i had all those probs with my car, no smoke is bad on your engine, with my car i could lean it nearly all the way in, and still be lots of smoke, and the engine was really hot,


a worn piston and sleeve usally causes this, i have to replace mine.....if this happens to you id advice a engine rebuild, and new parts(piston and sleeve), if not you will suddenly come to a hault due to a sezzed engine


later ppl

Always ensure there is a blue tint to your smoke trail. You can still produce smoke when your engine is lean - it will be very white however.

yes true, but then engine shouldnt get really hot even when not lean, still a sign that the piston and sleeve may be warn...oh well, engine rebuild for me any way, getting a tuned pipe to bolted on to my ride, plus $150+ other stuff



but she will be a blast to drive when its done

It also depends on the fuel u use if u use the stuff off the shelf they usually have alot of castor oil in them and that would make alot of smoke, the best way is tojust keep track of your engine temp (use the spit method).


Hope this helps

You use the spit method to keep track ofyour engine tempthis is if you don't have a temp gauge. You run your car for about a minute or so then bring it in and spit on the engine headif the spit evaporates straight away then your engine is to hot and you should richen the top end but if the spit sizzles away slowly then the engine should beright.


Hope this helps
