smoking

Post by NedKelly » Wed May 16, 2018 12:23 pm

I fueld up, took my time before opening the car up. Accelerated 2nd/3rd upt to 60, slowed to join dual, then went to overtake a lorry (in 4th), stuttering acceleration and quite a bit of blue smoke out the rear. Slowed down, into 5th then 6th, sped up a bit but still blue smoke out the rear. Cruised at 50-odd then off dual. Down a couple of gears and a little throttle and no smoke??

Smoke has seemed to clear but will check again later. Was hoping for some feedback on this. TIA

Classic "oil burp". Do a search on here and you'll find masses of info.

You will want to clean your intake now. But you'll find out all about that when you search.

(And why did you tell us all about your belts... :-k :?: )
