VOLVO 850 SMOKE PROBLEM

1993 Volvo 850 • 168,000 miles

I just bought a 93 vovlo 850 glt. The car had not been run for a while so when I drove it home I noticed a oil burning smell. When I opened the hood there was oil all over the passenger side of the car and when I took off the cap to the engine there was smoke coming out. I dnt know what this could be.

Could be bad rings in the motor.

You need to find out where the leak is before you destroy the motor

I found the leak in the lower tube of the dipstick gasket. But the oil is at different areas

Ok, have a dye added to the oil and have someone with an ultraviolet light pin point the leak
