Intake, combustion, exhaust system is supposed to be separate from lubrication system. You have a breakdown somewhere in that separation evidenced by gas smell in oil and oil coming through exhaust. Possibly head gasket or piston ring. Take it back to the folks who rebuilt it and ask them about it.

The check engine light is an indication that the computer has detected a fault in one of the car's systems. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. The codes will show what faults the computer has identified. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. This will help narrow down the cause of your problem and help you make a determination on how you want to proceed. Hope this helped and best wishes.

you ask the internet bunnies for EFI fuel conversions,
try here on the nuts forums. eco nuts.

why not just run GAS (gasoline)??? Is TV making you feel like a planet killler, really? turn it off. that TV> and LIVE.
it's never been cheaper (GAS) and is sold every where, on the road usa.
(adjusted for inflation it dirt cheap)!! need proof? (im old and know)

reasons not to; go (LNG.LPG or whatever)
when selling car, nobody wants this odd duck hacked up car.
when getting it fixed , nobody wants to fix any hacked up car.
for sure on long trips ever think about that? stuck on the road for ever.... somewhere...
passing smog , can't. (no EPA certs on a hack job)
selling car with not passing SMOG, nobody wants it.
in CALIF , you can see it lacking that certifications, (both)

the only way to go green
is LESS C02 (all engine running perfect make max CO2)
ASE class skip this topic?

and that means (using fuel) a tiny engine. is the cure.
buy a car with a tiny engine,
and less weight.
there is no other way, electrics only move the smog out of town.
to the electric plant.. and overloads the grid, etc,etc,...

do like EU, run a 1liter car,
But in USA ,we dont have many to choose.
smart car? mini?
Fiat 500?

keep in mind crash safety
living is #1 , for most folks that think it all through, (on the road )
IMO! YMMV. etc.

google this
total cost of ownership on cars. (life of car)

guess what? it';s not fuel, sorry.

1999 GV sold all over mother earth,
you are in USA
we spell colour Color here, so you are not here ,right?
J20 engine, sure
5speed stick sure.
please state a real question or problem or symptoms, thanks
what speed se?or do I need in colour'

1999 Suzuki... | Answered on Mar 09, 2017

easter egg hunt 1million
Car speed?
or ABS speed sensors. we cant guess, whats wrong, can we.?
USA car,? we are USA, cars not here are vastly different.
why ask not telling problem? scans told you sensor is bad
post the DTC error. speedo dead.Odom, dead? what?
J20 engine ,
5 speed stick shift box. manual trans,,m/t
4wd or 2wd?
toss coin NOT ABS sensors.
there are 2 speed sensors ill do all 3 permutations of car
4wd one or tail of transfer case
2wd one on tail of 5speed box.
any, the backup speed sensor in the speedometer cluster
89-98 years and was deleted 1999, usa.

why ask ,tell why. so we can be on the same page and
not have to document all the above.

color is of on concern, only correct part numbers matter !!!

colour (non usa spelling) is my only real useful HINT.
never said speedometer fails. or odometer fails
the trans is manual so no speed sensor needed ever there to shift automatially,its a stick

scan it yet.?

i looked at our 1999 usa GV . serv. man
best i can tell speedo has new electronic head.
no speedo cable. first year, in fact. (i owned a 97 and 04)

so when VSS goes dead (say)
the speedo goes dead
odom goes dead
and ECU sets DTC errors for VSS dead.
3 clear symptoms.
some cars have different VSS1 to match, axle gears.
the vss gear on end .

on newer cars with stick shift
like mine now
the aBS sends speed to PCM
so there is no transmission speeds sensors at all , 6sp, m/t
so lacking symptoms, me bollixed.
