View Full Version : smoking and oil leaking

05-24-2009, 10:36 AM
My nephew was driving his 1995 sc and it started to smoke real bad. There is alot of smoke coming out of the egr hose that connects to the throttle body. There is oil leaking from the valve covers especially on the left side. The car is missing on one cylinder and it runs rough then quits. This car has 154,000 miles and was a great running car till now. Any thoughts to what is wrong. I am thinking piston but you know how hard it is to get to the plugs on these cars to do a compression test.

Where would all the oil come from if it were headgaskets. The intercooler even has oil in it.

IC almost always have oil in them from the PCV system introducing oil mist upstream of the Throttle Body.

What color is the smoke? If it's white then indeed your headgasket's blown. I just did a headgasket job for a friend and he had more than the normal amount of oil in his IC tubing.
