Check the oil dipstick and see if you smell fuel on it. If you do, it could be a symptom of a bad fuel regulator. The regulator has allowed gasoline to leak into the oil system.

My oil light has started to flicker and when driving im starting to gt a rattle noise. this goes away if i press the accelerator and returns when i take my foot off it....any ideas?

1st check the oil, if the oil level is ok then you will need to install a manual oil pressure gage to get an actual reading on the oil pressure, i think you will need an oil pump, the rattle is the valve train running low on oil pressure. you need to get this checked NOW don't drive the car until you have this checked or you might need more than just a pump. the new pump would much cheaper than an engine.

A friend borrowed our Bayou Turkey Fryer and left the old oil sitting in it for over a month. Is there any way to get it clean or get rid of the smell left from the old oil?

Difficult way is to stop calling him a friend and then...
Make a smooth paste with warm water and a whole box of baking soda. Scrub out what you can to remove it from the surface. Let it sit for an hour or two. Baking soda is well known for absorbing smells and the pH is right for removing oil fairly well. Rinse well. It it is still oily, use some automatic dishwasher soap. This stuff really takes the grease off of things.

Easy way is to keep calling him a friend and ask them to to the above listed things for you!

Please rate me.

I have an Isuzu rodeo '97 v-6 , it's tapping,but not loud uses tiny bit of oil. when i crank it in the morning it smokes but not from oil usage..its steam..smelling of coolant...takes a long time to stop...

The tapping is possibly sticking lifters or damaged rocker arm shafts. The steaming and coolant smell maybe a leaking head gasket or worst a cracked cylinder head. If you have a coolant pressure tester you can remove all the spark plugs and then apply pressure to the cooling system. Leave it set with pressure applied for 15 min. then spin the engine over with the starter and see if there is water coming out of the spark plug holes.

I can tell about a couple of odors from oils that are quite indicative of the places where they oil is leaking into the exhaust though.

You've got a few internal places where oil can get into the engine and even some can get into the combustion chambers. They have distinctive odors and can really help diagnose the cause or reason for the oil consumption.

First let's start with the "sweet-smells".

This means that the oil have gone through the combustion process along with the engine's fuel (gasoline or diesels too!). It is about the same smell you get whiffing the exhaust on a 2-cycle engine with gas-oil premix.

Places where this CAN happen:

1) Cylinder walls ie; piston rings, worn or broken.
2) PCV system where the oil is sucked into the manifold under vacuum and is entrained into the combustion chamber in the normal air-flow to the engine for combustion.
3) Intake runner-to-head surface gasket(s) where the intake can actually **** oil from the cam tray area or the inner valley between the heads and the intake manifold.
4) Occasionally from changing spark plugs in "well" type plug chambers that let the plug get very close to the head through the head casting. Taking a plug out and letting the collected oil fall into the cylinder is usually a temporary situation, but can scare you when it happens.
5) Cracked head or blown head gasket: this usually has to happen where the head has a high pressure passageway for the oil to travel through the head to get to a cam tower on top of the head.
6) Now - here's something that's gonna get debated, fer sure! ONLY the intake valves can leak past their stem seals and allow oil to travel down the stem onto the combustion process. Remember that I am speaking or "sweet" oil smell here.

Now some of the "not sweet" or bitter oil smell:

1) Exhaust guides or stem seals on the EXHAUST valves ONLY can cause a very acrid smell of nasty, eye watering and cough-inducing stink.
2) CVCC or pre-combustion chambers can also cause this problem. The Honda CVCC engines were notorious for this! The auxiliary valve can leak oil into the pre-chamber and then it opens the valve and dumps the burning mess into the main cylinder head area and the results are a bad BAD stink and lots of white/blue smoke.
3) RARELY...very rarely the exhaust port AFTER the exhaust valve seat can become perforated and allow oil to get into the exhaust stream. It does NOT burn here - rather it just cooks-off with a very bad smell.


Acrid oil smell
- the oil has NOT gone through the combustion process in the cylinder head but is rather "cooked" into a stinky odor. It may or may not smoke too much too.

Sweet oil-burning smell - oil that has been burned as part of the combustion process in the combustion chamber on one or more or even all cylinders.
